Christmas Blessings in Ferguson

by Ginger Stache, Chief Media Officer for Joyce Meyer Ministries

Imagine you are a child living in Ferguson, Missouri, experiencing shocking turmoil in your neighborhood with little or no understanding of what is happening around you. 

These little ones are the literal neighbors of Joyce Meyer Ministries, which is based in St. Louis. Ferguson is a neighborhood in this city that we love. 

Through our inner city outreach, the St. Louis Dream Center, and together with local churches and businesses we were able to give these kids a reminder that they are loved and valued, and to help their families as well. Every child at Koch Elementary received Christmas gifts and a food pantry based right in the school that is providing food for their families. 

The children were so excited. They talked to us about the "craziness," as they called it, they've seen around them and how their lives have been impacted. But they also said how happy they were for this day of presents. 

Thank you for allowing us to bring a little joy to our own city, as well as places in need all around the world!
