Helping the Hurting during the World Cup

David L. Meyer – CEO Hand of Hope

As the world’s attention is focused on South Africa for the World Cup, ministry to the most vulnerable continues. Today I was able to visit Umthombo in the city of Durban. They use a variety of methods to rescue kids from the streets, but the most unique and popular is the surfing program. Durban is known by surfers world wide as a great location and Tom Hewitt who runs the ministry is an accomplished surfer himself. Joyce Meyer Ministries has partnered with them for years and just recently we were able to help open this 24 hour drop-in shelter for the kids.

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
