Mikayla Scales the Climbing Wall at Family Retreat! “There’s something at Family Retreat you can’t get anyplace else,” says Wanda Robinson, mom of 13-year old Mikayla, who uses prosthetic legs. “It’s God’s peace reviving my spirit and inspiring me to continue. It’s a place of safety and unconditional love.” “We’ve tried other camps,” says dad, Michael. “But the only thing Mikayla got to do was crafts—while the other kids did outdoor stuff.” Not at Joni and Friends Family Retreat! “This week I’m climbing the rock wall, zip-lining, paintballing, and MORE!” says Mikayla. For Mikayla, being a teenager with a disability is an uphill climb. People stare. Even her friends don’t understand how hard it is for her to keep up with them. But it’s different at Family Retreat. “I don’t feel alone anymore,” says Mikayla. “Family Retreat gives me more confidence to go back out in the world and be strong in Jesus!” Thank you for sending special needs families to Family Retreat, where barriers are broken and Jesus Christ fills thirsty hearts with strength, healing, connection and hope!
