Your Service Strengthens Families through Christ! Mackenzie White heard about serving as a Short-Term Missionary (STM) at Family Retreat through her local church. “I thought it sounded like a great experience and looked forward to meeting my camper and family,” she told us. That was a couple years ago. Now she’s back again to serve and share the love of Jesus with families affected by disability.

When families come to Family Retreat, they enjoy opportunities to bond with each other, rest, receive spiritual renewal, and build lasting memories. The demands of disability back at home can be overwhelming. Because of selfless volunteers like Mackenzie, families can look forward to this time of rejuvenation and spiritual healing that may be difficult to come by at home, where disability demands never-ending attention.

When the end of the week came, Mackenzie was sad because she didn’t want to leave! Mackenzie told us, “The families here really embrace you as one of their own.” Do you want to serve at Family Retreats next summer? Don’t miss out! Consider volunteering with Joni and Friends. Mackenzie agrees, “Go! Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. I guarantee you won’t regret it.”
