Hello dear friends and family,
Time for an update from the Joyces! It’s been a whirlwind of a past many months, lots of travel, lots of ministry, open doors, and excitement. As most of you know, we spent 2 months in the Philippines in June – August last year, taking our DTS (Discipleship Training School), and the Mega-Outreach joining us.
We saw hundreds and hundreds of hungry people give their lives to Jesus. It was actually humbling that we were able to lead these sweet people into God’s Kingdom of love, freedom and hope, and see lives transformed. We also had the joy of helping our 16 DTS students lives grow and change, many from hopelessness to new identity in Christ and a strength in life and character that only comes from God. It is so cool to see them go on in life strong and full of God’s hope, love and direction in them! Yahoo!! The DTS is such an amazing school, if you haven’t done one, you are hereby invited by us to join us; your life will never be the same!
Rick is pressing into the School of Biblical Studies studying around 10-12 hours a day, six days a week, but just loving it. Obviously God’s grace is on him to be able to do this! It is such an amazing time to build God’s Word deeper into him and be able to use it more accurately for life and ministry. Please pray for him… Just a few months to go…
We are preparing for Our New Students who Arrive in just 2 weeks! Morocco, Egypt, USA, Canada, Philippines, China – (Pending Visas). World Changers Freedom and life God’s kingdom advancing. Epic!
