This ministry, sponsored by Joni Eareckson Tada, provides wheelchairs to children around the world. We’ve helped over 130 children receive a personalized wheelchair and hear the gospel of Jesus! It’s Joni’s goal to raise 200,000 wheelchairs by 2020. Stop by the Ministry Corner this Sunday to learn how you can be a part of this missions project.
