Ken, Gwen and Joni

Thirty-one-year-old Gwen Thayer first learned about our Cause 4 Life internships while attending our Castaway Club Family Retreat in Minnesota — living on a farm, Gwen was anxious to come to Southern California and learn “the ropes” of disability ministry here at our International Disability Center. Her two-month internship is coming to a close and, oh, what a help she has been with our Christian Institute on Disability. Gwen has been battling various cancers ever since she was four years old (which explains her small frame); nevertheless, her courageous outlook on life and her indomitable faith in Christ are an inspiration to us all. We will miss you, Gwen!

Gwen, my cousin, has been inspiring me for the past 26 years as she has courageously battled disease with Christ as her Shepherd through every valley and mountaintop. So happy she has been able to bless and inspire you all as well!
