It’s just a coincidence that Good Friday and Earth Day occurred on the same day this year, but what a wonderful coincidence it is! Earth Day is really about redeeming the planet from the irresponsible ways we have lived upon it since the Industrial Revolution. Good Friday is really about God redeeming mankind from the irresponsible ways we have lived our lives ever since good old Adam and Eve messed up and sent us spiraling out of control from The Garden.

It’s “funny” that some folks look at Jesus as a victim on Good Friday, since he clearly knew what he was getting in to and came to Earth exactly for the purpose that was activated when he was crucified. Of course, Easter makes it all clear that he knew just what he was doing and that God had the power to raise him even from death. Hallelujah!

Wheels of Hope is also about redemption – redeeming the lives of the unfortunate in developing nations by supplying them with wheelchair donations and other mobility aids. Please consider helping us at this very special, very powerful time of the year. We are always looking for volunteers, financial contributions, wheelchair donations, as well as your prayers that God will continue to bless our efforts and this wheelchair ministry.

Happy “Resurrection Day” every day to you from Wheels of Hope!!!


In the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew testament, God walks with Adam in the Garden and gives him and Eve dominion over the land, asking them to take care of….well, the whole planet basically. Since that time, humans have done good at points and done bad at points when it comes to gratefully and reverently caring for the world that was given to us.

“Reduce, Reuse, Recyle” has become the most current slogan for getting folks to consider their consumptive habits as humans, and while “recycle” seems to be the action most folks are paying attention to in that exhortation, “reuse” is a powerful action verb too.

When it comes to Wheels of Hope, we’re all about “reuse.”  Our mission of seeking wheelchair donations, repairing those wheelchairs, and then distributing them to the needy in third world countries as part of the bigger picture of showing them the love of Jesus, truly encapsulates that second “R” – Reuse – and adds a fourth “R” as well….Redemption. Those who donate to Wheels of Hope are helping to redeem the lives of the poor and broken in faraway places, as well as introducing them to the King of Kings who can truly redeem them in this life and for all eternity.

Won’t you join us in spreading the 4 “R”s with a support donation sometime soon? We know quite a few needy people who’ll never get the chance to meet you in this world, but will be grateful for the rest of their days for your help.
