JOY99 hosted a fundraiser for Paradise Ministries, a ministry established in 1987 to do mission work in Guatemala, called “LiftSit”. In 12 hours, West Michigan shattered last year’s record! The “only God” God moment happened with 75 minutes left, when an anonymous donor called and said, “If you hit your $200,000 goal, I will add an additional $100,000.” The gifts just poured in, and the grand total was upped to $305,000!
Paradise Bound Ministries was established in 1987, providing for the physical and spiritual needs of the people in Guatemala. The 2022 LiftSit event that PBM hosted with Joy99/Lanser Broadcasting was the 11th annual fundraiser for the ministry. The proceeds of the event ($305,000) will be going towards paying off the land purchase in Chimaltenango, Guatemala called Paradise Landing. This plantation, and the buildings on it, will be used to multiply the ministry that PBM offers to the people in Guatemala.
