UgandaMy friends, Adrienne and Francis Mugwanya, often help us when either Wheels for the World or our Cause 4 Life interns travel to Uganda. They have an outreach in Uganda called The Father’s Heart Mobility Ministry, and they love helping us distribute wheelchairs, Bibles, and Joni books to Ugandans with disabilities. When Adrienne sent me this photo of a recent wheelchair recipient who also got a Bible and a Joni book, she said, “Joni, you have to imagine the exclamations of joy from this woman, just like any African woman exclaiming ‘iyiyiyiyiyi!’” My eyes got wet, just imagining the scene. I replied to Adrienne, “What an AMAZING photo, and I'm so glad you added the sound effects – it made it all the more rich and beautiful. That’s one African woman with a disability I can’t wait to say ‘iyiyiyiyi’ with when we get together in heaven!”
