LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – JUNE 2022

As we approach Father’s Day, I want to take a moment to reflect on the impact fathers have. I feel so blessed that my children had such a great father in Marcus Lamb. He was a man committed to loving his children, being in their lives, and instilling strong Biblical values that are producing fruit even today.

His passion for the Lord and sharing the Gospel helped not only guide Daystar to where it is today, but it also instilled in our family a commitment to the Great Commission and a dedication to the things of God. Marcus firmly believed in loving people, sharing God’s Word, aligning with the Holy Spirit, standing with Israel, and being generous. These qualities permeated everything from the way he took special time with Jonathan, Rachel, and Rebecca to how he lavished his affection on our grandchildren. I am so thankful Marcus got to be here for all of our children getting married, and I loved getting to see him be Poppy to Israel, Arielle, Asher, and Judah and pouring the same love and attention into them as he did our children.

Marcus also modeled what it means to be a giver both personally and through Daystar, and on behalf of you our partners, he gave to so many outreaches, ministries, and organizations to touch lives. He loved Heart for the World because it provided our partners a direct opportunity to change the world, and he was always moved by your generosity. Because of you, we’ve already given to bless Israel and to help those affected by the Ukraine war this year. As we approach our summer Heart for the World, please pray with us about what God wants to do through you this season. I know Marcus is cheering us on from Heaven.

For many like us, you are spending Father’s Day apart from your loved one because they’ve gone home to be with the Lord. So, I want you to be sure to visit Daystar.com/OnDemand and check out the testimonies of Jim Woodford and Randy Kay who died, went to Heaven, and came back. I know these Table Talks will bless and encourage you. And I pray a fresh outpouring of God’s love over you all this Father’s Day.

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – MAY 2022

Hello Daystar Family,

With everything going on in the world today, it can be easy to get concerned or even fearful, but you are not alone. We are here to minister to you in whatever season you’re in. Our prayer lines are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

Before Marcus passed, he planned for Daystar to double our efforts of standing for freedom. Along with other ministries, organizations, and states, Daystar joined the First Liberty Institute lawsuit challenging the present Administration’s attempt to create an OSHA rule mandating COVID vaccinations for businesses with more than 100 employees. The Supreme Court issued a stay effectively blocking its enforcement leading OSHA to withdraw the rule. To God be the glory!

Additionally, we’ve seen some exciting growth this season, and I am excited to update you on what’s happening in our family. Jonathan, Suzy, and the children are doing great! Jonathan Lamb continues to take on more leadership responsibilities as Daystar’s Vice President. Suzy released a beautiful song last month for Easter entitled “Champion of Heaven.” If you haven’t heard it yet, make sure to check it out.

Heart for the World was so special this year and a big thanks to my daughter Rachel Lamb Brown for helping lead and make it successful. Her dad would be so proud of her pursuit of excellence and helping me navigate so beautifully in his absence. She is also enjoying motherhood, and Judah is growing up so fast. Her husband, Joshua Brown, is about to celebrate his 40th Birthday, and he is heading the development of Daystar Español, launching this year.

I’m so excited about my fifth grand baby coming! My grandson Asher is going to be a big brother soon! Jonathan and Rebecca Weiss are due to welcome their second baby boy this month as well as celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary. Jonathan is doing a great job with our IT department, and Rebecca has launched her new podcast On Air with Rebecca. So, be sure to go subscribe!

As we continue to move forward in this season, I am so proud of our family for stepping up to the plate and helping me lead in so many ways. I know Marcus is proud from Heaven’s balcony. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued prayers!

 

Yours for Christian Television,
Joni Lamb

 

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – APRIL 2022

Words could never express just how much of a blessing you are! First, I want to thank all of you who have emailed, called, and sent cards voicing your condolences and support after my sweetheart, Marcus, was promoted to Heaven. It meant so much to me personally and to my family. Second, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who gave and pledged during our recent Heart for the World. I was deeply touched that so many of you are helping carry on Marcus’s legacy and vision for Daystar. He laid such a great foundation, and you are taking that vision forward into a new season. Thank you for standing with me and with Daystar, and I know Marcus is in that great cloud of witnesses looking down to cheer all of us on and is rallying Heaven on our behalf.

This Heart for the World was truly special for us. It was such a blessing to have such dear friends like Perry Stone, Robert Morris, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, John Hagee, Jimmy Evans, Larry Huch, Dr. Bryan Ardis, Del Bigtree, Lance Wallnau, and Darius Johnston join us for a powerful time of sowing into building the Kingdom and pouring out God’s love to the nations. Because of your giving, we’ve already sent out over half a million dollars to help rescue Jewish families and bring humanitarian aid to the region in and around Ukraine. Through the support of partners around the world, we were able to give $100,000 to Orphan’s Hands to help the displaced refuges as well as give $200,000 to Christians United for Israel and $250,000 to Ezra International to help Jewish families being affected by the war.

I want to extend a special thank you to the many ministry friends who shared special messages and memories to honor Marcus’s legacy. We will never forget how much it blessed our family, and please know that your encouragement and how you are standing alongside us has truly touched our hearts.

Looking ahead, I’m reminded of just how passionate Marcus was for the future, and I want you all to know that each of you have a part in his legacy. I’ve received many words from various prophetic voices that God will be faithful and is taking us forward into even bigger things. There are some exciting developments and major opportunities that are just on the horizon, and I can hardly wait to share them with you. So, be sure to keep an eye out for some major announcements in upcoming newsletters. Thank you again, and I pray the Lord pours out His favor and blessings on you this year!

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – MARCH 2022

March 2022 – President Letter

Many times, life will bring us to an unexpected new season. Whether it’s an unplanned career change due to uncontrollable circumstances or an open door of opportunity that turns out different that you thought. But the exciting thing about stepping into a new chapter is that God has plans for it that we can’t even fathom.

I had no idea what God had in store for me in 2021, but He’s set up bold, new things for 2022, showing Himself not just faithful, but invested in Daystar. My dear friend, Pastor Shawn Bolz, shared with me that on the night Marcus passed, he had been praying and believing for his healing. At 2am California time, Shawn saw a bright flash of light outside his window. He told me that in that moment he thought, “God has either miraculously healed Marcus or taken him home to Heaven.” Of course, as many of you know, Marcus passed away at 4am Texas time. It was the exact moment Shawn saw that great flash of light. It was a confirmation that God’s hand was in this, and He was still in control.

I received a letter from a viewer sharing an encouraging word from the Lord for our family and Daystar. The Lord said, “Your steps are called by ME – and I see you following My voice.” And that is our mandate, to follow His voice.

So, we are all the more committed to taking Daystar forward, boldly stepping out into the unexpected. We will continue to take the Gospel around the world to all nations. We will also continue to not be ashamed of the Holy Spirit. And as He empowers us, we will lead the charge for declaring truth and seeing people set free in their lives.

Recently, many of you partnered once again with Daystar during Heart for the World. Your response was so tremendous, and I personally want to thank you for all you do to help us take the Gospel to every corner of the earth. Thank you for listening to the Holy Spirit and being faithful in all your support.

I am also excited to announce that Jonathan Lamb will step into the role of Vice President at Daystar. Together, we will carry on Marcus Lamb’s legacy and blaze new trails. Marcus and I had many discussions about the plans for Daystar’s future, and we will see those become reality for the glory of our Heavenly Father.

The Vision Moves Forward

There’s a beautiful lesson in creation that a vision moves forward beyond where the seed was planted. Consider the forest and all its trees and shrubs that sprawl across the landscape. Every tree began as a seed, but every tree produces thousands of seeds that find their way far past the reach of its branches.

As we look ahead to the future, there are so many new chapters unfolding at Daystar in 2022. Yes, last year ended with the unexpected passing of my sweetheart, Marcus Lamb, but I want you to know that he never stopped casting the vision forward. In his last days, he shared that he wanted Daystar to be an even better friend to Israel. So, this year, we will seek more exciting opportunities to show our love and support of the Jewish people.

He also wanted to focus even more on winning souls, standing for truth, and not being ashamed of the Holy Spirit. Those wheels were already set in motion with the studio redesign for Ministry Now, but this year, we will be introducing the exciting new set for Joni Table Talk. This means that we are not just committed to moving ahead, but we are blazing brave new trails to cover more important topics, stand against censorship, and bring more people the opportunity to experience the life changing power of the Gospel.

But we’re not stopping there! We’re also planning to expand how people experience Daystar with our first-ever Spanish-speaking channel, Daystar Español. Marcus had such a love for the Latin communities here in the United States and around the world. So, we will be picking up that torch and bringing Christ’s message of love, hope, and joy to the beautiful Latin communities of the earth. Be sure to check Daystar.com for official launch information, and please contact your cable and satellite provider and ask them to make Daystar Español part of their lineup.

These are just a few of the exciting new things coming your way in 2022, and you can continue to expect the same quality programming and thought-provoking topics Daystar is known for. Thank you for being a part of the Daystar family. Together we are moving the vision forward.

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – JANUARY 2022

He Is God

As we kick off this new year, the road ahead is full of surprises, unknowns, and even some uncertainties. Last year ended in a way that none of us expected, but there’s one thing I’ve learned in all my years of following the Lord… No matter what we face, God is still God on the top of the mountain and in the bottom of the valley.

I’m reminded of the Israelites taken into the strange, unfamiliar land of Babylon. Daniel and his compatriots had no clue what they’d face, but they knew their God was still bigger. So, they resolved to lean into God’s might and wonderous love and provision. This would lead Daniel into the lion’s den and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into the fiery furnace. And though they faced the impossible, God was right there with them and walked them into a place of victory.

Moving forward, there may be many twists and turns in the road this coming year. But I want you to remember that God is right there with you. And He will see you through. At the heart of everything Marcus and I have done over the years has been this truth – Jesus is the answer. So, if you need prayer today or at any point this year, I want you to call us at 1-800-329-0029 or connect with our prayer team online at Daystar.com/Prayer.

I’m reminded of the words of 1 Peter 5:7, “Cast your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” God loves you more than you could ever comprehend. If you’re on the mountain right now, praise Him for sustaining you there. And if you’re in the valley, take heart, because He is right there with you and will see that you reach the summit of the mountain.

Joni

LETTERS FROM JONI LAMB – DECEMBER 2021

Tis the season for giving! And Marcus and I are always so blown away by your generosity. Many of you spend this time of year helping others or bringing joy to family members and loved ones. But do you know you can also sow into your next year by giving to touch lives with the Gospel?

In Proverbs 11:25 it says, “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”

When you give to bring hope and peace and encouragement to others, God pours those blessings back into your life. And the end of the year is the perfect time to give to be a blessing to others, because it not only impacts their lives but also opens your new year to the favor and provision of God in your life.

If you have a heart to spread hope and to reach the world with God’s love, make a tax-deductible donation to Daystar by December 31st using the enclosed form, or simply submit your gift online at Daystar.com/Giving. And remember that any amount makes a difference.

So, as you store up treasure in heaven and invite God’s hand of provision into your life this next year, never forget that you are changing lives and sowing hope all over the world. And when you build your life around loving people and pursuing God’s plans and purpose, you will experience new levels of joy and peace because you are busy about your Father’s work!

"When we get connected to the One who created us, amazing things happen."
