Some regions in Australia are still reeling from flood waters, but there are areas where flood waters are receding and we are assisting with the massive clean-up efforts. There is so much appreciation for the little things we are able to supply such as good quality rubber gloves, cleaners and disinfectants - it has been beyond expectations.

Loaves and Fishes Streetmeet Care Service, who we partner with in Australia, has supplied literally tons of foodstuffs, cleaning products, and resources such as their street vans and trailers which we have been utilizing. They have been extremely helpful in providing disaster relief as well as Citipointe church who has been crucial in supporting our relief efforts.

With the support provided by Joyce Meyer Ministries staff and partners, I have no doubt we have made a difference in the lives of people who have been watching their lives disappear beneath the muddy waters of local river systems and had given up hope. We been able to step up to the mark, exhibit Gods agape love, and extend a Hand of Hope

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.
