Meet Wilber

On this video, you can see and hear Wilber’s joy! He has received renewed hope, through salvation in Christ, and the tangible help of a wheelchair. When a diving accident left him a quadriplegic, this young man suddenly found himself alone, spending his days sitting in a chair at his grandmother’s house. But through you, God provided for Wilber.

At our Wheels for the World outreach in El Salvador, Wilber received a wheelchair, allowing him move forward with his life. As our Wheels team worked to fit the chair perfectly, the Good News was shared using a Gospel bracelet. Wilber eagerly received Christ with a determination to know and follow the Savior who came to set him free. “God saved my life for a purpose,” he said. “God uses Joni, and today I have learned that He can make something from my life, as well.”

With your donation today, you can send Bibles and wheelchairs to more people like Wilber. To find out more about Wheels for the World, click here.
