My Daily Armor Ministries Worldwide!
2019 Annual Report
We Are My Daily Armor Ministries
A family of ministries covering the globe providing Christian humanitarian relief. Whether it’s providing a warm meal or urgently needed supplies to our communities in need in the US (Jonny’s Wagon), or building a 30-acre farm in Ghana West Africa, or a desperately needed medical clinic in a remote village in Haiti (AOI – Amazing Orphans International), or reaching Christians in their daily walk with Christ through our scriptures and inspirational posts (My Daily Armor). You will always find us somewhere being God’s hands and feet, feeling what His heart feels, and seeing what His eyes see.
Our Mission Is Simple
Care For The Least Of These
On January 21st, 2013 My Daily Armor Ministries began with a simple dream of sharing God’s word, uplifting devotionals, and messages of hope to Christians the world over and today we are blessed to have done this more than a half “B”illion times!
7 years later and through God’s amazing blessings, what began then as a simple idea has grown into an international humanitarian relief effort that has spread into India, Ghana, Haiti, Nepal, Pakistan, Uganda, and the US providing hope to communities in need, jobs, food, clothing, educational opportunities, and medical care to vulnerable, orphaned and abandoned children (the least of these – Matthew 25:40).
It has been an amazing journey, one that is just beginning, that would not have been possible without the financial support of our foundation partners, and the tireless support of our mission partners and volunteers. Without their support My Daily Armor Ministries, Amazing Orphan’s International, and Jonny’s Wagon, simply would not be possible.
“A hundred years from now, I want people to look back at the work we’re doing today, as first steps towards building the greatest humanitarian relief ministry the world has ever known.”

Letter From Our Founder and Executive Director
2019 has been an amazing year for My Daily Armor Ministries. With God’s continued blessings, the support of our donors, volunteers, foundation and mission partners, we have been blessed to have accomplished so much!
My Daily Armor Ministries
My Daily Armor Ministries conservatively reached more than 50 million viewers this year with our daily bible verses and inspirational Christian posts.
Our all-volunteer social media team works very hard at keeping our content updated and relevant to today’s Christian, and we are very blessed to have them!
My Daily Armor Ministries, Inc. has a new board of directors going into 2020 and we’ll be seeking ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) certification in 2020.
ECFA is an organization founded by Billy Graham that monitors non-profits, holding them to the highest standards of efficacy and transparency. Only a very small percentage of non-profits in the US have this certification.
Prayers For My Daily Armor Ministries – Please pray that God provides funding for the continued growth of our ministry. That He would provide additional volunteers and people willing to step into leadership roles to help us continue to make a difference in the world.
Amazing Orphans International
2019 saw the grand opening of our Damou Medical Clinic in Jacmel, Haiti. The new medical clinic has become a beacon of hope in the community and has been an incredible success seeing as many as 60 patients a day.
With a very generous grant provided by one of our foundation partners we have just completed funding for first-year operations and were even able to open a maternity ward that is helping save the lives of expectant mothers and is expected to significantly reduce the infant mortality rate in the area.
Additionally, we have had a considerable amount of interest from doctors, and nurses, wishing to visit the medical clinic to provide their essential services.
Prayers For Haiti – Please help us pray for continued success, and for the civil unrest to subside so that church and humanitarian groups can begin safely visiting again.
In Uganda, Amazing Orphans International partnered with Liberty Ministries to help bring hope to the children of a tiny little village in Tororo.
During my visit, I discovered their school, the “Living Word Primary School”, was left unfinished, with no doors, windows, floors, or even the basics like desks and supplies.
AOI was able to help provide the funding to complete the school as well as provide a warm meal during the school day (for many of the children this meal could be the only meal they eat during the day).
Prayers For Uganda – Please pray that God continues to watch over our children. There is a great need in the area and AOI has placed a high priority going into 2020 on developing new support for the children of Tororo, Uganda.
I also had the opportunity to travel to India this year to spend time with our children, Sister Mariyamma (Mary) and brother Raghava (our mission partners, Amazing Children’s Home India).
It was such a blessing to be able to spend time with the children and we were even able to take them to the beach (on the Bay of Bengal), something most had never had the opportunity to do. To see their faces light-up upon seeing the ocean is something I will never forget!
I left with plans to write a grant for a new children’s home, as the place they are currently staying is too small for our 26 children currently living there.
Prayers For India – Please pray that God provides a new children’s home for our little ones here.
Pastor Stephen’s updates coming out of Ghana have been a real blessing, and AOI has even begun supporting Pastor Stephen’s son, Enoch as our first AOI Field Agent.
The reports coming in from Pastor Stephen are that the farm is doing very well, and they are excited about its future.
Pastor Stephen’s son Enoch has begun reaching out into the surrounding communities to help those he finds in great need and has been changing the lives of many he encounters there.
Prayers For Ghana – Please pray for Pastor Stephen and the children. That God would continue to bless the work he and his son Enoch are doing there.
* If you are one of our many AOI Children’s Sponsors that hasn’t visited our “Amazing Orphans International” and “Amazing Orphans Ghana” Facebook pages, you are missing out on some really great photos and stories from our mission partners around the world.
Our US outreach, Jonny’s Wagon, was blessed this year with a generous grant that provided for a new Ford F250, additional meals, and funding to complete work on our mobile food kitchen.
With the additional funding, Jonny’s Wagon was able to mobilize our new kitchen and continue our expansion into two new counties in Kentucky this year. We were blessed to have served thousands of hot meals to those in need from our outreach locations.
Additionally, Jonny’s Wagon (through the amazing support and leadership of our good friend, teacher, and volunteer, Todd Henderson) was able to partner with Blue Lick Elementary School to collect nearly 7000 cans of food and nonperishables for Owsley County in Eastern, Kentucky (the third poorest county in the nation)!
With Todd’s leadership and the help of nearly 500 students and faculty from Blue Lick Elementary, 175 families received the help they so desperately needed over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays!
Prayers For Jonny’s Wagon – Please pray that we are able to secure funding to keep our food programs alive and active in 2020. It takes a significant amount of money to help feed those who need it most, and we are constantly seeking opportunities to partner with businesses, and donors, to help meet these needs.
Those are our 2019 highlights. We are incredibly excited as we move into 2020 and want to thank you for your continued prayers, and financial support of our ministry work this year!
