From the Heart

Joni and Ken

Not long ago, Ken and I went down to the Joni and Friends’ mail room to look at some of the Happy Grams our supporters sent in. (You may have written one, too.) When I read the messages, my heart was deeply moved. The hand-written words on each Happy Gram were filled with powerful hope and Christ-centered encouragement. And each is being hand-delivered to a weary special-needs family at our Family Retreats!

When the prophet wrote Isaiah 50:4, he was referring to you. God, the all-time great Encourager, takes great delight when you refresh the weary with words that uplift, inspire, and comfort. And it’s a good thing – the special-needs families receiving these Happy Grams are utterly exhausted from struggling with nonstop, 24/7 disability routines. But, oh, how blessed they are to read that someone cares and is praying for them!(I’ve watched families respond to these Happy Grams; they love the encouragement!)

So, thank you for caring and interceding for the moms and dads and disabled children who are attending Family Retreats this summer. You’ve added richness and meaning to their lives through Happy Grams – it costs no more than a bit of time and effort, yet it’s priceless. God bless you for giving the gift beyond all value – Jesus’ love!
