A Life God Changed through You...

Genecis is a little girl with shining eyes filled with love. But she can’t express it. Born with cerebral palsy and a seizure disorder, Genecis has never spoken and cannot walk. But when she was lifted into a shiny new pediatric wheelchair, joy burst over her little face. That's when we introduced a communication board to Genecis’ mom, Luisa – she opened a book filled with simple signs that her daughter could point at to communicate her needs and thoughts (things like “eat,” “tired” “happy” “sleep”). Luisa and Genecis picked out their very own signs and a communication board was made. Seated in her new wheelchair with her brand new communication board on her lap table, little Genecis pointed her finger and searched for just the right picture to express herself for the first time. What did she say? “GRACIAS! GRACIAS! Over and over she pointed to the picture for “thank you,” her little face beaming. Because of God’s love working through you, Wheels for the World has given Genecis the priceless gift of mobility and the ability to express herself for the first time. Thank you for making it all possible through your gifts and prayers!

Thank you Joni and Friends. You do the difference for many people with disability. You bring the unique hope in Jesus. Thank you for the smile and expression of Genesis and her mother: Expression of God's grace..

Beautiful! So thankful for this ministry! I can't wait to donate my son's equipment when the time comes! Is it wheelchairs only? We could donate a gait trainer, stander, bath chair, and a communication device as he grows out of them etc.

What a moving, and super, story! I have seen many similar transformations of lives here in Bangalore, India through the partnership between Wheels for the World and ProVision Asia. Thank you all for the great work that you do over there in the US to get these wheelchairs to all corners of the world.

What a blessing. I have a daughter with CP as well but not as severe as Genecis (she uses a walker and fairly communicative). It brought tears to my eyes to hear that she would be given the gift of communication. Thank you for all you do for children with diabilities.

Genecis is a very special girl who God is blessing with a phenomenal ability to communicate her feelings of happiness and joy. What a beautiful, beaming, inspiring joyfulness she has!
