I left feeling very encouraged that the Lord is raising up like-minded people in many different places to champion the development of mental health inclusion ministry as he is doing for special needs ministry.

Prayerfully consider if Jesus isn’t asking you to step up and reach out to the ones who can’t reach out for themselves.
