Learn About Partnership
Over the past year, your support has helped fund the many outreaches of Hand of Hope, Joyce Meyer Ministries World Missions. Here is just a portion of what you made possible in 2011.
Books & TV/Radio
Joyce's books have been translated into nearly 100 languages. Her Enjoying Everyday Life® program airs on TV and radio in nearly 50 languages on over 510 TV stations and over 400 radio stations—reaching a potential audience of 4.5 billion.
For those who may not have access to television or radio in their language, tv.joycemeyer.org was also established, which broadcasts Joyce's program in nearly 40 different languages.
Through Festival of Life conferences in Poland, Germany, Albania and Bulgaria, Joyce shared the Gospel with 34,100 people. 7,030 people committed their lives to Christ through these conferences.
This year we were able to feed more than 67,000 children daily. At 347 feeding sites in 30 countries, we can feed a child, on average, for only $9 per month. We also partnered with organizations to reach those throughout the Horn of Africa suffering from the food and drought crisis.
Our partners also enabled us to fund 39 children's homes around the world—caring for 1,145 children daily. We also worked to complete the construction of a Hope Centre in South Africa—a facility that houses the nutrition, early childhood development, basic education and spiritual development programs—and a new primary school in Tanzania.
A disaster-stricken year left many without homes, clean water, food or electricity. Thankfully, our partners enabled us to help provide relief immediately after many disasters, including earthquakes in Japan, New Zealand and Myanmar, as well as tornadoes in Missouri and Alabama. Altogether, we supported relief efforts of 15 disasters.
Medical & Dental Missions
In 2011, we joined with Hillsong Church London to help the homeless of London, England, through a medical van. We also held medical/dental clinics in Cambodia, Ethiopia (twice in 2011), Haiti, Kosova, Thailand, Zimbabwe, Nicaragua, Lebanon, Panama, Uganda and Guatemala—treating more than 26,000 patients. We also continue to serve patients through two full-time hospitals, three full-time clinics and 12 ongoing medical outreaches.
The prison ministry team hit an important milestone this year—leading the 100,000th inmate to Christ! In 2011, prison ministry teams visited more than 100 prisons worldwide. Over the years, we have distributed more than 2 million gift bags to inmates, with each including hygiene items and a Joyce Meyer book.
Rescue from Human Trafficking
This year we were able to support the opening of three new rescue homes in Lesotho, Ukraine and Cambodia. We continue to support the women's home in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; the Transformation Center in Mumbai, India; Gabrielle House in Thailand, Project Hope at the Los Angeles Dream Center and the A21 Campaign in Greece.
The St. Louis Dream Center serves inner-city St. Louis through nearly 40 ministries year-round, including a food pantry, clothing boutique, many children's programs and more. In 2011, we also partnered with other inner-city outreaches, such as the Los Angeles Dream Center (California), Urban Youth Impact (Florida), House of Mercy (Russia), Umthombo (South Africa), CityCare (Australia) and Loaves & Fishes (Australia).
Hand of Hope, through the incredible support of the friends and partners of Joyce Meyer Ministries, has been able to provide fresh water around the world. Due to the extreme drought in the Horn of Africa, we worked to install 13 wells in Somalia. In 2011, through our Well of Life programs, and other ministry partnerships, we were able to fund a total of more than 50 new wells in Madagascar, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Kenya and Liberia.
Thank you so much for your continued support of the missions outreaches of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Because of the outreaches you make possible, lives are being reached with the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ.
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.
