Remember last year after Joni and Friends camp when I told you about the film crew that followed me? (It was Labor Day weekend, 2008.) Well, they finished up the tv episode and I got a copy of it this week. It was so fun to watch!
I have to say I definitely want you to go watch it. Because it's so hard to explain 5 days of fun, joy, excitement, exhaustion, victory, bonding, friendship..."little slice of heaven" in just a few paragraphs and now I have 28 minutes of live explanation! It's just such a great picture of how worthwhile it is to go to a Family Retreat, for volunteers and people affected by disability!
So please go watch it and show your friends! If you are not affected by disability, there is definitely a way you can serve at a family retreat, no matter who you are. If you are affected by disability in some way, you can attend this life changing event! There are family retreats all over the country from June to September, so there should be one available that you can get to. Please consider it! It will change your life for the better, I guarantee it.
Here is a direct link to the episode if you're interested!
(Here are my first and second posts with pics from the week this was filmed.)
