Family Retreat attendee and STM with Ken and JoniThe success of any Joni and Friends Family Retreat depends largely on having enough 'helping hands' to serve the special-needs families who attend. This year, most of our Family Retreats filled up very quickly with families – but we do not have enough 'short-term missionaries' (STMs) to help them. In fact, several of our retreats are in serious need of STMs! If the Holy Spirit is prompting you to come and volunteer, consider coming to these retreats that have the greatest need of your help – and thank you for serving Jesus by ministering to these families!

I grew up hearing Joni's story of inspiration. Never had the honor of meeting her, though. If I am able to get the time off, I would love to volunteer in Flat Rock, NC., Aug. 12th-Aug. 16th, 2013. May G-d give you wisdom and discernment as you plan each camping experience.
