Blessing Families in Vanuatu

Tom McKaskill - Director - Joyce Meyer Ministries Australia

Sometimes in life it is the very simplest of things that can make a really big difference. This was particularly true for the children of Vanuatu – an island nation located in the South Pacific, East of Australia. Hand of Hope CEO David Meyer visited Vanuatu and saw firsthand the very real need for clothing and school supplies. So many families in Vanuatu are simply too poor to provide adequate clothing for their children, not to mention getting any school supplies.

Hand of Hope knew exactly how to meet these needs. A faithful partner blessed the Joyce Meyer Ministries Australia office with a very large donation of brand new children’s clothing. The clothing donation was shipped off to a local ministry, Apostolic Life Ministries, in Vanuatu. Joyce Meyer Ministries also made an appeal to our partners and friends to donate school supplies and sports equipment. The clothing and school supplies were gratefully received not only by the children, but by their parents as well who cannot normally afford such luxuries as new clothing for their families. 

What a blessing to see the smiling children all dressed up in their new outfits, playing with new sports equipment, and utilizing their new school supplies. We are so thankful to our partners who gave so generously and to Apostolic Life Ministries who enabled the clothing distribution among the villages and outlying islands. There simply is no where that the love of God cannot reach.

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.
