Building You Up: Understanding Disability Suffering and Challenges
My sister has a genetic disorder called Friedreich’s Ataxia which is neuro-muscular disease that attacks her nervous system affecting her coordination, balance, and motor skills. James Dykes is another such person who suffered from the same affliction. Here, in this video, he talks about his perspective on life and specifically life as a believer with ataxia.
Far too often we overlook this segment of the church and community for a wide variety of reasons such as our unchallenged acceptance of governmental programs which serve to undermine our responsibilities. I’d like to talk more in this blog medium about this topic but for now I invite you to watch this video.
Listen to James give testimony to the work of Christ in his life and be blessed. Be sobered up. Be tahankful. Be challenged.
In the year following the making of this speech James passed away and went to be with the Lord.
