Joni comments on Drop BoxKen and I are hearing a lot of ‘chatter’ at NRB about the new film Drop Box – it is an extraordinary documentary filmed by Brian Ivie that depicts the ministry of Pastor Lee in South Korea. Pastor Lee rescues abandoned infants, and many of them have disabilities. His is an amazing work which has gained global attention. A few weeks ago, Pastor Lee visited the International Disability Center (pictured from the left are his...

NRB ConventionAll this week Ken and I are at the NRB Convention in Nashville, TN – it is our one chance to meet personally with the many managers of Christian radio stations who air "Joni and Friends.” There are a lot of Christian programmers who are competing for air time on radio stations, so we are very grateful for the generous station managers who provide time to us per gratis. And don’t forget, you can always listen in to...

Joni and Mama LynnLast year I met this remarkable missionary, Mama Lynn, who devotes her life to rescuing children with disabilities in Tanzania – we were able to provide several wheelchairs for her disabled boys and girls. The plight of disabled children in East Africa is desperate – many boys and girls with disabilities are discarded, abandoned or abused. Just having Mama Lynn attend GA 2015 is so inspiring – other attendees from around the world hear her story, they share theirs, and Christ-exalting encouragement spreads like wildfire! Pray for the hundreds of attendees, like her, who will be...

He will explain Jesus' mandate to go out, find the disabled, and bring them in, so that the Father’s house might be full. Knowing his close relationship with Ryan, I am certain that Doug will be sharing from his heart – pray that all the conference...
