Justin is a bright, happy young man who happens to have cerebral palsy. He also communicates using a board across his lap with symbols on it. Justin very much wanted to serve somehow in missions, and so his parents signed up to take him on a Wheels for the World trip. While his father helped with the wheelchairs, Justin and his mother spent time with the parents and their disabled children who were waiting for help. Many of them, like Justin, were non-verbal. And that’s when Justin and his mom decided to show his communication board to all the other mothers, and when those women saw that their children really could communicate, oh the tears and the joy. Justin’s parents made 28 communication boards that day for those kids. You can have a ministry like this among people with disabilities. Just visit joniandfriends.org for an opportunity where you, like Justin, can serve!
