Isaac needs your help!!
As many of you know we have been trying to raise money for an all-terrain wheel chair for Isaac. The chair we are looking at is an Action Track Chair. You can see the chair by clicking on this link www.actiontrackchair.com.
The cost of this chair is right at $17,000 and none of it is covered by insurance. This awesome chair allows Isaac to sit or stand depending on the activity that he would be involved in so he can be included in everything that we do outside.
This past summer we had the opportunity to let Isaac try one of these chairs. A picture of this is attached below. The thrilled look on his face is all it took for us to know that this is the answer we have been looking for. This chair will enable Isaac to get back outside doing all the things he loved, even being able to play in the snow or go exploring in the woods!
We have been approached by a friend, who told us that God had laid it on his heart to help in this endeavor. He asked to remain anonymous, and has offered to match all donations made within the next month! He has issued a challenge for us to raise $10,000!
So here we go! Can we work together to spread the word to all our friends, families, churches, businesses and anyone else we can think of to raise the money for Isaacs Action Track Chair? Isaac thinks we can! There will also be a gift donated by the anonymous donor of $100, $150 and $200 to the three people, teams or organizations that raise the most money!
God is good and Isaac is excited!!

Last month, our travel schedule was so heavy that we spent only a few nights at home. That is not so unusual, but it seems the schedule is heavier than usual. Tonight, I am writing from the seventh floor of a hotel in Nassau, Bahamas, with everything packed and ready to fly home tomorrow. My body is tired m: my spirit is stirred. Not long ago, someone asked me, “why do you keep going like you do? If you don’t slow down you are going to wear out.” Its really simple.
I have only a short time of influence left in this world and I want to make a difference. As we rode the bus to downtown Nassau yesterday, the girl with her young child in the next seat couldn’t have been more than 13-years-old. I witnessed to one of the vendors on the street corner about the Lord’s goodness. Later that day, she actually came and found me to tell me that someone had prayed for her, and told her exactly what I had, and she was making plans to be baptized.
In the hotel lobby, it was a kind word to a man who look as if he’d lost his last, best friend.
Last week it was another lost soul looking for some hope in life. As I testified of God’s goodness, I wondered how all these people will be reached. My mind goes to the Scripture.
“Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” (John 4:34-35)
I go because I can’t stop…I won’t stop…my time is limited and the harvest is ready to be reaped. I pray for the Lord to send help…but I can’t wait till they get here…there is work to be done…won’t you join me?
