Wheels bring great joy in Ukraine

By December 22, 2009

Ukraine (MNN) — Ira is a 12-year-old girl in Ukraine. She
has lived with a disability affecting her legs and can't go to school.

When a Global Aid Network team, in partnership with Wheels for the World, was distributing wheelchairs
recently in her area, she came alone.  It
was clear that a wheelchair was the best solution to provide mobility for Ira.

Aside from from meeting the physical needs there, the teams
were also presenting the Gospel and distributing CarePacks and books. 

A CarePack demonstrates and expresses to the child who
receives it that God loves him or her individually. For children who have been
shuffled through orphanage institutions, these personal gifts make a tremendous
impact.

In addition, creating a CarePack can become a family affair,
teaching children the value of sharing the Gospel.  Pray that hearts will respond to the hope of Jesus
Christ.
