We want to thank you so much for the wonderful Joyce Meyer booklets in French! We have distributed many of them and saw that the people brought them back to church with them and held onto them like Bibles. It was so touching.  


We are also grateful for your sponsorship of a container of food each month. There aren't enough words to say thank you, especially as we look into the faces of the people when they receive the food.

The clinic is going strong and we are discovering that people are coming from Port au Prince and places even further to receive aid. Recently we found a baby in a village who had a severe burn on his arm. We brought him to the clinic for several treatments and know that he probably wouldn't have survived without medical care.

We know that the partners of Joyce Meyer Ministries would be so blessed to see the fruit of their giving! God is good.

David and Shelly Meyer along with some of A21 team members.

David L. Meyer

We have partnered with A21 in Greece for almost 18 months now. Recently we had the privilege to visit them. A21 works to stop the flow of trafficked girls as well as bring restoration to those that escape the system. What happens to these girls is unimaginable. There are over 27 million people worldwide who are being held as slaves against their own will. We also sponsor projects in Ethiopia and India. Please pray that more and more of those held captive will be delivered from this horror.

Jawad's story is similar to many of the Iraqis who left Iraq due to threats and persecution. Jawad and his family lived in Iraq in an area where the situation was highly critical. Sounds of bomb explosions rang in their ears as the hands of the clock ticked by the minute. They were terrified and left when threats got closer and more personal. Jawad and his wife Wala’ feared for the lives and safety of their children and took a few pieces of clothing and some food and fled Iraq.

Today, it's a little over three months since they came to Lebanon. Jawad works as a porter where he returns home every day exhausted, yet thankful for the $10 he earns to cover part of their daily living expenses. The house they live in is very cold and is poorly furnished. They are encouraged by Heart for Lebanon’s visits that show them the love and compassion of Christ. Joyce Meyer Ministries supports Heart for Lebanon’s ministry as they reach out to the needy in that country. Thank you Hand of Hope for helping this family.

Unconditional Love: Those are the words that come to mind as we witnessed the love being poured out to the kids on the streets of Durban, South Africa. The team from Umthombo, a ministry that Joyce Meyer Ministries supports, is doing a great job of engaging these young kids that society considers useless. These precious children have found themselves on the streets for various reasons and just want to be loved and accepted. Their daily battle is simply one of survival. Through various activities and outreaches we are endeavoring to reach these kids in order to reunite them with their families and get them away from the dangers of the streets. Already this year we have reunited over 140 children with their families, treated more than 330 through our medical outreach and feed over 125 kids every day! What makes this type of ministry effective? Unconditional love!
