Dear Mount Carmel Baptist Church Global Following,
On behalf of Bishop Dr. Kelvin Jones and the congregation of The Mount Carmel Baptist Church - St. Kitts, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you an Optimistic New Year 2013 and as a child of God, always remember, when Jesus left earth, he left us with some power in Matthew 10 that we have not been using for years. Let's start using it from day one - TODAY and get radical for Jesus. No matter what struggles you crossed over into the new year with, I want you to be reminded of the words in Jeremiah 32:17 - Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
Everyday when you wake, please DECLARE YOUR MORNING - DECLARE YOUR DAY! I believe that 2013 is a year of deliverance and also a year of destruction. Deliverance is coming to those Children of God who have been faithful, praying, trusting and working to build the kingdom of God even in the midst of trying times. I can smell it - 2013 is a BOUNCE BACK YEAR. Thus I continue to encourage Mount Carmel Youth and members to get excited once they are living a life that pleases God, evangelizing and trying to build the kingdom of God.
Sadly, in 2013, destruction and demise is coming upon individuals and nations because of the open disobedience to God's word. I know, we are not perfect. We all make our mistakes. As children of God, we are being worked on daily, but since we accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we know that if God were to come TODAY - we will be caught up to meet him in the air. Why not hop on the Jesus Train at the start of 2013 - Don't continue to be a fugitive from God. Visit http://www.kwforchrist.com/gpage1.html for a quick Salvation Bible Study and accept Jesus today. This is the last warning that some will ever get before their demise as these articles now reach the world.
On Christmas Sunday, (a cultural term used in the Caribbean which is the Sunday before Christmas), Bishop Dr. Jones challenged the youth to carry on the legacy of Dr. William Connor, Founder of the 1st Baptist Church in the Federation as he informed that 2013 will be 50 years since the start of the Baptist Work in St. Kitts and he was one of the two founding members alive.
In talking with him after, I learned of his vision to see CONTINUITY and finally bring back the radical impact that was once among the Baptist Bodies and try to restore the unity that once existed. Pastor Jones asked for our Ministry's Further Help to make this reality and as we always do - WE ENJOY HELPING MINISTRIES THAT ASK. Therefore, on this the 1st of January, 2013, it gives me great pleasure to officially launch Bishop Dr. Kelvin Jones' Vision - The Dr. William Connor Foundation - www.drwilliamconnorfoundation.org that is expected to make a global impact around the world from DAY one.
God has given me a fresh energy with wish I have to push Dare 2 Be Different International and Mount Carmel Baptist Church with, because this is my calling. As I listened to Brother David Allen share on the last Sunday Night in 2012, he challenged the church to move with my energy because he felt that I was only placed at Mount Carmel for a Season before God moved again. Brother Allen said, as I smiled, "This young man has more energy than everyone in the church put together and we must help him, support him and Brother Fahie shouted - Or We going lose him." Brother Allen continued, "Although we can't keep up with his quick spirit and fast turn over, Brother Wallace is the Breakthrough that Mount Carmel has been praying for for years and now God has sent him to get radical, we must support him because its not like he wants a church or ministry, he has his own. I never knew God blessed him so much, I just knew him from our Whit Youth Retreat when the three churches use to come together. Those times we broken and we must bring them back. Since his coming on September 16th with a Sermon that shook the church, things have never been the same again. The world now knows we are still alive, people contacting form all over the globe and the youths are excited - overly excited."
I just smiled and gave God thanks. It is with this energy, that today 1st January, 2013, I sent out BlackBerry Messages and Texts to our members to rally them together as we start the restoration process of three dilapidated buildings on the church property for years since their roofs were blown off in the early 90s.
We move in faith with no money to restore these buildings and we need your immediate support. Sponsor a plywood, a galvanize, some nails, some blocks, some cement, some computers, school books, encyclopedias etc.
One will be the Mount Carmel Girl's Club House, the other will be The Mount Carmel Boys Club House and the third will be a snackette to raise funds to support this youth effort. God has told me that in my SEASON at Mount Carmel, I must re-energize the church and rejuvenate the youths because they will be the ones responsible for carrying on the legacy founded by Dr. William Connor as we celebrate 50 years of Radical Baptist Witness.
If you are a fellow Baptist Co-Labourer, we invite you to become a member of The Dr. William Connor Foundation today - www.drwilliamconnorfoundation.org. We also want you to keep your ears and eyes open as we contact your church Baptist or Otherwise to conduct crusades and empowerment training and mission trips across the world. We want to give our preachers the exposure and opportunity to minister. Global churches have helped the late Dr. Connor and our three Baptist Churches over the years. The Mount Carmel Baptist Church will now lead the way to helping and giving back to others - because after 50 years - WE ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE.
It is quite humbling to note to the world, that Bishop Dr. Jones isn't threatened by his ministers of the gospel. He rarely preaches now, and gives 95% of the opportunity to his younger, vibrant preachers and gives us tips here and there to better develop us. He commends us when we are on target and tells us when we are too long. This is truly a remarkable attribute of a Pastor again to not spend time and church money inviting others preachers for long and short terms on a regular basis, but rather use his own.
We love Pastor Jones and we know the Bishop Loves God, Loves Us and Loves the Work!
Three Cheers to Bishop Dr. Kelvin Jones on the launch of his dream - The Dr. William Connor Foundation - www.drwilliamconnorfoundation.org - A Project he has commissioned his youths to carry out!
