Joni and Friends has always had a strong place in my heart. Their YouTube channel has always had a strong emphasis in Scripture and church doctrine while focusing on compassion and to engaged those who may need our support. They have a new campaign that was just announced this month called “Until His House Is Full” that looks to support not only those domestically in the United States, but around the world who have disabilities and need the Gospel.
Here is their mission with this campaign:
In El Salvador, nearly 1 in 10 people live with a disability. Their challenges are exacerbated by unemployment, lack of services, poverty, and crime. For families like Levi’s, getting access to medical care and a desperately needed wheelchair is almost impossible.
At Joni and Friends, our biblical commission from Luke 14 tells us to go out quickly into the streets and the alleys and bring in people living with disability so that God’s house will be full. As we share the good news of Jesus, we provide wheelchairs and essential support where it’s otherwise unaffordable or unavailable.
I previously talked about our purpose as a ministry to go serve those who are hurting and in need. So of course this fits within our mission.
The video that kicks off the initiative is below, it is impactful and commanding, but with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and a New Year coming up, it makes sense to do nothing else but highlight this.
