Brittany's WFTW Service

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. My friend Brittany is a 27-year-old occupational therapist. Recently, she volunteered with Wheels for the World to take wheelchairs overseas. Now, because Brittany is an occupational therapist and not a physical therapist, she doesn’t have much experience fitting wheelchairs. Nevertheless, we assigned Brittany to assist one of our seasoned physical therapists. We told her to observe and help where she could. And she did… for the first hour. That’s when the PT gave her a set of tools and sent her out on her own! Brittany simply prayed Psalm 109: “Oh my goodness, Lord, help me.” And suddenly, all her training in physiology and body mechanics kicked in! Right away she was able to properly fit a wheelchair to a child in need. Are you an OT or PT with a heart to serve others? Hey visit joniandfriends.org to find great ways to serve through Wheels for the World.
