Cause 4 Life Global Missions and Internships

Let the statement sink in. Read it again… say it out loud. Why… Because it’s a call to the church, to the working professional, to the stay at home mom, to the college student, to the retired layman. No one can escape the command to “love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matt. 22:39) Yet so many times we make excuses. “I don’t know how to relate.” “Someone else will reach out to them.”

But what excuses will we lay at the Father’s feet when He’s asking how we loved the family with the boy with autism? What reason will we have for discouraging the young man with Down Syndrome to be a servant leader in his church? There will be none.

The interns that come through Joni and Friends come from all over the United States. They come from across our borders. They come with able and disabled bodies. They come with a passion for disability. But they all leave with the same thing, a call to love ALL people with the love of Christ. At this moment, there are over 50 interns preparing to join Cause 4 Life all over the world to impact the world of disability. They are speaking in their churches and schools, looking for encouragement and support from friends and family. God is specifically preparing each intern for the role they will play and the direction they will receive from their internship. It’s our joy to provide them with education and training that will encourage them in God’s direction for their lives. God’s sharpening his tools for disability ministry. Will you join us in prayer? Pray that funds will be provided for every need, eyes will be opened to disability ministry, and the interns’ hearts will be ready for all that God has in store.
