Joni, Annette, and StormiI am SUCH a big advocate of young people with disabilities who want to serve in our Cause 4 Life internship program. It’s why I was so excited to meet Stormi, and her mother Annette. They came by the International Disability Center to register Stormi in our Cause 4 Life Global Missions internship program – it means Stormi will be traveling to Uganda with us in 2016! I told her, “It is so important for Ugandans with disabilities to see you in a position of leadership, Stormi. It speaks volumes to them about their own potential to lead and serve in their own countries!” Whether you have a disability or not, consider serving as an intern with us in 2016 – get all the details here.
