“I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.”
Acts 20:24 is a powerful reminder to God’s people. In fact, this verse exemplifies the life and focused commitment of Joni Eareckson Tada to do all that she can to ensure that every person with a disability finds hope, dignity, and their place in the body of Christ.
William James said, “The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.”
For more than 40 years, Joni and Friends has been focused on communicating the Gospel and mobilizing the global church to evangelize, disciple, and serve people living with disability. Joni’s story, her faithfulness to Jesus, and her commitment to the Kingdom mission of Joni and Friends is the greatest legacy that she can leave to her friends … friends just like you.
Have you thought about the legacy you will leave?
Billy Graham once said, “Our days are numbered … and the legacy we leave is not just in possessions, but in the quality of our lives.” How will you be remembered? Have you taken the time to think about that?
The tumultuous events of the COVID-19 pandemic brought significant loss to many people worldwide, and new levels of hopelessness, hardship, and isolation surfaced amongst the world’s one billion plus people impacted by disability. And disability within families is on the increase.
Now, more than ever, the world needs the life-giving hope of Jesus!
That’s why the mission of Joni and Friends is so vitally important to future generations. We’ve heard from a number of friends like you who also want to invest in the mission of Joni and Friends through their legacy.
