A Place of Healing. Friends, if you have never read or listened to anything by Joni, please do. I don't know how else to describe this woman except as a global treasure for the body of Christ. The path marked out for her by the Lord has been so unique and her ministry and message so profound that it is simply impossible to estimate what value she has brought to the Church over the years. I still remember the life-changing impact her book Heaven: Your Real Home had on me years ago as a young youth minister in Oklahoma. Now, having tasted the tears of nearly 15 years of ministry, sitting to learn at Joni's feet again is a very refreshing and humbling experience. I was sad that she wasn't able to come to Cape Town for Lausanne III back in 2010. I still hope I get a chance to meet her this side of eternity. So, go and read (or listen to, it is available in audio) Joni's book and also check out the ministry she leads at Joni and Friends.
