Pastor Jim and Lori Bakker left today for the Houston area to help local churches struggling to keep up with the needs from the disaster left behind from Hurricane Harvey. Jim and Lori, along with The Jim Bakker Show team will be there to feed, comfort and pray with those who have lost so much and are struggling to rebuild. They will witness with you scenes that are left from this devastating storm, and share with you the stories of heroism, courage and the humanity of the people that have been affected by this tragic event.
Yesterday, a truck loaded full with pallets of food buckets, water purification products, Bibles and other survival supplies left Morningside bound for Houston. In an email from Pastor Jim he wrote,
“Never before have you been “the hands and feet of Jesus” as much as this moment. Because you have been prepared and have prepared to share with others, we are able to make this trip possible.
We appreciate all you do for this Ministry and for allowing us to represent you to thousands of hurting people in need. We could not be doing this without you.
Please continue to pray for us in our journey. Pray for those still in harm’s way. And, most importantly, continue to pray that each one will experience the love of Jesus through us to His glory. ”
We will be sharing what is happening in Houston directly from our team as they work alongside these true survivors that have shown the world what being a Christian and an American is all about. Please keep them in your prayers!
We are now asking for your help by donating funds towards supporting and helping in areas where there is the greatest need.
The people of Houston and the gulf coast are only at the beginning of an incredibly daunting challenge as they rebuild their lives. Now is the time to remember that we are all part of God’s family.
Now is the time for compassion! Now is the time to act!

On one of our recent shows, Pastor Scott Hunt came to share his wisdom about being ready for anything in his book, “The Practical Prepper’s Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness.” There were many things he talked about that really hit home, but the two I want to talk about is: 1) the importance of community; 2) water.
Scott talked of the “Band of Brothers” and the concept of networking and prepping as a community so that everyone brings something to the table. He emphasized that this is the key to survival in Times of Trouble. I totally agree with Pastor Scott and have said so many times over many years. It’s important who you have around you in these Last Days when we can almost count on going through at least some kind of difficulties as the prophecies of Matthew 24 come to pass. Good friends and family (including Church family) should come together and support each other with prayer and practical things. Continue reading
Dr. Paul Williams is an amazing, unusual medical doctor. He is like an emergency room doctor, only the world is his emergency room. He goes to where there is crisis and does what is needed to alleviate suffering. He represents the Jim Bakker Show and Morningside Church many, many times like in Haiti and in the Philippines. “I love having somebody out there I trust when we’re sending money or we’re sending food, or when we send water bottles for purification,” said Pastor Jim Bakker.
Dr. Williams was on the scene in the Philippines after the catastrophic typhoon Haiyan in November of 2013. He stated, “hundreds of thousands of people were displaced and 7,000 people died…” All of the electricity was down, and without electricity, nothing works including water pumps.
Dr. Williams turned to the Jim Bakker Show for help.
He needed pumps for water, but they couldn’t be electrical pumps. They had to be operable without electricity. So, the Jim Bakker Show and Morningside Church provided Dr. Williams with the non-electric Divvy unit, which provides about 2,500 gallons of fresh, safe water per day and works by manual pumping.
The Divvy water pump unit was provided to Dr. Williams from a portion of the funds supplied by the friends and partners of the Jim Bakker Show and Morningside Church when they ordered their own water purification products. “Some people don’t understand what happens when the wells go dry,” said Pastor Jim during a recent show taping with Dr. Williams.
“The eye of the storm actually went over this particular island, and so all their water sources were contaminated. They had to buy water and it was costing them several dollars per gallon. With this particular Divvy unit, the cost was down to about 2 cents per gallon for the people. So they were able to afford the water and have safe water to drink,” said Dr. Williams.
A message from a local missionary, Glenn Garrison, stated that hundreds of people daily are being serviced with this one pump.
Dr. Williams is out there in the crises representing the Lord Jesus, and he is also representing the Jim Bakker Show and Morningside Chruch and all of our partners and friends. He was on the scene down in Haiti with Seychelle water bottles sent to him from the Jim Bakker Show family.
During the show taping, Dr. Williams told of another situation in the Philippines where there is a dire need of a water pump. Little children are actually dipping water from a spring near a garbage dump to drink, which is their only water source. This horrendous situation actually caused Dr. Williams to physically break down crying.
Pastor Jim immediately answered the need and directed the ministry to release funds for another Divvy unit to be sent to this particular region. “Dr. Williams has been there, he is overseeing it, and he is working with missionaries,” Pastor Jim said.
Dr. Williams also noted that the Jim Bakker Show had answered the need for food supplies in these crisis situations as well. Over 40,000 servings of emergency food were sent to the Philippines during the typhoon. Frank Davis of Food for Health matched that amount and sent another 40,000 packets!
“I’m committed to what you do. When you see it, you’re our eyes out there,” Pastor Jim said to Dr. Williams.
“I felt like I was walking in the divine purposes of God,” said Dr. Williams about his trip to the Philippines.
The Jim Bakker Show and Morningside Church, along with our friends and partners, feel that way too.
Matthew 25:34,35,40 NIV
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink… Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
For every Extreme Sport Water Bottle ordered through the Jim Bakker Show, a portion goes to help Dr. Williams in his endeavors to help suffering people world-wide.
The city of Wichita Falls, Texas, is still in the middle of exceptional drought conditions and looking at a drastic measure to provide water to their residents.
The city is in the process of testing a plan that would take water from the city’s wastewater plant and pipe it directly to the water treatment plant. The water would be given “extra cleaning” and then placed into the water system for consumption by residents.
The plan should put five million gallons of water into the system if everything works as planned and the system is approved by the state. The city’s water usage, which has fallen from 50 million gallons of water a day to 12 million a day through conservation efforts, would need cut further without the additional water.
The city’s main water source for the town, Lake Arrowhead, is only at 27 percent capacity. Boat docks in the lake are so far from the water’s edge that they stand 10 to 15 feet above water level.
Residents told CBS that while they’re not necessarily excited about the idea of using toilet water for drinking, but it’s better than not having any water.
I rarely post someone else’s message, but I’m going to make an exception with this one. The following message is authored by the pastor at Rick Joyner’s Moravian Falls church in North Carolina. I’m posting it here, in my blog because I believe it’s for all of us. I’m not the only one who cries out for the church to be ready. Those who are listening, cry out in unison with the Spirit of God for the Church.
Please read this post and take it to heart. The time to get ready is NOW!
This past Sunday (Feb. 13th) at HIM in Fort Mill, Rick again encouraged the congregation to do what they could to have at least a 3 week up to 3 months supply of food on hand. In addition, and more urgently, we must have some idea on how to obtain drinkable water. Given the instability both nationally and internationally, Rick strongly believes that although we must not give in to a spirit of fear, it is wise and prudent to store food as an emergency back up.
We have also stressed this on a number of occasions and I again encourage each family to do whatever they feel is wise and out of their own obedience to the Lord. Remember Noah, being divinely warned of things that had not yet occurred, prepared and built the ark. As a result of Noah’s obedience, he and his household were saved. I also agree that fear has no place among believers, however, like Noah, it takes far more faith to be prepared than to do nothing.
Stored food does not have to be wasted but can be easily used and replaced on an ongoing basis. Regarding water, there are some simple solutions that we will be sharing with the congregation in the coming weeks.
On another note, we know it is easy to get out of the habit of attending church and we also don’t want attending our meetings to be just another religious tradition. However, there is a reason we are exhorted in Hebrews 10:25, when it states,“not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. ” In other words, in the times we are living we should be drawing closer together and we should become more connected because we need each other! It was Noah and his ‘family’ who were saved. Yes, we attend corporate meetings to worship and hear the Word and share what God has done for us, but it is also to be connected with family! The Scriptures confirm that He sets the solitary in families. That is a lot of what church is all about. It is vital to be properly connected in the days that are to come.
These are incredible times to belong to the One who rules and reigns over all. It’s not a time to fear, but to rise up in faith. The greatest days to be a Christian living on the earth are in front of us.
If anyone needs some tips on how to begin storing food, please let us know.
