cause 4 life internsMinistering among special-needs families is one of the most rewarding experiences you could possibly enjoy! It’s why we encourage you to consider signing up for one of our Cause 4 Life internships. There are lots of opportunities posted on our Cause 4 Life page, but we want to especially highlight our Cause 4 Life Missions and Ministry Academy this coming summer. MA is designed to energize a new generation of Christian leaders for global missions, social justice and advocacy on behalf of people affected by disability around the world. MMA is an eight-week internship that will truly change your life. You’ll experience classes and lectures with disability experts, hands-on service at the Joni and Friends International Disability Center, participating in local church ministries, serving at our southern California Joni and Friends’ Family Retreat and, finally, a disability-mission trip to Haiti. Scholarships are even available, so pray about joining us!

joni and ken at dallas theological seminaryWhen Joni recently spoke at Dallas Theological Seminary, the student response was amazing (Joni was at DTS to draw attention to the disability ministry class which our JAF Christian Institute on Disability helped design… she is pictured here with Prof. Daniel Thomson and Dr. Larry Waters, instructors). If you'd like to hear what energized these students, listen to her message. But don't just hear it; get on board doing it! Joni and Friends is currently registering interns for our Cause 4 Life Ministry and Missions Academy, an eight-week course from June 11-August 3 which includes classroom studies at the IDC, serving hands-on at our Southern California Family Retreat, and finally, traveling with us to Haiti to minister the love of Christ to those with disabilities. The purpose of Cause 4 Life is to equip today’s next-generation leaders for disability ministry, missions, and advocacy (scholarships available). Interested? Join us for eight weeks of intensive, soul-stirring, faith-stretching ministry to those who need Christ's love. Sign up today!

Having just completed our one-week intensive on disability ministry, these men and women are ready to “Go out, find the disabled, and bring them in so that the Father’s house will be full!” Lots is happening in Uganda – Wheels for the World outreaches, medical clinics, the construction of ramps, and many special needs families coming to Christ for the first time! And the future?...

2011 summer interns serving at murrieta family retreat

What a great group of summer interns we’ve enjoyed this month – these are the faces of the future when it comes to leaders in disability ministry. The first week of internship involved classroom study in our "Beyond Suffering" intensive; the second week, they happily rolled up their sleeves to serve at one of our Joni and Friends’ Family Retreats. These young women were so excited after their two-week internship, they are already planning to sign up for a Cause 4 Life global missions outreach next year. Watch out world! Want to join them?

In addition, our Wheels for the World team will be distributing Bibles and wheelchairs to more than 200 disabled children and adults, and giving the Gospel of Christ with every chair. Joni and Friends is also in El Salvador this week. Please pray that hearts will be opened to the salvation message.

meredith, joni and kenAll of us at the IDC agree – we love the fresh, young, eager faces (and passionate hearts) of our summer interns. Recently we enjoyed having Meredith who attends the University of Florida. Meredith will soon be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science – she’s also a Reitz Undergraduate Scholar! Because of her own cerebral palsy, this exceptional young woman with the great smile...

We received this e-mail from our Joni and Friends team serving this week in West Africa (where Islam is strong): "We just held our conference for 25 pastors representing 12 regions throughout this country. Here's a photo of the pastors studying Jesus' words in Luke 14 to 'Go out... find the disabled... and bring them in.' Mindsets are being changed!! The Spirit is convicting them to respond to the call!!" Join us in thanking God that the Gospel is making inroads deep into new and difficult territory, all for the praise of Jesus' name. Interested in serving God by helping people with disabilities overseas? Then sign up for one of our Cause4Life global internships!
