Justin and his family are ‘regulars’ at our Bonclarken Family Retreats led by our Joni and Friends/Charlotte team – Justin is non-verbal, but is exceptionally charismatic and smiles all the time. But their ministry extends beyond Family Retreats. Justin and his parents were part of our last Wheels for the World trip to the Dominican Republic. Dad came as a physician, and mom showed families how to make communication boards for their disabled children so they could ‘talk’ with them for the first time! And Justin? Well, he was the best ambassador for Christ, encouraging everyone with his smiles and high fives! Drop Justin a line on our blog!

Justin, It's so wonderful to see the Love of Jesus shining thru your "joyous smile". What a wonderful ministry that God is using you and your joy to encourage others in need. It reminds me of a song I sang in Sunday school "many" years ago...... "I have the joy joy joy joy down in my heart/down in my heart/down in my heart/ I have the joy joy joy joy down in my heart/down in my heart to stay. I have the peace that passes understanding down in my heart/down in my heart......" May God continue to bless you in your ministry for Him =)
