RBI PartnershipsIn the middle of the book of Mark, we join Jesus and His disciples in the midst of their successful and popular ministry. They are reaching large numbers of people with the Gospel. Suddenly, a blind man named Bartimaeus calls out to him, much to the disciple’s dismay. The leaders had much more important things to do and didn’t want to include Bartimaeus. They made the conscious decision to leave him behind. But Jesus made it clear that nobody was going anywhere unless Bartimaeus was included. He stopped the whole procession, called Bartimaeus to himself, and healed him on the spot. Jesus used this miracle to make sure that everyone understood that nobody gets sidelined or left behind.
Those who are visually impaired, in developing nations, continue to often be the outcasts in society. They many times do not have hope or a voice and have little chance to hear the Gospel. Currently there are millions of blind “Bartimaeus’” across this world that have never heard God’s Good News.
Reaching those who are visually impaired can be an elaborate ministry. Specialized training and services are needed in order for them to reach their fullest potential in life.
The vision of most Christian organizations, churches, and mission agencies is to reach everyone for the Kingdom—and Biblically so. But they also admit that many times, they lack the tools or understanding to reach certain demographics of society, including the visually impaired. That is where Resources for the Blind International, Inc. (RBII) can help you be able to truly reach the blind with the love of Christ.
We believe in the power and far-reaching impact of partnerships. RBII can provide your organization, church, or mission agency the expertise, training, and support to give you the tools and avenues to truly reach all for the Kingdom.
