The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. 10And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
Joyce Heinrich, 10 Years
Thousands of babies have been prayed over in the nurseries superintended by Joyce on all three campuses during the past decade. Shortly after her husband, Bob, died of cancer, she applied for the job of nursery coordinator, and her interview stands out as one of the most remarkably God-centered, hope-filled, and grief-stricken all at once. Those who know her know that I speak here of a beautiful woman with a tremendous faith-filled spirit.
Where do you think all those baby announcements during weekend services come from? Joyce.
Suggestion: Flood her mailbox with expressions of thanks to God for her life, her ministry, and the difference she makes in the strength God supplies.
This coming Saturday night there will be a celebration in her honor.
