Psalm 126:3As I look back on 2015, I am so grateful for God’s abundant blessings — blessings like the stamina to have been “on the road” 102 days this year, where I had the privilege of joining Pastor Chuck Swindoll for a Sunday service interview; speaking before international disability leaders at our Joni and Friends Global Access Conference; and attending our wonderful Family Retreat in Texas. Plus, the blessing of having recorded over 8,000 radio programs after 33 years on the air! Not to mention the opportunity to have written on important issues, such as the dangerous right-to-die bill in California. And of course, I praise the Lord for having been declared cancer-free! Wow, what an amazing year it has been! It’s why I want to be like the tenth leper in Luke 17, who came back to Jesus with loud praise, thanking Him for what He had done. Will you join me...

Joni, Annette, and StormiI am SUCH a big advocate of young people with disabilities who want to serve in our Cause 4 Life internship program. It’s why I was so excited to meet Stormi, and her mother Annette. They came by the International Disability Center to register Stormi in our Cause 4 Life Global Missions internship program – it means Stormi will be traveling to Uganda with us in 2016! I told her, “It is so important for Ugandans with disabilities to see you in a position of leadership, Stormi. It speaks volumes to them about their own potential to lead and serve in their own countries!” Whether you have a disability or not, consider serving as an intern with us in 2016 – get all the details here.
