Chairs Flying Out

Thank you for praying. God’s answers once again amaze us.    


An airline flying out of Tokyo airport (on which we hoped to send 12 wheelchairs) has a new manager.  Last week, a person from Wheelchairs of Hope called him regarding the chairs, and during the conversation they discovered he is friends with two of the caller’s sister-in-laws!  He ended the phone conversation with “is there anything else I can do for you?”  And yes, we were able to send all 12 chairs. Thanks for your prayers.


I once read that every year more Japanese become Christians outside of Japan than inside Japan.  On Thursday a Japanese young man traveling to Bangkok for two months volunteered to take a wheelchair along.   Since the plane is arriving in the middle of the night the young man offered to hang onto the chair and deliver it later.  We’re glad, because this will give him more time to connect with the Japanese missionary in Bangkok receiving the chair. Please pray that God will be glorified in this encounter.
