We are walking on the water again. Will you come and walk with us?

Dear Beloved,
I’m way past due on my updates so I thought I better put out an email. Linda and I pray you all had great holidays spending time with your families. However if your like me it’s time to get back to work for the Kingdom of God.

Haiti is much calmer than pre Christmas. Thank you Jesus. Those 4-5 months were the most difficult I’ve ever had to endure. Never before have I seen a nation totally locked down for so long. God has a plan and we are endeavoring to follow Him.Presently there  is no parliament in place. The elections were to take place in October but because of the violence it never happened. What does that mean? The President can now govern by decree. This is not a good position for the nation because it puts all the power in His hands. We pray the Spirit of the Lord will guide him in His decision making. We are praying for a peaceful election to take place. We ask you,  Please continue to pray for Haiti.

There are still hot spots throughout the nation being controlled by gangs. The police are doing what they can to bring it under control, but many times the police  are out gunned by the gangs. Thankfully our area is relatively peaceful and safe. But there are areas you just cannot go through. the Gangs are large in numbers and very well armed. We are trusting God to take control. To either get these people saved or move them out of the way. God has a plan for Haiti.

The damage of the 4 month “lock down” along with the violence has already been felt by all. Businesses went bankrupt. The poor still suffer and the schools took a hit for sure. Morning Star lost 40 students, which is being felt in our revenues and cash flow. We have placed this deficit in God’s hands and are trusting Him! We are praying for transfers of students, new enrollments and even a return of those who left. Please pray stand with us.
The Church is back to full strength. God is doing something very supernatural. I feel that a fresh awakening and  a spirit of revival is being released by the spirit of God upon the nation of Haiti.  I began to realize this on our New Years Eve service and now in the first two Sundays of the new year. There is a fresh zeal, a new hope among the faithful. Services are packed and God is moving. I am spiritually stirred, and have a new excitement to what the Lord is going to do. This is what brings me to the next point.
MARDI GRAS CRUSADE AND LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE! Late December I was fairly sure we would cancel this years crusade. No one was sure what the turn of the year would bring. But God knew.  During these past two weeks, as I was in prayer,  the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me in a very strong way. God  first asked me two questions. First, are you still breathing. Well of course I’m breathing. Second, are you still ministering in Haiti. Same answer, Of course I am. the next thing I heard was a directive….I WANT YOU TO DO THIS CRUSADE! HAITI IS RIPE. ATMOSPHERES WILL CHANGE AND MANY WILL BE SAVED! I began to give God the excuses. There’s violence, there’s gangs, there is no money. I received His last word…..Don’t you believe I can do this? Same answer, of course you can.
Brothers and Sisters, the Lord has given us a directive. I truly believe that Haiti is in prime position for a move of God. We’ve done this crusade for years with great fruit but I feel something even greater is about to be released by the Spirit of the Lord.

So once again I ask you all to cover this event in prayer. The budget for this crusade and conference is high,  $35,000. We will host hundreds of leaders, feed them each day and for those coming from afar give them housing in host homes and help them with their transportation. Tens of thousands will attend this crusade. In years past we’ve seen anywhere from 35,000 to 50,000 in attendance. Hundreds and hundreds will receive Christ. The Name of Jesus will be lifted up, and God will receive the glory.

We do need your  Help. We have begun fundraising here in the nation of Haiti. As you know Haiti is the poorest nation in our hemisphere. Yet we believe we can raise a portion  here. We do need to ask you to help us as well. Would you give prayerful consideration to sow a seed. Weather its a small seed or a great seed, if we all do what God tells us to do, God will get it done. Should the Lord direct you to give towards this budget, you can send a check to our stateside office, or you can give by paypal on our website.

We are walking on the water again. Will you come and walk with us?

Once again, Linda and I want to thank you for your prayers and your support. God sent us here 33 years ago to take a nation for Jesus. Churches and schools and bible schools have been birthed all over the nation.  Together, we are ” Taking Haiti For Jesus”.

We love you all.

Thank you!

Summer Newsletter
Dear Beloved,
Linda and I wanted to touch base with you all and thank you for your prayers. Linda and I along with our staff are gearing up for a new school year. Working on all the orders necessary to get it open for the 2019-2020 academic year. This year will be the 25th anniversary of the School. We are so excited about the fruit that Morning Star Christian Academy has produced in the lives of so many young people. We hope to celebrate sometime before Christmas so anyone wanting to come would be welcome. More information will be sent out in the months that follow.
We do have a few prayer requests and a few needs we need to raise funds. 1st, Haiti has remained in turmoil since last February.  The reasons are viable but the methods have been grievous. At the moment, the country is in a standoff because the current government and the past administration have been accused of stealing well over 2 Billion dollars in funds that were earmarked for infrastructure, schools and humanitarian projects. Please, pray for the peace of Haiti and that justice will be served.
2nd, because of the violence, our enrollments for MSCA are not where they need to be. We are praying for students to enroll and ask you to be in agreement with us. God is bigger than the problems of Haiti, and I believe the number of students will come.
3rd , it is time to load our annual summer container that carries school supplies for the 2019-2020 school year as well as ministry supplies.  To send a container and pay customs, the cost is usually around $5,000.  This is where we have to ask for your help. If The Lord would have you help with this need, you can either mail your donation to our stateside office or donate online using Pay Pal.
4th, I had to order parts and pieces for our church sound system. Man, it amazes me how much parts and pieces can cost. This was an unexpected expense that came totaled about $3,000. Should the Lord put it in your heart to give towards this need…. Praise God and thank you!
5th, Pray for our feeding program. Donations have slumped but the need continues. Fishers of Men Ministries provides a meal to school kids in some of the most impoverished areas imaginable. Please, stand with us as we pray and seek the Lord for provision for this program.
Linda and I are determined to continue in our God-given destiny…. to take Haiti for Jesus! You all have been such a great part of this and we thank God for you all daily.
Until the Nets are Full,
Jay & Linda
