Families affected by disability living in under-resourced countries face many challenges. Because of disability, these families are often marginalized within their own cultures. Education and health services are extremely limited. Impoverished living conditions can bring even greater difficulty.
Joni and Friends offers hope and help through International Family Retreats (IFR). In partnership with Christ-honoring churches in the local area, the Gospel message is shared and demonstrated! At International Family Retreat, families experience Christ-centered encouragement, acceptance, and friendship. Often for first time ever, parents and children who live with disability discover that God cherishes them!
You can be a part of this one-of-a-kind global ministry. As a Short Term Missionary (STM), you’ll demonstrate Christ’s love as you serve a special needs family at an International Family Retreat. To find out more, explore “Volunteer to Serve” (below).
