When Jesus comes upon a blind man in John chapter 9, His disciples ask Jesus who sinned to cause this man to be born disabled. But Jesus tells us that a disability is not the result of someone’s sin; rather, it is an opportunity for God's work to be revealed. According to the United Nations, roughly 15 percent of the world’s population — an estimated one billion people — live with some sort of disability. That means that the world is overflowing with opportunities for God’s work to be revealed, and our missionaries have taken front row seats. From a ministry to disabled refugees who have fled the war in eastern Ukraine to a school for disabled children in South Africa, this issue highlights the amazing ways God is revealing His love through people with disabilities.
