Wheelchair Distribution Delivers the Hope of the Gospel in Thailand

Namthan has cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus. She cannot walk or even sit on her own and has a permanent shunt surgically implanted in her brain.   Raised Buddhist, Namthan’s parents believed that bad karma caused Namthan’s disability. But when Joni and Friends brought Namthan a wheelchair through our Wheels for the World program, Namthan’s family learned the truth: Namthan is not cursed but blessed, made and loved by God.   As Namthan received her wheelchair, her parents heard the Gospel and watched Christ's love in action. Now instead of lying on her back, Namthan sits upright, enjoying her new mobility. Through Joni and Friends, Namthan's family experienced acceptance and dignity in Christ.
