Eli Reimer has Down syndrome. He’s already an amazing teen, but he accomplished something most adults can only dream of: two years ago, at the age of 15, Eli climbed Mount Everest! This young man walked 17,600 feet up the side of...

Doors for the Gospel are opening up in Cuba as never before. This brief video of our recent Wheels for the World distribution in Cuba was broadcast on Cuban National Television – they even mentioned that Joni and Friends is a Christian ministry. I'm so grateful to God that we can not only deliver wheelchairs in Cuba, but distribute Bibles and introduce special-needs families to Jesus Christ! Even if you don't know...

Our busy season of Family Retreats is right around the corner, and with so many new special-needs families signing up, we are in need of more volunteers, or Short-Term Missionaries (STMs) as we like to call them. We have a big need for men – many of our campers are young boys or teens with disabilities. My friend Jason volunteered for the first time last summer and LOVED it – take a look at his brief message, then get all the details for serving at Family Retreats here!

X-ray of a human skeletonAlmost every month, there seem to be new advancements in spinal cord injury cure/treatment. A man with a completely severed spinal cord has walked again with the help of some cells from his nose. After a knife attack, Darek Fidyka, a 38-year-old Bulgarian, was paralyzed from the chest down for four years. Scientists from Britain and Poland took stem cells from his nasal passages, transplanted them into his back and 're-grew'...

Caleb BundyFor parents Steve and Melissa Bundy, parenting their teenage son Caleb who has autism is not easy. Because Caleb is nonverbal, his parents must communicate with him through a picture communication board. A simple trip to the grocery store may require the assistance of therapist — not to mention a lot of prayer for Caleb to remain calm during the shopping trip. And then there are the unwelcome stares and comments: people referring to Caleb as “retarded” or criticizing Melissa’s parenting. But Caleb does not have mental delays; rather, Caleb learns differently. And Melissa and Steve love and care for their children with all their heart...

Dear Future Mom...When an expectant mother hears the words "Your child may have Down syndrome," her heart and mind are flooded with thoughts and emotions … Thoughts such as, "Will my child live?" or "How are we going to care for a special needs child?" But the one question just about any expectant mother of a child with Down syndrome will ask is, "What kind of life will my child have?" Clouded by fears of the unknown, cultural stigma, and family pressures, many mothers struggle to make...

Christmas… the season for pie baking, gift shopping, tree decorating, and ice-skating. But what if your arthritic hands can no longer detangle Christmas lights? What if your paralyzed legs restrain you from skating on ice? Or your aging eyes can no longer read your classic family recipe? If this Christmas, you find yourself wishing you could do more or have more, you’re not alone. When Joni was first injured, she wrestled with many of these real, day-to-day struggles of being disabled over the holidays. But friend, you don’t have to be in a wheelchair to feel like you’re missing out during the Christmas season. With Christmas sales galore, holiday parties everywhere, and family photos that look like they’re straight out of Parents Magazine … it’s easy to feel left out. It’s why Joni would like to share with you how, rather than focusing on what you don’t have, you can focus on all that God has given you this Christmas: His precious Son, Jesus. So, take a moment to watch this short, Christmas video greeting from Joni and then, share it...
