I’m the kind of person who loves goals – when goals are met, it tells me we are making great progress! Four years ago, I asked you to join me in reaching an exciting goal for Wheels for the World called Hope Overflowing 100,000 by 2020. Before that, you helped us deliver over 100,000 wheelchairs and Bibles worldwide, changing countless lives by the power of the Gospel.
And now? Our goal is to deliver another 100,000 wheelchairs and Bibles by 2020. And praise God, we’re on track to meet that goal by next year!
Back in 2014, five-year-old Ebenezer, who lives in Ghana, West Africa, received the 100,000th wheelchair. That special moment marked a milestone for what God would do through you to bring “hope overflowing” to thousands more disabled children and adults who desperately need Jesus.
Next year, we’re trusting God that we can deliver over 200,000 wheelchairs in total because of your faithfulness—praise God for the kingdom work He is doing through you!
Disabled children like Ebenezer need to experience firsthand the compassion and goodness of Jesus. Their families need to see that He is good to them, and is worthy of their trust. Through your faithful prayers and financial support, each wheelchair and Bible given proves that, yes, God is good and deserves our trust, no matter how difficult life is!
The Lord is using you to alleviate the suffering of children with disabilities worldwide. He works through you to demonstrate His compassion on those who have been forgotten. He needs our hands, as well as your help and prayers.
So, on behalf of the people we serve together, let’s meet our goal for 2020… let’s continue this kingdom work for future generations to come!
“The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.” Psalm 145:9
Wheels for the World provides the gift of mobility along with the hope of the Gospel to people impacted by disability around the world. You can get involved by donating a wheelchair, serving on an international outreach, or giving so that wheelchairs can be restored and sent to someone in need.
