It has not been easy with many people this season, with COVID induced isolations and restrictions. But on top of that first-time Visionathon giver Joan and her husband had to go through some major life changes. Vision has been a lifeline. Joan shares with Robbo, Becci and Phil on Visionathon.
“My husband had to go into a nursing home. We had to sell our farm and I moved into a retirement village. So there’s been a lot of changes and our family. It was a big time of adjustment. So
Vision has been such a blessing, a lifesaver,
really over this time.
For company, because there’s been a lot of isolation as well. We’ll come up out of it, but I just wanted to thank you so much.
Just knowing what it’s like with isolation to have Vision there, that’s why we want to help to get more stations all over Australia.”
Amazing how Joan looked at helping others even in the midst of all that is going on in her life. She is truly freely giving what she freely received. She is also exemplifying what the Bible instructs — to ‘look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.’ Philippians 2:4
As Becci put it, “you know you could have easily just gone on, ‘oh, I’ve got too much going on with all the different changes,’ but you stepped out and we really appreciate that. And first-time givers and I’m giving you the biggest ever radio cuddle and if I saw you in person, I’d give you an even bigger one.”
We would want to give you a cuddle too, Joan. And pray for God to guide and comfort you in your transitional time.
Thank you for partnering together to change and direct lives into God’s purposes!
Please believe together with us for a revival in the heart of every Australian.
