Going into All the World
By Joel Osteen - Oct 12, 2009
For the next two weeks, Victoria and I, along with some of our team, will be overseas ministering in Africa. We’ll be joining Larry Jones of Feed the Children for the groundbreaking ceremony of the new abandoned baby center that he is building in Victoria’s name.

This ministry has been friends and partners with Feed the Children for many years, and Victoria and I have always had a dream to build orphanages and reach out to young people. Last year around Christmas time, Larry and his wife, Frances, approached us with the opportunity to work with them on their second abandoned baby center project in Kenya. We were absolutely thrilled! The amazing thing is that we never shared that this was a secret dream of ours. It was totally a God-ordained opportunity for all of us!

While we’re there, we’ll also be visiting my brother, Paul, and see firsthand the mission’s work that he is involved in. He and his wife, Jennifer, are both trained in medicine, and God has opened doors for their entire family to serve in Africa and Latin America at mission hospitals, schools, and orphanages. They are doing an amazing work ministering healing, life, and love to the people there. We’re so honored to have them as an extension of this ministry. You can follow their updates here.

Finally, we’ll conclude our trip with a “Night of Hope” event at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg, South Africa. It’s sure to be a powerful night of encouragement and hope in Jesus!

We’ll send updates as we can and ask that you please keep us in your prayers. Please know that as a partner with this ministry, you are a vital part of this trip! In God’s eyes, you touch every person that we will touch.

Thank you again for your constant love and support. We know God will abundantly bless every seed you sow into this ministry!
