In the Fall 2017 Resurrection University Magazine an article about Alice Teisan and His Wheels International are featured. You can read it here.
Check out Alice’s Author Page where you will find her two books: Pray 10K How the Radical Can Become Real: A 10,000-Hour Prayer Adventure (2017) and Riding on Faith: Keeping Your Balance When the Wheels Fall Off (2012). Both books have His Wheels International weaved throughout the pages.
We are proud of the 4 Wheaton College students, Bradley, Michael, Noah, and Dean who came up with a dual gear system, a creative solution to a complex gear issue for hand-pedaled trikes. Below are a couple pages of their report. Clicking here you can read the complete final project.
His Wheels International’s December 2016, Update
In this issue Alice attempts to answer this question. “Where does His Wheels find their ministry contacts and partners?”
Christmas holds the mysterious answer to this question. If you want to know more, we encourage you to read the December newsletter 2016.
From the HWI team to your family we pray that as you ponder the mystery of the Christ Child this Christmas season you will be filled with blessing and hope.
Today I, Alice, from HWI met with Cara, who is part of Safari Seat, for an introductory meeting. Thanks to Skype I was able to be in my home in the USA and Cara in England. Through our discussion we discovered many common goals between our two organizations.
- Providing a mobility product for those with lower extremity disabilities.
- Helping to find ways for those in under developed parts of the world to be able to build the product.
- Providing the product design as an open source model.
It is encouraging and energizing to collaborate with those doing similar mobility development work who share some of the same goals. We look forward to continuing to build a development mobility collaboration, one connection at a time, sharing our resources, learning from each other, and working together.

Today HWI experienced the words written in a Christian worship song.”It only takes a spark to get a fire going.” One spark came in April as Alice spoke at a Lion’s Club meeting. Another spark came as one of the men attending runs weekly with a scholar from Haiti who has a heart for the disabled. The scholar has engineering in his background and realizes there is both the physical “light” needed along with sharing the spiritual “light.” Oh and how about all the prayers thatt HWI has prayed for a connection in Haiti after the earthquakes years ago. Well I’m not sure how God will use our divine encounter today in using transportation for transformation but we will watch and pray with great anticipation.
