Through Your Prayers…

“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.” - 1 Timothy 2:1

Lazaro and Glenda needed a miracle when they arrived at our Wheels for the World outreach in El Salvador. They brought their five-year-old daughter, Ruth, who cannot walk, and their other daughters Rosa and Amilta. Lazaro and Glenda heard through their church that Joni and Friends was coming to deliver wheelchairs—sent by you! They wondered, could this finally be the answer to our prayers for Ruth?

Feeling hopeful when they arrived, Lazaro and Glenda knew they could never afford a wheelchair for their daughter. But that morning, these parents' prayer for their disabled daughter was finally answered… because of your prayers and generosity!

Lazaro and Glenda watched as our volunteer Wheels physical therapists and mechanics tenderly and perfectly fit Ruth into her very own wheelchair.

“This wheelchair has changed our lives,” Lazaro told us with tears in his eyes. “Ruth is so happy and excited to be mobile and go outside like the other kids.” Lazaro’s message to you is powerful: “I’m praying blessings for every one of you, just like you’ve given us today.”

You gave Ruth the opportunity to have a better life through your gift. Because of your faith-in-action, Ruth and her family have much to smile about and praise God for today. Today, through your gift, you can change the lives of children with disabilities, one child at a time. Thank you!

Thank you for sharing how Lazaro and Glenda’s prayers were answered for their daughter Ruth needing a wheelchair. It’s a blessing to send money for wheelchairs but a double blessing when Joni and Friends tell us the names of the recipient. And it’s all done in the name of Christ and for His glory!

How can anyone after reading these stories about not only children but adults who need wheelchairs not want to help to provide wheelchairs. Even small amounts of $10 or $20 help towards providing wheelchairs. This is why I partner with Joni & Friends to help in a small way to spread the love of God.
