It seems like yesterday that Christian Family Church was celebrating 30 years of Ministry and now it has reached a new milestone of 35 years. Drs Theo and Beverley Wolmarans, Founders and Senior Pastors, have dutifully been obedient to the Lord since being called of God to plant a church way back in 1979. In this issue, we hear more of their story and how their ministry continues to expand and enlarge its territories, pushing back the darkness and bringing the Good News of the Gospel.

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things.”  Philippians 4:8At JOY! Magazine we are encouraged to meditate on this instruction and make it our priority! Obeying it is essential for successful Christian living and will result in us demonstrating the fruit of the Spirit in a lost world. Please pray for us as we follow our (global) call to educate and inform Christians of the Biblical Worldview in these challenging times.
