Dear Willet friends, supporters, and fans,

Lead singer, Jeremy Willet here. As many of you know, we are busy in the studio finishing up the new Willet “Searchlight” Full Length Album set to be released on August 26th, 2014. If you have walked with our ministry over the past few years, you know that our band desires to worship God with more than a song. This is why we have affiliated with a mission-sending organization (New Mission Systems International), advocated on behalf of child sponsorship (Food for the Hungry), traveled to the poorest regions of the world to share The Gospel, and have established a million meal school-feeding program initiative with our partner, Stop Hunger Now. It was in 2012 when we announced our 1 Million Meal School Feeding Program Goal in response to the East Africa Famine. Since then, our meal packing events have expanded to impact school feeding programs in over 20 countries around the world! On April 30th of this year, we packaged the 500,000th meal in our hometown of Westminster, MD! 1/2 WAY THERE! Praise God!

I would like to call a “time-out” from all the hype surrounding our new album, the recording process, upcoming world tour, and music video release to draw attention to a humanitarian crisis happening RIGHT NOW in South Sudan!

After years of violence with Northern Sudan, The Republic of South Sudan became the world’s 193rd country on July 9, 2011. Unfortunately, a political decision late last year resulted in an outbreak of violence, causing over 1 million people to be displaced from their homes. With the increase in population, increased violence, and poor agriculture, The UN is reporting that over 50,000 CHILDREN COULD DIE from this food-shortage, soon to become a “famine”, if there is no response.

I’ll let that sink in for a moment.

50,000 children.

Our partner, Stop Hunger Now already has established contacts on the ground and Willet Meal Packings have already begun to respond to this crisis on 4/26/14 by packing and shipping 10,000 meals! Watch this video about Stop Hunger Now’s involvement with holistic community development in South Sudan: http://youtu.be/Eql6a9eOUwo

As we continue our 1 Million Meal Goal, we are asking Willet fans to stop and pray in Jesus’ name for the people of South Sudan. In the Bible, we know that Jesus is the ” LIGHT of the world” (John 9:5), but in Matthew 5:14-16, we read “YOU are the light of the world”! The torch has been passed to us! In the dictionary, it says that “darkness is the absence of light”. In John 1:14, The Bible says that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” The LIGHT for a dark world is present amongst us today. It is our responsibility to be a light in dark situations…a “searchlight” if you will. This is worship unto Jesus.

Therefore, as a band, we have decided to give away EVERY WILLET SONG EVER (2007-2012 releases) for ONE DAY ONLY (today) to raise awareness about this crisis. We are encouraging fans to “tip” an amount of your choosing for the download, and when you do, your donation will go towards our 1 Million Meal Goal! Every $1 = 4 nutritious meals! Imagine what The Lord could do if every Willet fan on our email list (over 10,000 subscribers) gave a few dollars?

9.19.11 Willet returns to Mozambique, Africa w/ Food for the Hungry

On October 17th, 2011, we will be returning to Gorongosa, Mozambique with a team of 10 people from the states to visit our friends in a community where we have been assisting with child sponsorship with our partner Food for the Hungry. We will be joined by our dad Pastor Glen Willet, Jeremy’s wife Kathleen (flying in from Uganda), Willet drummer Tyler Klusmann, former Willet drummer Caleb Douglass, and amazing friends from Maryland, Ron Zepp and Pete & Kim Green.

Since our visit last October, we have seen almost 500 children sponsored from this community through our tour dates in the U.S. THANK YOU!! To sponsor a child with Willet & FH, please click here.

Please join us in prayer as we prepare for this trip. Pray for the many children that still live in extreme poverty. Pray for our missionary friends on the ground that work daily to share the love of Jesus and assist with physical needs. And finally, pray that God would use us in a mighty way during our brief visit in Mozambique for His glory. Enjoy a slideshow of photos from our last Africa trip to our song, “Shelter” off our latest album:
