As a single mother in Guatemala, a mother of two boys with disabilities, life is not easy for Maria.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. As a single mother in Guatemala, a mother of two boys with disabilities, life is not easy for Maria. To make ends meet, she goes from house-to-house washing clothes. Since her boys cannot walk, they stay at home – never going to school, church or even out into the village. Wheelchairs would change everything for Maria’s family, and it’s why this mother earnestly prayed for the impossible… two wheelchairs for her sons. So, when our Wheels for the World team arrived in Guatemala, Maria was ecstatic! As her sons were fitted for new wheelchairs, she told our team, “I’m so grateful you answered His call and chose to give generously. You are volunteers of God!” I love that! Oh, friend, you can be a volunteer of God by serving families like Maria’s in the spirit of Ephesians chapter 6. Find out at joniandfriends.org.
