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

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.

Greetings in the wonderful name of the Lord Jesus Christ. The name that is above every name and the name to which every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess, that He is Lord to the Glory of God the Father. There is salvation, healing and deliverance in the Name of Jesus. What a glorious thought it is, that We humans have access to that precious name, that gives us bold access to God the Father at His Throne in Heaven. It would benefit us all, to develop the practice of giving honor and praise, to the name of Jesus. It would be even more beneficial to have a practice of honoring that name when we have no urgent need to present and no request to submit. Jesus deserves to be praised and honored for what He has already done in our lives for truly, we could not have made it without Him. Bless that wonderful name of Jesus……He is truly worthy of our Praise. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Big Cypress First Baptist Church
The Seminole Reservation Big Cypress, Florida
February 26- March 1
Pastor Charles P. Locklear had the wonderful privilege of preaching in revival among the fantastic Seminole people in South Florida. It was a truly wonderful experience in so many ways. The generous hospitality of the people was so refreshing as they went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable and accommodating as possible. My hopes of losing a few pounds was completely lost by the continuous eating that was presented to me. I did catch the biggest fish I have , ever caught, and I did so within a few feet of a gigantic alligator. This truly was one of the highlights of my preaching opportunities. Many people came for prayer during the services each night and we had the chance to minister to several with special needs and concerns.

Morning Star is putting together our Summer 2017 schedule. We are looking at opportunities in New Mexico, South Dakota, Montana, Oklahoma and Arizona. Your support makes it possible for us to do Ministry in places where the Gospel is desperately needed and the doors are wide open. Thanks to you our partners, for helping us to reach out to the Native American across America with the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Less than 5% of Native Americans claim to be Christian. This presents a great challenge. Morning Star is committed to doing all that we can to make Christ known to Native people. Thanks for your help.
Looking Back on 2016
2016 provided Morning Star Ministry many wonderful opportunities to minister across America and around the world. Our first project was the Annual International outreach to the Philippines. This year was our 10th trip since 2000. The impact we were able to make this year was perhaps the greatest yet. Pastor Chris Hunt, Pastor Sam Harvin and myself, were able to provide a 2-day Leadership Conference to approximately 85 church planters in the Bohol Region. This was our first time in this area and it was a wonderful experience.
We then traveled to Valencia where we participated in a Missions Conference, baptized 17 new Believers and presented 50 Certificates the Graduates of our Morning Star Institute for Christian Studies Extension Center.
We were able to fellowship with some of the members of a Church we helped Plant in Davao City before going to our Mother Church in Dagupan City for Leadership Training and Evangelism. It was a great experience and God truly blessed in every place and every effort.
God has given us a great partner in Rev. Larry Adams in N. Wilkesboro, NC. Bro. Larry has a shipping Ministry and we have been able to ship lots of food and clothing to South Dakota and Arizona. Bro. Larry is a wonderful Man of God, who loves people and has a heart for souls. He is truly a gift to MSM. Campbell Soup has provided us with contributions of Campbell product again this year on at least 2 occasions. These pallet loads of food are given to local food closets and some is sent to other places as well. We continue to have clothes given to us..good clothes, clean clothes. Mrs Linda Chavis in Hoke County is responsible for most of this effort, along with her family and friends. Every piece is appreciated and make available to some needy person.
We returned to California again this year, in our effort to discover the status of Christianity among Native People. What we discovered are Indian communities without a single Christian Church. We will follow up in our partnership with the California State Baptist Convention, to start Bible studies in the hopes of planting new churches among Native people.
Once again, this year, we were privileged to teach at Indian Falls Creek in Davis Oklahoma. This is the largest Indian Christian gathering in American with approximately 3000 present.
These reports represent only a part of how God has used MSM to make an impact among Native Americans in 2016. 2017 will surely provide as many or more such opportunities and I am so proud to have you as a partner. Your gifts make it possible for us to meet our goals and establish new ones. On behalf of all those whose lives have been blessed across America and around the world…..Let me say Thank You. We ask for your continued support for the days ahead.
Remember, MSM is a Federal Non-Profit 501-C3 and your gifts are tax-deductible.
