Thanks for your interest and concern in Morning Star Ministries.
Morning Star Ministries was organized in 2008 with the primary goal of reaching the American Indian with the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It has been determined that less that 10% of American Indians make any claim to the Christian Faith. We want to encourage existing work among Indian people and seek to establish new work as the Lord provides the Leadership. The work of reaching the American Indian has been slowly but surely diminishing in recent years, as the energy and efforts of most Evangelical groups are being placed upon other people groups.
It has also been determined that the American Indian makes a more positive response to other American Indians and we hope this will enable us to reach some areas that have not been reached yet.
Thanks for your interest to visit this website and see how God is using MSM in the effort to reach the precious Indian people of North America.
Pray About how you can become involved in this effort and contact us if you want or need more information.
Go Ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And Lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
Jesus Matt: 28: 19-20

At the Cross
Sept 5-6, 2014
A team of 5 men conducted a small mission project among the Cherokee’s in western North Carolina. A Cherokee church is preserving a 100 year old building and has renovated a basement area. Our team hung and finished the sheetrock for them.
Nov. 16-20 A MSM Team (Pastor Charles, Pastor Chris Hunt, Pastor Gary Hawkins) was in California to meet with California Baptist Convention officials to inquire into the status of Baptist work among Native Americans in the state of California. There are more Tribes and more Native Americans in California than any other state in the USA. We discovered that very little effort is being made, by any group to reach the more than 330k Natives with the Gospel. It is our goal to partner with the State Convention in the days ahead for a serious effort to share the message of Jesus Christ with Native Americans in California.
On Dec 12-13 MSM partnered with South Broadway Baptist Church in Baltimore, Md., to provide a meal and blankets, boggans and gloves to the Homeless.

A recent Project was finished when 7 pallet loads of clothing was delivered to Larry Adams Trucking in N. Wilkesboro, NC. This clothing will be taken to S. Dakota and Arizona to some very needy Indian Communities. Bro. Larry is a fantastic Christian Minister who loves Indian people and is providing a much needed service of shipping across America. Pray that God might continue to use his efforts to bless the Native American people across America.

Greeting in the wonderful name of Jesus, the Christ Child of Bethlehem. It is always a joyous season of the year when Christians celebrate the birth of our Savior. The story never gets old or boring. No other event in human History captures the attention of the world quite like the Birth of Jesus over 2,000 years ago. This season is a reminder to the Disciples of Jesus, that the world still does not know Him truly as Savior and Lord. For most of the world, He is still in a barn in Bethlehem. To Believers, He is the resurrected Savior, who will one day come again to receive His bride unto himself. This we call the Gospel. It is the goal of Morning Star Ministries to share the good news of the Gospel with every opportunity we are given. Our particular goal is to share the message of hope with the American Indian, most of whom make no claim to a relationship to Jesus as Savior and Lord. Thanks you for your interest in what God is doing with MSM. We ask that you continue to pray for, encourage and support financially, as God would lead you, so that we might meet our goals and be a useful tool in the hands of God.
2015 has been another busy year for MSM. We rejoice when we reflect on the opportunities we were provided. Here is a list of some of our activities and projects completed in 2015.

May …14-15 A Leadership Conference was provided to about 70 Pastors, Evangelist and other Church leaders in Bohol, Philippines, using the skype internet program. Our scheduled trip to the Philippines was cancelled by the airlines.
June 24-25 We were able to conduct a similar Church Leadership Conference using the Skype Internet Program for the Faith Gospel Ministries in Pakistan. Pakistan is a Muslim controlled country where Christians are suffering persecution, but God has blessed this ministry to not only exist but to flourish and make an impact for Jesus Christ. We had about 150 Pastors, Evangelist and other Church leaders present in the class and God blessed us with strength and wisdom to say what would be most helpful
In July, We were able to attend Indian Falls Creek Camp Meeting in Davis, Oklahoma. Pastor Chris Hunt and myself also visited and preached in some Churches in Oklahoma during the same week.
September 2-5, 2015 Morning Star partnered with the Kings Trail Ministry in New Mexico for a Revival on the Navaho Reservation near Albuquerque, New Mexico. Pastor Wesley Castillo is the Ministry Director. Pastor Chris and Pastor Charles were the guest preachers.
We were given 2 large donations of Campbell Soup products which have been shared with several local churches and groups who provide food to community members who have a need for food.
We are partnering with the Indian Southern Baptist Church in Wichita, Kansas for a Christmas shoe box project. We hope to put together 100 boxes that will be used as an out-reach effort in a city where 1000’s of Native Americans live but have no connection to a Christian Church.
We partnered with the Larry Adams Ministry in N. Wilkesboro, to provide several pallet loads of good used clothing that had been gathered by Mrs. Linda Chavis, in the Hoke County area. These clothes were taken to the Navaho Indian Reservation in Arizona.
We expect to do even greater things, by God’s help, in the days ahead. If you are not a financial partner with us, we welcome you to become one. Any amount would be helpful as we reach out with the good news of the gospel. We encourage you to also visit our website, if you would like more info about MSM, we welcome you to contact us. Your gifts are fully tax-deductible.
Some of the projects on the schedule for 2016 include; Missions Fair 2016, Follow-up to our California trip, Philippine Trip, Arts Festival, Indian Falls Creek, Reservation Revivals, etc. Pray for us as we seek the Lord’s will and the Lord’s direction for the coming year. We only want to do what He wants us to do.
