We thank God for going before us to serve the people of Kenya during our 3rd Wheels for Africa outreach. We had an opportunity to serve over 400 people with new mobility devices and we shared the Good News with them. What a humbling privilege to serve “the poor, the blind, the crippled” in Jesus’ Name!! We also had an incredible two-days Pastors’ training on disability and they all opened their hearts to go out and embrace people with disabilities.
I am so grateful for God’s timing and for the opportunity to distribute wheelchairs in Kenya before this pandemic. We saw many lives transformed before our eyes, and each story touched our hearts! I thank God for making this trip come to fruition and I am so grateful to our team for the incredible love shown to each person they came into contact with. One precious teacher told us that “ today was the first time her students felt Loved!” after a lifetime of being viewed as a curse. Those kids felt a sense of Hope in their lives and their Joy was just priceless.
My heart-felt thanks goes out to those who have supported us financially. We were able to pay for the shipment of wheelchair containers and purchase additional wheelchairs for children. I’m also grateful for those who donated supplies and all of you who prayed for us. Each one of you played a vital role in making this trip possible!!Read More

Here is a glimpse from my recent trip with JAF Wheels for the World in Peru where Michael served as Mechanic. The outreach was very impactful indeed..with so many incredible God’s moments. So many lives were touched, changed and some found NEW HOPE. Michael heart was filled with joy and so did some of the kids who received their first wheelchairs. The kids loved racing with Michael over and over again. And every time he felt tired, they said to me “Uno mas, por favor!!(one more time, please)” And they went again for 20 more rounds!! Michael was very thankful to God for the opportunity to serve alongside incredible God’s servants.Read More
