A group of volunteers praying over a newly constructed accessibility ramp“It was the best outreach into Peru we’ve had to date!” John Wern, special projects director, said when he recently returned from Peru where he led a Joni and Friends’ Total Access team. What is Total Access? There exists a critical lack of access for people with disabilities in developing nations, so we put together small teams of construction professionals (who often labor alongside our Wheels for the World teams) to build ramps and widen doorways, etc. – it's a very practical way to demonstrate the love of Christ. While in Peru, our Total Access workers built 8 ramps in 4 days in preparation for our International Family Retreat to be held in Peru this coming April. Twelve Peruvian military personnel from worked side-by-side with our team, during which time they heard the Good News of Jesus and accepted Christ as Savior. Are you handy with tools? Consider serving with us through Total Access.
