Christmas Giving

Shelly Meyer–Hand of Hope International Relations Officer

We recently had the opportunity to support an amazing outreach in the inner-city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In conjunction with our ministry partners at Healing Place Church, we helped host a Christmas party for 3,200 people in the community. There were plenty of activities for everyone, including games, face painting, entertainment and food. But most importantly, we were able to give away 1,375 bikes to children in Baton Rouge who may otherwise have not received a Christmas present this year.

The team at Healing Place Church shared with us, “we are so deeply grateful for amazing partnerships like the one we have with Hand of Hope that made it possible for us to collect and give out all of these bikes. Through this outreach, we were able to share the love of Jesus with thousands in our community here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.”

Our thanks to Healing Place Church and the partners and friends of Joyce Meyer Ministries who helped make this event possible.

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.
