Ministry in Germany

David Wessler, Director
Joyce Meyer Ministries Germany Office

Joyce Meyer Ministries recently began supporting Stadtinsel, a ministry in the city of Hamburg, Germany that reaches out to refugees from the area and surrounding countries who have escaped wars, poverty and religious persecution.

Nine year old Fazan is a typical child that Stadtinsel helps. He left Afghanistan with a relative (pictured above). His parents also wanted to leave the country but were not able to. So Fazan is now in Germany, cannot speak the language and is missing his parents. He doesn’t know whether he will ever see them again.

“We would like to create reliable and trustworthy ‘islands’ for children and their families in Hamburg. People are offered support and practical assistance such as food and clothing and can experience what the Christian faith is all about,” says Ulf Bastian the leader of Stadtinsel. “Thanks to Joyce Meyer Ministries and their partners for helping us to help these people.”
