Author and disabilities advocate Joni Eareckson Tada has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently receiving monoclonal antibodies treatment, her ministry announced.
In a statement released Monday, Joni and Friends, an organization that accelerates Christian outreach in the disability community, revealed the 71-year-old Bible teacher tested positive for the virus after exhibiting “flu-like symptoms.” The ministry asked supporters to pray as Tada undergoes treatment.
“While we know this diagnosis has not taken Jesus by surprise, we are interceding for Joni’s health, strength, and confidence in God’s good purposes,” the update read. “We have seen God protect her from two bouts of cancer and we know he can do it again! Thank you for joining us in prayer!”
