For over 20 years, Wheels for the World has supplied over 20,000 wheelchairs to the disabled in 23 countries! Wheels for the World is a ministry outreach of Joni & Friends Disability Center. Joni & Friends is one of the world's largest organizations dedicated to reaching people affected by disabilities.

In developing nations like Ghana or Honduras, the cost of a wheelchair is equal to a year's salary. The wheelchairs collected through WIHS will be refurbished in Connecticut before being shipped overseas. Then, they will be distributed by the Joni & Friends Wheels for the World teams to children and adults with disabilities.

WIHS Deck Repairs Completed!

Over many years of being in New England weather, the deck off the south side of WIHS had fallen into disrepair and become unsafe. Last fall, WIHS Property Manager, Ray Bennett and members of his family went to work removing damaged planks from the deck and replacing them with brand new pressure treated wood. Likewise, railing caps were replaced with pressure treated wood. Changes were also made to the staircase so that it now sits securely on the concrete pad beneath it. In the late Spring, Ray applied a fresh coat of stain to the entire structure. Look at the pictures of the deck to see the completed work and impressive transformation!

We are most thankful that the project was underwritten through a gift from a listener on Long Island!

We give God the glory for providing the funds and skilled workers to complete the deck repairs.

Before During After

Sponsor A Day Of Broadcasting On WIHS in 2016

When you sponsor a day of broadcasting on WIHS you'll not only help to advance the Lord's work through Connecticut's only Live and Local Christian radio station, but also can recognize someone special in your life or a milestone event.

Here's how it works:

Sponsoring A Day Of Broadcasting is a single event which must be paid in full prior to the air date. It may not be done in conjunction with your monthly or Faith Promise giving to WIHS.

WIHS Promotional Materials

EASY ways to share your faith: using WIHS Promotional Materials!

A listener from New Britain writes "I proudly display my WIHS bumper sticker so that people will tune in..."

New Haven writes "...I've been a listener for about 32 years... I share "Invitation to Listen" cards and other materials from the station to encourage others!"

Praise God! WIHS does not use the precious resources that listeners entrust to us to advertise... Since 1969, WIHS has relied on our listeners to tell others about this powerful radio ministry!

Think about it - how did you first come to find out about WIHS? Was it word of mouth or through WIHS promotional materials?

By displaying WIHS bumper stickers or window decals, and by using and distributing WIHS invitation to listen cards and pens YOU are helping to promote WIHS, which is ultimately promoting Jesus Christ as Lord!

Visit this link on the WIHS website: http://www.wihsradio.org/request_material.php to get your FREE witnessing materials!!

The Bible says "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so..."!! So if YOU have been blessed by WIHS, start telling others!!

Be like this listener from Middlefield who shares "Please send window decals so that I may witness for you and all that you do in our area and for Christ..."
