Cause 4 Life interns in ChinaCause 4 Life interns in China

Recently a group of our Cause 4 Life interns traveled to China to serve in several orphanages for disabled children – it was a great chance for these young autism specialists, OT and PT and Special Ed students to exercise their gifts and expertise with the staff and children. Kelly, the leader, wrote, "It is a joy to watch the younger girls step into their callings and giftings – we helped evaluate the children, modify their curriculum, and even make way for three disabled kids to attend school (not to mention other jobs)!" It's all about representing Jesus Christ where His name is either not known or rarely spoken. If you are studying toward a disability major, consider serving with us as a Cause 4 Life intern in 2014 – we will be posting the 2014 schedule on our website next month.

we are in the process of adopting for the second time, an orphan in China with special needs. our son who is 9 came home with us at the end of Feb. and has moderate to severe scoliosis and still looking at issues. our daughter who is 13 right now, has mild cp and delayed learning that places her at 5-6 years old. we have seen that with our son, having the needs that he has, has been something that strengthens our relationship. He has to attach to us because he needs us to help him with stairs, into the car, etc. What has been a weakness is a gift that God is using in all our lives to bring us closer to each other than maybe we would have otherwise. we are praying for our daughter as we look to go to China by January to adopt her. liked seeing this article!

As mother of a disabled child, who has been afforded wonderful schooling and opportunities during her 21 years, I am humbled by (sadly) knowing that in other countries, the disabled are not as blessed with resources. But Praise God for Joni and Friends and for the wonderful students that go minister in His name to these beautiful children.
