Middlefield – On Saturday Aug. 27, 2011, the Sparrow Christian Bookshop in Middlefield will be collecting manual wheelchairs, canes, crutches, and walkers for the Joni and Friend’s, Wheelchairs for the World program, between the hours of 9 a.m. 2 p.m. Since 1994, the Wheels for the World ministry has presented the Gospel by delivering wheelchairs and Bibles in developing countries. But Wheels for the World is not simply about “dropping off a wheelchair”. It’s about changing the hearts, minds, and lives of people. It’s about transforming societies, village by village, person by person. Each piece of equipment will be restored and given to people in need in developing nations.
Wheels for the World shares the love of Jesus Christ extended through the gift of mobility by bringing hope, joy and salvation to children and adults with disabilities around the world.
Sparrow Christian Bookshop is located at the intersection of Routes 608 and 87. Store hours are Monday – Thursday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday 9 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. www.sparrowchristian.com
