Every year, we meet so many families whose everyday lives are impacted by disability: weary single-moms who worry about making ends meet, siblings who patiently help their brother with autism, grandparents who lovingly care for a baby with neonatal withdrawal ... Families that need encouragement from Christians like you. And it’s why at the start of the year, we select five families affected by disability to be the recipients of “Hearts for the Disabled.” You can participate by sending a Valentine’s Day card, gift, or note to one or more of the five selected families. Just download this printout or listen to this week’s radio programs to learn more.

To encourage you, we’ve put together a video of Calvin, Joshua and Jonathan — a special needs family blessed by last year’s “Heart for the Disabled” project. Join us and share this project with others through Facebook or your church bulletin. Because together we can do as 1 Thessalonians 5 says, “Therefore encourage and build up one another ... Comfort the discouraged. Help the weak.” Thanks for having a heart for the disabled!

Is it too late to do this? If not, when do you need the cards, etc.?

Dear Joni and Friends~ Such a beautiful video on how a simple card can encourage a family with the LOVE of Christ Jesus! Thank You for sharing and letting others be involved. I listen to your radio broadcast on my way to work and heard the show today about sending a Valentine through your organization. I enjoy making cards so this will be a nice way to contribute. May Blessings pour in for those we can serve and hearts we can touch! Sincerely~ Suzanne
