Amidou and Adizai

This is Joni Eareckson Tada. A few years ago our Wheels for the World team was in Cameroon, when we met Amidou—a disabled Muslim man—and his wife, Adizai. After we fit this man to his new wheelchair, Amidou and Adizai began eagerly reading the French Bible we gave them. Later we watched as Adizai tucked the precious scriptures under her left arm—a place where Muslim women put their most treasured possession, under their arm and nearest their heart. In Proverbs 7, God calls us to “keep His words and treasure His commandments.”  Oh, that we would treasure God’s word like Amidou and Adizai! Friend, I encourage you to open His word today, and treasure a piece of Scripture. Keep it near and dear to your heart. And if you’d like to learn more about how we are reaching disabled people around the world like this couple in Cameroon, visit
