[Editor’s Note: Jim & Eileen were considered by our family as close, personal friends. We have had them to our homes on many occasions, often for weeks at a time. We have treated them like royalty, given them many gifts and spent many hours taking them sightseeing around Texas. They were the last couple that I thought would be covering up for Michael Howard and Paisley Mavutula’s sins, let alone partaking in sins of their own. They were the last couple that I thought would stab me in the back so blatantly when I attempted to bring some of the unrighteousness at Kalibu to Michael Howard’s attention. Unfortunately, they did stab me in the back, they did TURN their backs on me and on our family, they did cover up the sins of others, they did participate in verbal and physical abuse of others while “serving” in Mozambique.
I’ve heard all the tales from them both about the work in Mozambique, and I’ve heard about the vision and everything else. Unfortunately, the actual fruits are something different. Finding one person that went to Mozambique and actually serves the Lord now because of Jim & Eileen can’t be done: we’ve looked. Instead, what we find is story after story of abuse and a wood business. I spoke to several people who were there in the early years, when there was a vision to harvest wood and roof churches, preach the gospel, start a real Bible school, etc. Where is that now? Instead of the proceeds of those wood sales going into the ministry, they went into the pockets of Jim & Eileen Kirt. They have warehouses of this wood stored up in Michigan. where they sell it from their company, The Blackwood Source http://www.blackwoodsource.com.
They’ve personally told me that “this is their retirement” and that they “never have to work again!” So much for this being a mission or ministry. How about their donors over the years that gave to them while they ran this lucrative business? Well, we’ve talked to some of them as well, and they are just as shocked about the fact that Jim & Eileen have piled up treasures in Michigan, when they thought they were in Mozambique to focus on the work of the Lord. I feel bad for them both and still love them, but they were massively deceived and fell under the same anti-Christ spirit that the others have. At this stage in their lives, their pride won’t allow them to admit that for 15 years, they really weren’t missionaries. It would destroy the image that others have of them, and this is unfortunately all that matters for many these days.
Jesus said we would know a tree by its fruit. This always proves true. The fruit of Jim & Eileen’s “missionary” work in Mozambique is money in the bank for them.]
Jim & Eileen Kirt are the heads of Shekinah Ministries, Inc., which is the fake & illegal ministry being run in the USA. If you don’t know what a sham this ministry is, please click here to read about the legal problems with Shekinah.
We have now heard stories from many people who either had contact with Mozambique, such as Mark Cronin, or who were personally in Mozambique, such as this testimony that we just received. It has not been edited to correct grammar, because we wanted you to read it in its original context from the actual abuse victim, a young man named Alinune:
It Was In November,year 1989,when I First Met Pastor Michael, Suki, Kim & Joyce When They Came To Preach In Chitipa District In The Northern Region Of Malawi. By Then I Had No Where To Stay As My Parents Had Abandoned Me & Chased Me Away From Their Home Just Because I Had Accepted Jesus As My Lord &savior. Of My Life.During His Meetings I Had A chance To Give Out My Testimony& After That I Asked Pastor Billy Mnkhondia To Asked Pastor Michael If He Would Take me To Blantyre With Him. I thank God My Request Was Aproved, He Sent Some Money To Mr Webster Sinyangwe So That He Should Take Me To Blantyre. When I Arrived At Kalibu Compound Formally Known As Ebenezer Bible School In Limbe, I Thought Every Thing Would Be Better For Me. Back Then Pastor Michael Had A very Serious& God Fearing Team, like The Anton, Charity, Jane, Lovemore Just To Mention.
I was Sent Back To School But The Treatment I & Other People Were Getting at Kalibu Was So Bad. Not Only Me But Every One Have Had A Time Where By We Got Whipped.
Pastor Michael Had A Special Hose Pipe Which Him & Paisley Used To Beat Us Using It.
[Editor’s Note: If you don’t know what a hose pipe beating looks like, watch this video of another African school teacher filmed beating a student with a hose pipe. He was secretly taped with a cell phone. Note the disgusting way the women are standing off to the side, apparently praying as this child is beat. DISGUSTING! What kind of God do they serve? Apparently the same one as Michael, Paisley & Jim. This teacher in the video was arrested and imprisoned for doing this.]
My FELLOW Friend Had To Run Away In Early 90s, but I still remained there just because I wanted to complete my education. Life was just very tough. All the people working there were not born again after the first team left. In 1994, pastor Michael Bought Another Plastic Black & red Rod From Zambia Which Him & Paisley Have Been Using To Beat Us With It. This Rod Paisley Is Using Up To Date.
The Treatment At The Compound Was Just No Different To A Prison Campus. We Used Have Nsima With Pegion Peas Without Tomatoes & cooking Oil In It, This Is Happening Up To Date. The Place Was Full Of People Who Had No Fear Of God In Their Heart But Full Of Fonications, corruptions & oppressions Of Others. Any One Who Tried To Rebuke Them Became Their Worse Enemy,like His First Bible School Team, Charles Tailor, Gerald, Tom Even Myself. They Much Rely On Their Wealth More Than Relying On God. In The Year 2002, paisley Kicked Me Out Of Kalibu Like A Dog. He Claimed That I Revealed Him To My Landlord That He Was Committing ADULTERY With My Landlord’s Wife.
I was in Mozambique for a time. Jim beat me so much with some of his workers, that one day I used a chain saw to threaten them to protect me. But Eileen was the worse in behavior than Jim. Jim is a very quiet man but he was made to be cruel.
[Editor’s Note: I can certainly testify to this! If I ever met a woman with a Jezebel spirit, it’s Eileen Kirt! I have seen her lose her temper on several occasions, and she just becomes nasty in a very sarcastic way. She needs some serious deliverance, and in no way should be traveling and teaching or ministering in any way in her current condition. As for Jim, I don’t specifically know what background he’s hiding, but he’s gone through multiple marriages and outwardly appears very quiet and conservative. We were sitting in my living room and talking about Sodom and Gomorrah and the depravity of homosexuality less than a year ago, and Jim began to defend them, saying that he “didn’t have a problem with homosexuals!” At the time, it shocked my wife and I both, because he is so verbally outspoken on every other conservative issue. I don’t know if this is because he has been covering for a homosexual like Michael Howard for so long, or because he has his own struggles with this? To be clear, I certainly have a problem with homosexuals, because GOD has a problem with homosexuals! They can be delivered, just like a thief, liar, drunkard or any other sinner can, but they can’t continue to practice sin and expect the Body of Christ to turn a blind eye to it! This is precisely why we lack God’s presence in our lives; because we refuse to turn from sin and pursue the Holiness and Righteousness of the Kingdom of God!]
You know I have scars from the beating by Pastor Michael, Paisley & Jim. They used to beat me several times & it was a habit to them.
In fact my wife told me that Paisley forced her to sleep with him when I was in prison in order to help her get money.
Rozella Heyns’ testimony of Jim & Eileen Kirt
When all is said and done Jim and Eileen will be without excuse.
A number of years ago, I visited Mozambique, where Jim & Eileen Kirt were “missionaries” for the better part of 15 years.
They were the perfect hosts, but while I was there I saw very little ministry and the focus was mainly on the wood business. Even back then, they were having problems with their pastors.
Throughout their time in Mozambique they were always having problems with pastors. At the time, I had just been through one of my episodes with Michael and they asked what the problem was. I told them I had been having a really tough time and that Michael was being very difficult. They were all too aware of what that was like and Jim even offered to talk to Michael on my behalf. I told them definitely not since it would make matters even worse. Michael would not appreciate me talking with someone he considered far less spiritual than he.
In July of 2011 Eileen was touring the US – this would end in Chicago for the conference. She had stopped over in Lawrence, Kansas to visit a mutual friend and had to have work done on her car, so I drove through to spend the day with her. She informed me that their time in Mozambique was over and that they planned to move back to the States. It took them another two years after that because they did not have enough blackwood to stock for their retirement.
The blackwood business from the beginning was supposed to support Calibu Ministries in Mozambique and yet not one single church was built or roofed by them, nor one pastor supported in all the years they were there.
Eileen told me they had found the perfect couple to take over from them in Mozambique when they returned to the States. Despite the fact they were warned about this couple, they refused to hear it – just as their leader, my brother Michael Howard, never listened when someone has tried to warn him. So, they ignored warnings and it turned out that the husband was in adultery and was abusive. Sound familiar to you all?
Still, Kalibu ministries PAID for his return ticket to the States. The wife remained in Mozambique and ended up living with a Moslem and eventually marrying him. Wonderful discernment Jim and Eileen and Paisley and Michael!?
At our meeting in Lawrence, I told her that I was seriously thinking of leaving as I could no longer continue with the abuse and the constant stream of young men passing through the revolving doors of Michael’s life. Eileen told me that she and Jim had long been concerned with Michael, as he appeared to have no EMPATHY whatsoever.
WOW, what an amazing word to use.
I was shocked, as the only time I had heard that used was when watching the film on the Nuremberg trials. The young American prosecutor interviewed every one of the nazi prisoners prior to the trial and when asked what they had in common he said they all lacked EMPATHY. I was actually horrified that Eileen would place him in the same group as some of the worst killers of the 20th century.
About six weeks after the Chicago conference and her return to Africa she came back to the States to take over from me. I gave her copies of everything I had on computer and walked her through everything. I had offered to continue helping with storing and shipping books as Dutch VanderVlucht had said that he would not have anything to do with the running of Shekinah ministries. I offered to continue editing and typesetting the books, but was informed that Michael no longer wanted any assistance from me at all.
For the latter part of her stay with me, I took Eileen sightseeing in St. Louis and shopping.
On her return to Africa, she told friends of mine that she was now the “Queen” of Shekinah and that people had better watch out.
Eileen is aware of all that has gone on in Shekinah/Kalibu/Out of Africa. Because of that, Jim is also in the know.
Despite all of this, they continue to deny the truth and to defend and stand with Michael. As a result, they are without excuse.
