May 2021

This month we invite you to read our carefully created issue, filled with informative articles, encouraging testimonies and the latest news. Topics covered include the modern-day persecution of the Church worldwide, with well researched facts, and points to consider when praying for the Church globally. We also look at the important topic of Pentecost, and other subjects to increase your faith, including the moment of great opportunity that lies ahead of us, through our very own Mordecai Moment. Marvel at God's goodness and unlimited creativity as we look at the beauty and the complexity of design in peacocks, spiders, and man's best friend in Pooch Parables. For those with a sweet tooth, we even have a delicious recipe to enjoy! May you be encouraged and inspired with the latest issue of JOY! Magazine.
