IFR ChinaI just finished reading the exciting reports from our recent International Family Retreat in Shenyang, China – 26 special-needs families were served by a dynamic group of Christian volunteers from the US and the People's Republic of China. This photo really captures the joy of these young people (notice their T-shirts; it's the same "Press On" theme we used at this summer's US Family Retreats). One US volunteer wrote, "Family Retreat in China is awesome! I can't wait to go back next year and help more!" Our efforts were supported by a local Chinese church who came alongside to provide help with evangelism, training, and logistics. We're thrilled that 4 mothers of disabled children accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (and are being followed up by the Christian special-needs moms in the same local church). Picture yourself serving at one of our International Family Retreats in 2014… pray about it and get involved!
