How much does it take you to get a kid to smile? Usually, it’s just a funny face or a promise to pick up some ice cream after school, but when it came to Katherine, getting this teenager with autism and developmental delays to smile was a challenge. It’s why our volunteers at Family Retreat made an effort to get to know Katherine (her likes and dislikes, her specific needs) — because we know that helping a family with special needs requires a big heart of service. And it’s we’re asking you to join us as we serve these families by signing up as a short-term missionary (volunteer) for our Family Retreats … So, did Katherine ever smile? Look for yourself with this short video taken from our TV episode, “Katherine’s Smile.”
