Victory Outreach Curaçao
Pastor Djuni Blindeling was born in 1964 on the island of Curaçao. It was in the City of Den Helder, the Netherlands where Djuni came into an encounter with a man who changed his life forever, the Lord Jesus Christ. After graduating from the Men's Home in Amsterdam, he served faithfully for many years as Youth Minister in the Amsterdam Church.
It was there where he received his leadership and pastoral training. In 1996 his heart began to ache with love and compassion for the people of his home country. A year later, along with his wife Gimena and their children, he was launched out to begin a work in Willemstad, Curaçao.
In 2006, Pastor Djuni went to be with the Lord and the vision continues...
John Lont Sr. was born and raised on the island of Curacao. In 1985 John was saved in the ministry of Piet Huisman at Mount Pleasant in Curaçao. Later he went to the Victory Outreach Rehabilitation Center in Amsterdam; where God touched his life and called him to preach the Gospel.
In Victory Outreach Amsterdam he met his wife Marleen and they were married by Pastor Sonny Arguinzoni Sr. After 6 months they moved the Victory Outreach Mother Church in La Puente; where Pastor John went to the L.A.B.I. Bible school.
In 2000, John and his wife came to Curaçao to help Pastor Djuni in the ministry for one and a half year. In 2002, Pastor John was sent out by Pastor Sonny Sr. as an Evangelist to preach the Gospel.
In 2006, Pastor John and his wife were asked to come to Curaçao and take over the church, together with their 3 children: Rachel, Abigail and John Jr.
