Apostle Joseph Lewis Stanford

by Ruth Fransman
(South Africa)

We, The Ambassadors For Christ World Outreach Ministries, South Africa, and Bishop Lavis are so proud of our Apostle. He is truly a Man of God. He tells you the truth about yourself in such a loving way. He is truly a Sent One. A chosen son of God. He teaches us bible principles and we have applied them and our lives are changed and getting progressively better.


He shares with us so that not only is he blessed but so that we as the ordinary people can be blessed as well. He has not taken anything from us but rather gives not only material but fills us spiritually and equips us so that we can prosper both materially and spiritually. He is concerned about even our physical needs.

I must still meet a Man of God who is truly honest, full of love and has genuine concern for his people that follow him.

Sir we truly love and respect you. God bless

Breathe of God
by: Marcelino Hanse Ceres

When I became part of the AFC SA I was a mess. At that time I felt like a dam full of contaminated water. Separated from my wife on my way to loosing my job end heading speedily to death not just spiritually but fiscally as well. But then I met people taught by a man of God who truly loves and is an example of what God says love has to be. Apostle J L Stanford is really God sent. Teaching us what it is to LOVE God for yourself, follow the instruction of your leaders. Submit under the authority over you not just in church but at work. Praise God for you Apostle. You really brought me to a place in life where I am on my way to having a true relationship with God.

I Love you
by: Valencia

I love you so much. You are the best blessing that could have ever happened to my family!!!!!!

Love and Appreciate you Apostle Joseph L Stanford
by: Brenda Williams Ceress

Apostle you have changed my life in so many ways, to love my neighbor more than I love myself, to read and live the Word of God, to believe and trust my leaders as well as my fellow brothers and sisters, to live out the teaching by knowing God for myself, when you walked into my life my marriage, my husband, my relationship with my fellow brothers and sisters. Apostle you are indeed a real Man of God that's not just a preacher and a teacher but you are indeed a preacher and like Abraham a father to all. Thank you for being a huge inspiration to me and my husband Byron's life. We love and appreciate you so much.

Thank you Apostle for your words of inspiration in your teachings. We don't know you long,but through listening to all the testimonies of AFC Atlantis, we had the opportunity to get to know you very well. When we talked to you that night it was very clear to me that you are an example of what a real man should be like. Thank you for walking the talk,showing us that it is possible to walk uprightly. God bless you abundantly.

love
by: sharon

Apostle teach us that love is a verb. You cannot just say I love you but not do anything. Love needs action. the best way to see love at work is to look at the life of Apostle Joseph Stanford. Thank you Sir for being the greatest lover I've ever known. By your life I am taught how to live loving everyone around me.

I have never met a person like you Apostile before in my whole life. A man so dedicated to do what pleases God, a man who gave up his life for other people, a man who loves unconditionaly.We love you Apostile and thank you for everything that you have done for us. Because of you we've got back the control of what the devil stolen from us. May God bless you and your family.

A Great Example of a Man of God
by: Pearl Johnson

Apostle for over the pass 25 years I have known you, you have been a true example of a true man of God, a man of faith, a man of great integrity and courage and with great wisdom that loves what God has commissioned you to do. You have served, loved, changed peoples lives on behalf of Christ consistently and continually. When God chose you He knew you would obey Him and that you would care about His people enough to teach us throught His word to be reconciled back to Him.

Thank you God for calling Apostle Stanford.
Thank you Apostle Stanford for answering the call.
My prayers, my support, my love shall always be toward you, your family and AFC.
Love Pearl

AFC Apostle

I'm so proud about my lovely Apostle Joseph Stanford In Zimbabwe we love you Apostle you are such a caring father may God Bless you

This is so real it's almost scary!!
by: Anonymous

You know how you always feel that some things just can't be real, like ghosts or witchcraft, etc. But then God sets you up and shows you just how real He is by sending me of all people an Apostle. Now I thank God for this, cuz I know, it's not everyone that can hear this type of teaching. Especially now, this is grown up teaching, the church folk is not able to hear this, only those that are called true sons.....

I love you Apostle, you have changed my life, and you continue to do so, by teaching me heavenly principles

your son.....

Apostle Joseph L Stanford
by: Joanne

Apostle Stanford is a true man of God,

Words cannot express the greatness of this Man, God sent him from all over the waters to bring us Spirituality, When I came to the AFC Church, I had just about nothing, my life was broken to a million pieces and messed. I remember looking at the church door and hearing clearly the voice of God saying, ?Joanne, this is where I want you to be? I just said, God, I don?t know anybody at this church, but on account of Your Word, I will go. It was an evening service in Atlantis, when I first saw the Apostle, that evening I just knew that I had to touch this Man of God, if I could just touch the hem of his garment? after turning from giving my offering I had an opportunity to touch him, and that touch brought my healing and my restoration! (Smile) And now, after over 3 years, you take a look at me now. A Strong Woman of God, and what?s so amazing is that God is progressively making us better, to bear more fruit.

Love you much Apostle
Joanne

Whom or What shall I compare you to?
by: Ashley Basson

You are like wisdom in the book of Proverbs. you cried out with a loud voice, speaking a truth that I've never heard or known before you. But when you cried out God opened my ears and heart, and I thank God that I heard you. For now I have the Fear of the Lord restored inside of me, because of wisdom that cried out to me. Then these questions pops up in my head; Who shall I compare you to? What shall. And the answer keep on coming back to me the same..... JESUS!
That is who and what i shall compare you to. because just like Jesus, you stepped into a sinners life and brought about a change that only God can allow. Thank You Apostle for being a Father and allowing God to use you.
I love you most dearly.
Your Son
Ashley

God Bless you for everything you've done thus far in South Africa. I'm deeply thankful for your enormous investment in this ministry & my life. I can only thank God for coming into contact with you at that period of darkness in my life. It is through that divine intervention that I can now draw strength daily & fulfill my purpose.

May God Bless you & your family abundantly for everything that you've done this far, your time and efforts do not go unseen.

Lots of love
