It’s really the “and Friends” of Joni and Friends that makes such a big difference. 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. It’s really the “and Friends” of Joni and Friends that makes such a big difference. Friends like Michelle, a volunteer with our Knoxville team. Although Michelle has an intellectual disability, she loves the Lord and uses all of the gifts He’s given her to serve others. She does not let her impairment get in the way! Recently, she stopped by the Joni and Friends Knoxville office to stuff pamphlets for an upcoming conference. When she finished, she still had time before her next commitment. So, how did she choose to use those remaining minutes? She decided to pray out loud for each of the Family Retreat families by name! For her, prayer was the real work of the kingdom. What a servant’s heart. Oh friend, if you would like to find volunteer opportunities near you, visit joniandfriends.org. Get involved in serving just like my disabled friend Michelle.
