Last week on Celebration, Marcus Lamb and his son, Jonathan Lamb, welcomed special guest Tommy Bates to the studio. Bates, the pastor of Community Family Church in Independence, Kentucky, was on hand to talk about his work with International Missions Organization in Haiti. Daystar was blessed to be able to donate $10,000 toward Bates’ efforts.
International Missions Outreach is working diligently in Haiti to meet the deep needs of the people by building churches and schools. Recently, a 12 acre plot of land was donated to the organization. They would like to turn the land into a youth camp, but up until now have lacked the funds to do so. Daystar’s donation will go toward the development of the camp.
Daystar is grateful to God for the opportunity to give to those in need. On the show, Marcus Lamb encouraged people to pray for Haiti, explaining that many people have forgotten about the country in the months since the massive earthquake. He implored ministries and individuals to consider giving to International Missions Outreach on their own as well.
