Please meet the Joy to the World missionary team! Here is the entire team (about 25 of us). We had such a wonderful meeting today in which the new National Director (my Dad) reminded us of the vision of Joy to the World Ministries. He impressed upon us to care and be concerned about the spiritual well being of the people that we serve above everything else. We had a wonderful time of discussions as well as questions and answers. We laughed together, we sang together, we read and heard the Word of God together, we prayed together. We all walked away from the meeting deeply challenged and inspired to give our all - to do our very best in whatever department of the ministry entrusted to us.
At a personal level, I am deeply humbled and my heart is overflowing with great joy to be part of such a dedicated team of the Lord's humble servants. They each have unique gifts, talents and responsibilities. We all do our part - determined to give it our best - while at the same time trusting in the Lord who alone is able to give the increase. Indeed our prayer remains Psalm 90:17, "May the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!"
