Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)

 5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”


Haiti continues to suffer from gang violence to the point of anarchy.  Gangs continue to block the delivery of fuel and food from the port.  Hospitals have had to close due to not having fuel to run generators and provide services to those in need.  People are afraid to leave their homes due to gang violence.  Women and girls are abused at random by the gangs.  Haiti is in desperate need of prayer and intervention by God.  Our church is sending monthly support to Pastor Charlie in Gonaives to help the people and the children at his orphanage to survive.  Please continue to keep Haiti and the people of Ukraine in prayer.


All is well at New Covenant, and we are so grateful to God for His blessings.  We must keep one another in prayer and continue to check on one another.  Things are getting better but please do not stop being cautious and please continue to use good health habits as we proceed through the cold, flu and covid season.


As stated last month, Ministries and Auxiliaries may begin making plans to return to an active status on January 1, 2023.  This will be a labor of love and patience because many may not feel comfortable gathering in small groups yet.  Please do not pressure anyone to attend meetings.  Everyone must do what is best for their personal situation.  We will get through this season together.

Blessings and Be Safe,

                Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.
