I LOVE FAMILY RETREAT! I really do — and I’m not the only one. Matthew is what we at Joni and Friends like to call a “Short Term Missionary” (STM) and he’s been serving at our Family Retreats for 9 years! So, why does Matthew keep on coming back, summer after summer, to serve families affected by disability? Because in Matthew’s words, “Family Retreat is where everyone is unconditionally loved for who they are and for the gifts and skills that God has given them.” Will you join Matthew and me in reaching out to special needs families with the unfailing love of Jesus? Checkout this video and then, sign up to volunteer this summer. Because I just bet, like Matthew, you too, will fall in love with Family Retreat!

Well done, Matthew! Excellent video. I completely echo your words as I have served two years at FR and plan to serve again this year at a Family Retreat in Alabama. It's the most challenging week of my life physically but also the most rewarding!! I wish everyone could have the privilege of serving at one.
