Morning Star


December 2020

Greetings in the Name of the Savior,
For unto us is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11.

There are 3 titles in this simple phrase that reveal exactly who that Baby was, that was born in Bethlehem.

He is the Savior of the World. Every person needs a savior because we are all guilty before God.

We are all marked by the guilt of sin and stand in need of one who can and will deliver us from that guilt that separates us from our Creator.

He is Christ, the anointed one, chosen by God, anointed by God and who alone is called upon and given the assignment to bring Salvation to the earth. He is Lord.

All things were made by Him and by Him do all things sustained. He sits at the right hand of the Father, with all authority in His hands. He is Lord!

And it is written, that to Him, every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess, that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Hallelujah!!

What a wonderful privilege it is to know Him.

What a wonderful opportunity we have been given to tell the whole world that Jesus Lives and that He loves every person and wants to have a personal relationship to all mankind.

It is this opportunity and by His calling, that Morning Star Ministries, seeks to share the message of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.

Our primary purpose for our existence has been, and will always be, to reach the American Indian with the good news of the Gospel. Less than 5% of Native Americans make any claim to Jesus as Savior.

That means the great majority of Native Americans are not prepared to live with victory and to die with Hope.

We are so grateful for our partners who make it possible for us to go across America and around the world, sharing the message, that the Babe of Bethlehem, has lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death been raised in a glorious resurrection, and is one day coming again to receive all those who have placed their faith in Him.

I hope and pray that you are ready.

If not, then it is as simple as ABC.

Admit that you are a sinner,

Believe that Jesus paid for your sins on the cross of Calvary, Confess your decision before the world… and thou shalt be saved.

Ministry Updates

MSM is providing a special gift to several ministers this Christmas Holiday.

Many Pastors serve in places that cannot provide a special Christmas gift; it is our pleasure to be able to make the Holiday season more joyful.

We will also contribute to local efforts to provide gifts to children during Christmas.

We are all about giving. We are so happy and proud that God has placed in the hearts of churches and Individuals, a desire and willingness to provide us the resources to be a blessing to others.

Thanks for your prayers and gifts.

Together. we are making a difference in the world.

2020 Has been a challenge for Missions. Travel has been banned in some countries. Discouraged in others and some Native American communities have been shut down to outsiders. We sure have missed being able to travel this year to places we had scheduled to visit across America and around the world. We certainly do not argue with God about this. But we will be happy when He makes it possible to travel again.

Isaiah 7:14

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

While our travel has been limited, we have been able to participate in some Mission projects, nonetheless. Most recently, we have conducted a shoebox project that was a great success. We made to 2 trips to Nashville, Tenn., where we met Bro Gary Hawkins from Tulsa, Oklahoma. He took the boxes back to Oklahoma to be distributed to Tribes in Eastern Oklahoma. We estimate that over 1000 children will receive a gift from this project. Some of these children would have received little or nothing during the Christmas holiday. Thanks to all those who participated in this great effort. The joy and the excitement that this project made possible, will never be able to be measured. We will post Pictures and a video on our website soon after Christmas to show how the project succeeded.

The Andrew Locklear Memorial Mission Fund has been and continues to be a great success. Because of the many contributions we received, we have been able to provide support to Children’s Ministries in America, The Philippines, Africa, and the Middle East. During this Holiday Season, we are able to make it possible for many children to know the joy of getting something special for Christmas. You will also be able to see pictures on our website concerning this project.

Christmas Shoe-Box Project

We are once again this year putting together a Christmas shoe-box project that will once again be shared with Native American Tribes in Western Oklahoma.

We are working with Bro. Gary Hawkins to complete this project. We will meet Bro. Gary in Nashville the Monday after Thanksgiving with the boxes and He will take them back to Oklahoma to be distributed.

We have several churches who are participating in the project and we welcome others to participate as well.

We also invite others to share in the expenses of getting the boxes to Oklahoma, if you would like to help with this project.

Thanks, on behalf of the precious children who will be blessed at Christmas time with perhaps the only gift they will receive.
