Oh, we got a great, great show lined up for you today. So excited to share these guests with you as, wow, God just continues to provide people, give them really, really neat passions for the Kingdom. So first up, a new friend, Marty Hartman, who is with Free Wheelchair Mission, and they recently, and Marty himself is in a wheelchair.
He's in the studio with us. So welcome, Marty. Thank you. Good morning, everyone. Nice to be here today. Yeah, it's really great to have you. And so Free Wheelchair Mission, I'd actually never heard of it, but you guys are making wheelchairs for people all around the world.
Exactly. Actually, I am what they call an ambassador for Free Wheelchair Mission, and that basically means a highly trained volunteer for them. They are based out of Irvine, California, out on the West Coast. They've been in existence for 20 years. And they have sent wheelchairs all around the world, third world countries, where people do not have access to wheelchairs. They've helped 1.3 million people gain access to mobility through their organization.
They, even though they've been in existence for 20 years, they have very little presence on the East Coast. And that's what I'm trying to do, is raise awareness to the fact that they're out there, and that you can help provide a wheelchair for someone in need for as little as $96. Yeah, it's awesome. And we got, oh, we have stuff for you along those lines. But also, we have an old friend with us. My old friend, Captain Jim Kinney. For those of you long-truth listeners, you'll know Jack, you know, Jim had a actually inspiring night minute or something along like those, didn't you, Captain? I guess I better put him on the air, or otherwise we won't be able to hear him, Jim.
Yeah, I'm here. So what was it, was it called Inspiring Ignite, your old minute that you did? No, it was called Just a Thought. Oh, that's what it was. Yeah, it had the Boltons-May whistle. I remember. In fact, in fact, you're testing what it was, it saved your life for us, because you were falling asleep in the middle of the night. And the sheer whistle came on your radio and puts you right back to controlling your car again. I remember that.
That's right, when you hear the whistle, you couldn't help but wake up. That's right, that's right. But now you guys, you and Josh Tully have this new prayer app that's called Inspiring Ignite, right? Yes, Inspiring Ignite.
The 501c3 is Inspiring Ignite Us, and the website is inspiredignite.us. So, it's pretty easy to tie the two together. So you know we're going to have to do Robbie's riddles, and so I'm going to risk something, Carmen, that nobody would ever think that I would do but actually tell wheelchair jokes. So, speaking of wheelchairs. Now the fun begins, but now it's time to play shenanigans.
Alrighty. I feel like I need to take a little license here, Carmen, because I, at one point in time for around two years, I was in a wheelchair, so I can relate on a lot of levels. So, I've come up with, you're going to be excited about this, Marty, I've come up with a new slogan for free wheelchair mission. Are you ready for this? I'm ready. Are you ready, Carmen?
Yes, I'm ready. Alright, chairing is caring. There you go. Chairing, it's just sketchy, isn't it? I like that.
Chairing is caring. Do you like that, Jim? I love it. I love it. I've never heard of this ministry either.
I think that's pretty impressive, 1.3 million people. I had an aunt that was in a wheelchair, all of my memory of her from crippling arthritis. So, I have a full appreciation for that. So, you could actually say that free wheelchair mission is a great charity. Oh, you're on a roll now. Right.
It's definitely a great charity. And so, here's a really tough one for you, Marty. What do you call a wheelchair that's exceptionally good-looking and electric?
A Tesla. That would be cool, wouldn't it? How about you, Carmen? You want to try that one? I'm not sure.
You would call it Chairsmatic. That's good. Josh, did I hear you groaning there a little bit? Yeah. That's funny.
All right. So, with the idea of chairs, right, we got a pretty... I love my riddle today. So, if you can guess this, call in and win.
Carmen, here's the riddle. So, what is the first and best seat in the Bible? What is the first and best seat in the Bible? In fact, enjoy it and you will stand corrected. What is the first best seat in the Bible?
Enjoy it and you will stand corrected. 866-348-7884, 86634. Truth, call in. And Carmen, tell them what they'll win. They'll win one of our wonderful mystery prizes from the Canaan Pursuits Prize Vault. So, call in and let me know. 866-348...
