Joni’s Ministry to those in Wheelchairs

No one is better able to minister to those who are paralyzed and confined to wheelchairs than Joni Eareckson Tada! I’ve told Joni, “You don’t even have to speak. All you’ve gotta do is roll your wheelchair up to the microphone and sit and smile and you minister.” And everywhere she ministers, the place is full of people in wheelchairs. Why? Because she’s in one. And no one is better able to help comfort those in wheelchairs than some one who has been there or is there. (Swindoll’s Ultimate Book of Illustrations & Quotes, p. 108).
