Wheelchairs of Hope: A Quick Look at 2015

Wheelchairs of Hope sent two 20 foot containers last year.  One to a partner in the Philippines and one to Thailand.  Mary Esther also made trips to Myanmar and Cambodia to visit partners.  Our prayer requests for this next year is that God will open doors for us to send a container to Cambodia Ministries for Christ and that more project volunteers here in Japan will make decisions to become followers of Jesus.  These are both big challenges.  The Cambodian system is fraught with corruption and so it was a wonderful surprise and an unexpected answer to prayer when Mrs. Abe, Japan’s Prime Minister’s wife, came by to visit and picked up four wheelchairs to take with her to Cambodia for us, and of course she cleared customs without any trouble!  God answers in amazing ways.

Just the other day, the volunteers in Japan celebrated another milestone—they finished cleaning and preparing the 2,000th wheelchair. As most of the volunteers are not-yet-Christians, pray that many will be drawn to Christ and be able to celebrate a whole new kind of milestone—the eternal kind

With Thanksgiving for His Glory,

Mark and Mary Esther

    Hi Mark and Mary Esther, I am so glad to get your updates again! Thank you. It looks like I got two of them, both to me Asian Access address. I will be in Tokyo 2/22 for JEMA meetings. If you have time to get together for coffee Monday morning, that would be great.
