Joykids Supports & Ministers to The Impoverished
Joykids is only a name to act as a vehicle to move among the impoverished people of the Kouga Region of the Eastern Cape, South Africa, a means of reaching the lost.
Calling To the Young Ones
Our calling is from the heart of God. Joykids has been borne out of need and because of many prayers of caring people and the cry of young ones without hope, that has come before the Lord. God has heard this cry from his beloved ones that was smothered in their blood, left to die in loneliness, deserted by the world, because of selfishness. He will provide the means to raise up his army against this wicked world.
No one organization is involved in this effort and no fund-raising scheme will have the chance to corrupt Gods plan. The currency that has paid for our lives has been declared and it is final that only the blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ is valid.
For reference to the projects at Joykids, see our testimonies page to express thanks and suggestions.
The Ministry Team
Joykids has more than one responsible member to execute correct and high standards in the ministry. Every member is a "re-born, blood washed, baptized in water Christian" in the real sense of the word.
Every one involved has a growing relationship with God for some time and because of the fact that they are so close to God, He can send them out to do this work - not because of their great personality, but because of the love of God towards them.
