For the next few days I'm blogging and tweeting from the 2009 Joni and Friends Family Retreat in Minnesota.
Right now, volunteers are gathering for orientation and training to be ready to be a help and blessing to the campers who will arrive tomorrow afternoon, families and individuals affected by disabilities.
We will be a total of 310 people, about equally divided between campers and volunteers.
Please pray today for the new volunteers who may feel nervous in this new sort of setting for them. Pray that God will use these hours of training to remind us of his power and goodness and good plans for his people.
