Joni, Ken, and the Buursma FamilyAbby

See the cute little blonde sitting on my knee? That’s Abigail Buursma, along with her family at a Joni and Friends Family Retreat (her handsome brother, Paul, is the kid in the chair :-). I’m guessing this photo was taken in the late 1990s and, since then, Abby has grown leaps and bounds. She recently graduated from Calvin College, and is now serving as our project coordinator for Joni and Friends Chicago. This young woman knows Family Retreats like the back of her hand, and I’m thrilled she’ll be supporting our JAF Family Retreat at Maranatha Conference Center this summer! Visit the Joni and Friends Chicago page to learn more about the retreat. While you’re there, post a comment to Abby, welcoming her aboard (there’s even a recent photo of Paul, all grown up with his mom and dad).
