Our special guests on Sunday are Jean-Claude and Joyce, along with their children Chris, Ornella, Venerande and Isabella. They have been living in rural, southern Malawi since 2018.
Jean-Claude and Joyce are passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus with their Yawo neighbours and friends. They look for opportunities to build relationships and share God’s love through their words and loving actions. Over their first term, Jean-Claude has ministered to kids in street gangs, couples with marital issues, and through prayer has seen a man being released from years of alcohol and drug addiction.
Joyce is passionate about equipping and empowering women with skills-based training so they can provide for their families. She not only runs a children’s ministry, but also a clothing ministry where she teaches the women to sew clothes, enabling them to earn an income. Through their day-to-day life, Jean-Claude and Joyce are engaging with people wholistically, responding to their spiritual and physical needs.
Jean-Claude and Joyce share a passionate love for God and people and desire to see the Yawo follow Jesus within their cultural context. They are building relationships with their Yawo neighbours and investing in their culture and language learning with a local language nurturer so they can effectively communicate with their Yawo friends.
I’ll see you at the 9am and 11am services on Sunday, where we will meet them and hear their story.
