The first ever Wheels for the World outreach in Northeast Brazil was met with huge participation from God's servants in-country. The host church provided many interpreters, mechanics and other helpers. Some recipients traveled 12 hours on a bus.
This banner says: Everyone! We have arrived, enter here!
The joy of helping those with special needs has captured the hearts of many for the first time at this outreach.
Our thanks to the Legacy team at Woodmen Valley Chapel in Colorado Springs for their great work sewing the chest supports.
I'm reminded just how great a distance God's arms can span when he brings together his servants from thousands of miles away. Although you were not here, he has used your prayers and financial support to bring about this wonderful work. One hundred and eleven individuals accepted Christ at the WFTW Northeast Brazil distribution.
Camp Refuge Missionary Peterson writes: Traveling to Catende, Barreiros and Palmares, in February, on 3 missionary journeys to nursing homes for the handicapped and elderly, we depended on the participation of our beloved and dedicated brothers from Feira de Santana in Bahia. These adult orphans received wheelchairs and more importantly the gospel at this distribution at the Refugio.
What's next ? Dinalva, Jenny and I will travel to Feira De Santana tomorrow where we will visit a young woman that has been in a coma for some time now and we will need to assess for a wheelchair. Dinalva, also wants us to meet Ebenezer, a man in a wheelchair with a dream. His dream is to establish a camp for people with disabilities in the state of Bahia, Brazil. Sound familiar? What a privilege to be serving and being part of His great plan...We also will be traveling to Curitiba for another Joni and Friends WFTW distribution, and then travel to Argentina before returning to Camp Refuge for camp in November. If you would like to partner with us, continue to pray for our travels as we share the gospel while providing the gift of mobility. Consider partnering financially as we purchase our tickets and other travel expenses. And also consider joining us on one of these outreaches! 2 Cor. 9:10-15
