NYC Prayer/Healing Services to Start

December 22, 2015

Dear Partner,

As Christmas is approaching, Kim and I are praying for you to have a safe, prosperous, and fun time with your family and friends. May the love Jesus has put in your hearts, be used to touch the lives of those around you this Christmas Season.

Special Announcement

Last month, we shared with you, the vision God has put in our hearts for the people of NYC. He has instructed us to put 5 churches in NYC (1 in each of the 5 boroughs). We were led to prayer walk/drive in Lower Manhattan and on Staten Island first.

The strategy He has given us, is to start with Prayer/Healing Services twice a month in one location. As these services grow, we will expand the space we need, and eventually, once we have a strong core group, start a church! We are really excited about this new vision God started speaking to me over 3 ½ years ago, knowing NOW is the time to get started!

First Step: Staten Island

The Lord has made it clear to us that we are to start in Staten Island. We have now signed a contract with Hampton Inn & Suites, 1120 South Ave, Staten Island, NY 10314, to hold Prayer/Healing Services there. The Hotel phone number is: 718.477.1600.

Our first service will be Jan. 14 @ 7:00 pm, at the Hampton Inn & Suites mentioned above. We are so excited to get started reaching the people of NYC, Staten Island, and NJ. God is so good!

Here is our schedule for the next several months, for Staten Island:

Jan. 14 & 28 7:00 pm
Feb. 11 & 25 7:00 pm
Mar. 10 & 24 7:00 pm
Apr. 14 & 28 7:00 pm
May 12 & 26 7:00 pm

The people of Staten Island, after Superstorm Sandy, were left stranded! No one came to help them. They cried out for help, for weeks, before anyone responded. I remember tears running down my face when I first saw them. They were so hopeless!

The Lord spoke to my heart and said, “I’m giving you a heart for these people.” I was shocked. Over time, He kept showing me these people and NYC. My heart burns to reach these people with Jesus and His healing power!

Will You Help Us?

We have come this far on our faith, in God’s new vision for our lives! He sold our house in Tulsa (our belongings are still stored there), moved us to our shore house in NJ, and has now opened this door at the Hampton Inn & Suites on Staten Island to start His vision for NYC!

We will continue to walk by faith in reaching NYC! We will not be stopped or delayed! Who can stop God?

We need you to continue to pray for the people of NYC and for the Jan. 14 & 28 meetings. We need to start strong and see each meeting, get stronger and stronger! We are believing for people to be saved, healed, restored, and delivered by the power of God!

The Bible tells us we walk by faith and not by sight! We are a debt free ministry and always will be! We will not borrow and we will not incur debt! We believe where God guides, He provides!

The Lord has spoken to our hearts that He would raise up partners/sponsors who would come along aside of us and help us in prayer and financially! Would you help us reach these precious people of NYC, Staten Island and NJ?

If you can give $5, $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,000 or any other amount you desire, you would position yourself to receive the same award as us, for helping us finance this ministry to the people of NYC! Every person who is saved, healed, delivered, and restored by the power of God, would be credited to your heavenly account!

Please pray and ask the Lord if you are to get involved with us financially and obey what He tells you to do. We know that as you target your giving, expecting Him to bring you a return, He will bless you according to Eph 3:20 with an abundance.

If you need a place to give an End of the Year donation, please consider Jere Peterson Ministries. Your gift will change the lives of people who may not ever hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

You cannot buy God’s salvation, healing, deliverance, or restoration, but you can put us in a position to bring people to a loving Jesus, who can do this and much more in their lives.

You can give by writing a check to Jere Peterson Ministries, Inc. (or JPM) and mail to: PO Box 15, Lavallette, NJ 08735. Our secure website is another way to give by going to: Your gift is tax deductible!

Thank you for standing with us as we begin to reach out to the people of NYC, NJ and the East Coast. We love and appreciate you! May this be the best Christmas you have ever had!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year,

Jere & Kim Peterson
