Chesterfield man, Tom Hardwick, from Holmebrook Valley Church has arrived in the USA to work and study with the organisation founded by Joni Eareckson Tada called 'Joni & Friends.'  Their mission is to take the gospel to those who live with a disability of some kind, people who in many cultures are considered as worthless and who are marginalised.  Their message is the good news of Jesus which is for everyone and the truth that God has a purpose and a plan for every life.
During his time there Tom will be acting as mentor to a person with a disability as well as receiving training.  He's planning to make good use of everything he has learned on his return to Chesterfield.
