International Family Retreat China*Dates are Tentative.

People affected by disability in China have very few options for education or employment. Although loved by their parents, their opportunities for social interaction or spiritual nurturing are very limited. Joni and Friends works especially with the poor in rural communities in China getting for people with disabilities out of the back rooms of their homes, into the community, and blesses them with the love, dignity and value they deserve as a person made in the image of God!

Join us to live out Nehemiah 8:10, the joy of the Lord is my strength, in Zhenjiang, China. Each child with disability is paired up with a buddy and participates in a VBS-style children's program. Parents are affirmed and receive much needed respite. During small group discussions, they are able to listen and encourage one another. They are led to God's word so they can gain a biblical perspective on God's purpose for disability and their family.

We need you to help equip and train our friends in Zhenjiang, so they can lead future Family Retreats. You too can share in this life-transforming outreach. Join us as we embody the Gospel message of hope at the Zhenjiang Family Retreat. Here, disability experts and seasoned Family Retreat STMs can come alongside local volunteers. There are a lot of ways to engage in cross-cultural ministry - in children, youth and adult programs.

This is a barrier free outreach. All training and airfare is provided.
