  • DEAR FRIEND,Im constantly asked to share why our partners are important to us here at Joyce Meyer Ministries. And every time, I wonder if my words could ever fully convey how much we appreciate and thank God for our partners. If you are a partner with this ministry, you literally make every single thing we do possible.

    You know, Ive traveled the globe and I see so many people in need. But it doesnt overwhelm me anymore because I know we can alleviate their painsomething thats possible because of our partners. When we are able to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the hurting and meet their physical needs, we begin to see lasting change in the hearts and lives of so many.

    I cant tell you how much my life has changed since I began to truly understand the importance of reaching out to help others. I realized that if I really love God, then it should be a natural thing to reach out and help somebody else. Thats just part of being a Christian.

    But I also realized that I cant do it all on my own. Thats where partnership comes in. When you become a partner, youre able to bring the pieces that I dont have. You bring your prayers, fi nances and encouragement. Youre helping us spread the Gospel all around the world.

    Recently we had Annie Lobert, founder of Hookers for Jesus, on our TV program. What really excited me about her testimony was that after she found Jesus through our Enjoying Everyday Life TV program, she became a partner to help others who needed help too. She even founded Hookers for Jesus, a ministry reaching out to women trapped in a life of prostitution.

    I think its important for you to know that your partnership goes even further than the outreaches of Joyce Meyer Ministries. You see, it was our partners who made it possible for Annie to view the TV program. Now shes helping others, who will go on to help even more. I dont believe well ever fully know the impact of what partnership can do to reach others with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    So what does partnership mean to us? Everything.

    PRAYING FOR YOU DAILY,

    P.S. If youre not already a partner, I hope you will prayerfully consider partnering with us. Not only will it help us reach more people, I believe it will give you greater joy in your own life.

  • We talk about partnership and world missions a lot in this magazine and on the TV program. Well, we know that some of you might be wondering, Whats the difference? So we thought wed try to answer some of your questions.

    What is partnership?Plain and simple: Partnership is several people joining together to accomplish a task or meet a need that is greater than what they could do on their own.

    You know, at Joyce Meyer Ministries were pretty aggressive when it comes to meeting needs. Everywhere we take the truth of Gods Word about love, we need to show love. When we are able to meet peoples physical needs, they open up to hear the Gospel.

    I think too often we hear something and think its too big for us, and we

    just let that shut us down. Thats why our partners are so important to us. We couldnt have the resources and opportunities to help in so many places around the world without them. But we need your help to reach even more.
