Jonesboro, AR-- Everyone is someone, and each person has a special gift, and that's just what the Broeffle's believe.
Central Baptist Church has a program for people with disabilities and handicaps of all sorts. The Directors of the program, the Broeffle's, know this first hand.
"We have two sons that are part of the group, and we know how much they want to be involved in the church."
The class involves singing, praise and worship, learning about God, and prayer request.
"They love to sing catchy songs, and they really like to be involved. Like we ask them what sin is, and they have the smartest answers."
Keith and his wife Johannah Broeffle say they are impressed everytime they meet by how much they improve and how much they are learning.
"We are working on a monitor system to the Sanctuary, and after they go through the course, and we think they can handle it, they will graduate to the big church."
They are fortunate enough to have their own door, parking lot, and bathroom.
"Patt is in a nursing home now, and she can't come as much as she would like to, so her husband who is eighty-years-old pays for an ambulance to pick her up and bring her to class. We are so fortunate to have her here."
A member of the class says her favorite part is when they get to lead a song, because she loves singing to Jesus.
They would like to put together a singing group and record an album.
