Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Mariyka is a young adult from Ukraine, who was born with cerebral palsy – she grew up in a home with alcoholic parents and for many years struggled with feelings of loneliness. That is until she came to one of our International Family Retreats. There she heard about Jesus for the first time—about how He loves and cares for her. Mariyka’s life was turned around! And now? She attends an evangelical church and has a new family in Christ. She loves Romans chapter 8 where it says that although the children of God suffer; we suffer with Christ—and with Him, Marika is never alone. There are so many people like this woman with cerebral palsy; they live in Thailand, Guatemala, Ghana, Cuba … And they need your help. So, log on to joniandfriends.org and learn how you can join in on the ministry at our next International Family Retreat.
