The Starfish -Ka Hôkû Kai



Once upon a time, there was a wise kupuna (elder), who went to the sea to contemplate. One day while walking along the shore, the kupuna looked down the beach, and saw a gracefully dancing human figure. The kupuna wondered out loud, "who would so joyfully greet this day with hula?" and began to walk faster to catch up.  Getting closer ...

the kupuna saw that the dancer was a keiki (child), who was not dancing at all. The keiki was reaching down to the sand to pick up something, and was gently throwing it into the sea. The kupuna called out to the keiki, "Aloha! What are you doing?"


The keiki paused, looked up and replied, "Throwing starfish into the sea." Surprised, the kupuna sputtered, "I guess I should have asked, "Why are you throwing starfish into the sea?"

The keiki smiled brightly, pointed upward and, with exquisite simplicity, replied "The sun is up, the tide is going out, if I don't throw them in they will die." "But don't you realize," asked the kupuna, "that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it? You can't possibly make a difference!"

The keiki listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it gently into the sea, just beyond the breaking waves, and exuberantly declared, "It made a difference for that one."


To our friends and supporters, you have and continue to help us make a difference in the lives of the keiki and the people of Hawai'i. Every one person who hears the Gospel and responds makes a difference! Mahalo nui loa for praying and giving.

Good News Club® Take 2

Aloha,

For the past few months we the staff of CEF Hawaii have been working to advance the ministry to the Keiki of  Hawaii. We have been training a team of committed Christians to effectively share the Gospel with Keiki and how to conduct a Good News Club® ministry. 

Today we launched the 2nd Good News Club here on Oahu. There are now 2 Good News Clubs in the entire state of Hawaii. This by far is not a large number, however, each club started allows a greater opportunity for the Keiki of Hawaii to here the Gospel and puts CEF Hawaii one step closer to  reaching Every Keiki on Every Island with the Gospel. 

Today we only had two keiki show up for this club, again this is not a large number, however, through an exciting club the Gospel was presented. When the club was over, those two keiki who attended club had made a first time decision for Christ. What a blessing! 






Going Back to School With God

Aloha,

The past few months have been busy.The Lord has provided multiple opportunities to not only share the Gospel but share on the ministry of CEF here in Hawaii. On October 10th my fellow missionary and I have had the opportunity to do a Good News Club® in a local school right here on Oahu. Each week we have the opportunity to share the Good News with about 7-10 kids. It has been a great time of fun and learning with these Keiki in Hawaii.

Our first Tsunami

Well we are preparing for our first tsunami here in Hawaii. The sirens went off twice already and as I write this is going off again.The first wave is expected to hit at 10:28pm HST (4:30am EST), so just about an hour again. According to the evacuation map, we are a few miles from the evacuation line. Please pray for all those here and who are in low lying areas.


A tsunami is a series of long ocean waves. Each individual wave Crest can last 5 to 15 minutes or more and extensively flood coastal areas. The danger can continue for many hours after the initial wave as subsequent waves arrive. Tsunami wave heights cannot be predicted and the first wave may not be the largest. Tsunami waves efficiently wrap around islands. All shores are at risk no matter which direction they face. The trough of a tsunami wave may temporarily expose the seafloor but the area will quickly flood again. Extremely strong and unusual nearshore currents can accompany a tsunami. Debris picked up and carried by a tsunami Amplifies Its destructive power. Simultaneous high tides or high surf can significantly increase the tsunami hazard. The estimated arrival time in Hawaii Of The First tsunami wave is 10:28 pm Hst Sat 27 Oct 2012 messages will be issued hourly or sooner as conditions warrant.


The Hawaii alert was issued at 7:09 p.m. after further buoy readings indicated that Hawaii could be impacted.

Initial reports indicate that a wave of around three feet is anticipated with Kahului likely to be impacted by a larger wave, possibly up to six feet.


The preliminary 7.7 magnitude quake was followed by another 5.8 magnitude quake in the same area roughly 10 minutes later. Another 4.8 magnitude quake struck just before 6 p.m. HST.

Forever? Long?....No Just His Timing!

Aloha,

I hope you all got our newsletter, if not, you can read it here or let me know and I will email one to you. We still have not found a place of our own to stay. The pastor here at First Baptist in Hawaii has graciously allowed us to stay in a missionary room at a low cost until early fall. This gives us some more time to locate an affordable, family friendly apartment until we can get our house sold.

Hawaii is a very costly state to live in and we recognize this more each day with a limited income. It is a challenge, but God has been providing in small but sufficient ways for our needs. This is not to be complacent, but while our bathroom is across the church hallway and the kitchen is downstairs and which we can only use at specifed times,We are thankful that we do have a place to stay. It seems like forever to find a place of our own and we really miss the comfort of our own home in Virginia, but we know His timing is always perfect.

I have taken a temporary job at a bank here in Hawaii, so our family can have some extra income. It was not my desire to do so, but it is a way to meet our needs while still working to advance the ministry of CEF. Please continue to pray that we can raise the much needed support that is required so that we can focus fully on the ministry.

Just yesterday we went to a youth event at San Souci beach near Waikiki and as I was speaking with the pastor, and he asked to do a Good News Club® training at his church, WOW!! I did not even have to ask. He already knows 6 people who would be willing to do the training to reach the Keiki of Hawaii. So please pray that we can successfully complete this training as we plan to get it all organized in the next couple months.

Things are moving along slowly, but they are moving along and we look forward to seeing the Great things the Lord will do here. Mahalo for partnering for the Keiki.

Blessings to you all.

♪1,2,3 Jesus Loves me♪


Aloha,

   It is hard to think that it has already been a month since we have been on the island, how time flies. It has been an exciting month though and Kristin and I continue to learn how to better trust the Lord each day. 

    Kristin has officially started her position as the Office Manager for CEF of Hawaii. She has been blessed with the opportunity to work from home which makes it a lot easier with Timothy and Annikah. I have also been busy with Day Camps and 5 Day Clubs, but I am enjoying my time with the children and the summer staff. It has been a good opportunity to see how things work here in Hawaii with respect to the ministry of CEF and also brainstorm ways in which it can grow and be improved to reach more keiki (Children).
 
      Below are just a couple of pictures of some kids who came to a 1 week day camp. They are showing the bracelets that my home Church, Midway Baptist made for them. We had 94 kids who heard the Gospel and 20 kids saved. The kids who attended are living in a transition home, because they have no other place to go.

      I was able to share the Gospel with three parents 2 of which hold to Mormon teachings and one who grew up in a southern Baptist church but stopped attending. Two of these parents have been greatly encouraged by their children who attended and are now looking for a church home. 

     The parent below with her daughter is searching for the Lord and I was used of the Lord  to share with her and pray with her. She has been studying the book of Mormon and doing a Mormon bible study...but has been searching for the Truth, Jesus Christ.  Her daughter in the picture came to club all week and she has been greatly encouraged by her daughter and wants to be able to help here understand God's Word, but she said she does not know how. I was able to give her the contact information for the Pastor of the church that sponsored our week of ministry.  I did some follow up with her and she said this about her daughter,

"Kaiulani (daughter) has been signing the songs your group taught her...we were going for a ride in the car and she burst out in song 1,2,3 Jesus loves me ♪ ♪...I looked at her and started singing along. It was simple but full of joy!! Thank You!"

Praise the Lord and please pray for Trisha & Chris and their daughter Kaiulani. I was able to direct them to the supporting church that sponsored our day-camp, so we will see where the Lord leads.

More updates

Aloha,

Just wanted to give you all another update. Firstly, praise the Lord for answered prayer. We were able to find temporary housing for the next two weeks at a reduced cost. We are staying at First Baptist Church in Honolulu Hawaii. We are right in the heart of the city and only a 15min walk from Waikiki. It is nice being able to walk around and see things.


However, because we are staying in the heart of the city, everything has to be locked. The Church has gates and walls all around for safety as well as to keep the homeless out. They have been known to climb the walls so they could find a place to sleep or use the bathrooms. So, we have to keep our door locked and our bathroom is across the hall, so we have to keep that locked as well, but at the same time we are are so very grateful that the Lord has opened this room for us.

We, are also excited as we have begun the ministry here. We have had 23 children accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour last week out of ninety kids attending 9 different clubs. What a blessing!

The next five weeks, CEF will be doing day camps all week around the island. This week we are in Kailua. Today (Monday) is the first day and we have had nine kids, 6 of who responded to the invitation for salvation. Praise the Lord!

Mahalo for your continued prayer for our family. We are adjusting to current circumstances and we know that God is faithful and will provide all we need, finances! housing, the sale of our house and all our request. Also, we also thank God for the sale of our SUV!!

Also, please pray for one of our students, she was playing games with the children, when she fell and hurt her shoulder causing her to not be able to move her hand. I just came back from dropping her at the ER so the doctors can find out what the problem is. Please pray for quick healing for her so she can rejoin the team in sharing the Gospel.

We are also still in need of housing by the July 1st and we still need prayer that our house will be sold in VA.Thank you again for your faithfulness in prayer.
I Will continue to send updates as I can and I am hoping to complete our newsletter this week and send that to you.

Blessings,
Ricardo

We Are Here!

Aloha, Just wanted to let you know that we have arrived safely in Hawaii. We left Virginia on May 23rd and drove to Seattle, WA. We dropped our mini van off at the Port of Seattle on the 30th May to be shipped to Hawaii. On the 31st May we boarded the plane and took the 6 hour flight to Hawaii. On exiting the airport, Hawaii was very much like my home country of Trinidad. It is a beautiful island, like any other island. It is advertised as the land of paradise, but I think it falls short of what the media and travel channels make it to be. As we traveled the streets of Honolulu we saw a number of people who were homeless and live off the sidewalk. Some made their beds on the lawn under a tree. These are sights you never see when Hawaii is advertised. Hawaii is in need of the Gospel and greatly so. Monday begins the first day of ministry here in Hawaii as we do a 2 week training camp which will equip young people to effectively evangelize children. I hope to complete our newsletter once things settle and send it to you. In the mean time, please pray that we can find a place to stay by June 14th, since the Townhouse we were supposed to rent is no longer available. We also still have a house to be sold in VA and as well as an SUV, please pray that these can sell soon. I also want to let you all know that we are incredibly grateful for your prayers and your financial support, your love and your continued words of encouragement. It means a lot to us that we have your support and to know that you care. We love you and appreciate you all. Please feel free to call or email. If you do call, just remember we are 6 hours behind EST. Well take care and will send another update soon. Aloha, Ricardo,Kristn,Timothy & Annikah

We will try again tomorrow before we leave for Yellowstone Wyoming, which is currently experiencing 12-24 inches of snow! Thank you for your continued prayer for us. We would appreciate prayer in them area of our health, since we have all not been feeling well today. We actually slept all day after trying to see Mt. Rushmore. We look forward to and are excited for all that God will do in Hawaii. I hope to post a newsletter soon, I meant to get it done before we left, but did not. Anyway take care and the Lord's blessings.

4/14 Window

According to the Barna Research Group  “nearly half of all Americans who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior do so before reaching the age of 13.”[1]

Also, “two out of three born-again Christians . . . made that commitment to Christ before their 18th birthday.”[2] If the Lord Jesus is not in a child’s life by the time they leave junior high school, there is only a 6 percent chance of them accepting Christ.[3]

God Can Use a 14 Year Old

 Below is a letter I received from a child in Hawaii...hope it encourages you as it did me. The (Child's name is not mentioned due to privacy).


Dear Mr. and Mrs. Hosein,

      I am 14 yrs old and I live in Hawaii.  Last year, I participated in CYIA and will be participating again this coming summer.  CYIA is one of the most meaningful things I have ever done in my entire life.  After all, learning the quadratic formula and how to graph an equation that takes the shape of a hyperbola (my current math) doesn’t always feel that important, but helping to save children from eternal damnation to hell is pretty significant if you ask me.

     Over the summer last year, I became more and more aware of how important the training we received at training camp was.  It helped us to deal with everything from knock-down-drag-out fights to children who did not want to do anything.  Since last summer, as you know, Uncle John and Aunty Di (that’s what all the kids here call Mr. and Mrs. Dekle) have retired and you guys along with Matt and Stacey Walton have been hired to take the Dekle’s place in training the summer missionaries.

     Last summer, I received a significant amount of funding from supporters.  During CYIA last summer, I began to wonder what I could do to help with funding your guy’s move out here.  I decided that I could donate a portion of my CYIA funds along with some money I had worked for over the summer.  I have sent a donation to the CEF Hawaii office to the amount of $311 to contribute to your fundraising efforts.


WOW!! What a blessing!! This is just a simple, yet powerful testimony of what your financial giving and prayerful support does. It allows hearts and lives to be impacted with the Gospel. Thus, lives are changed for the honour and glory of  our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ.


Aloha,

Prayer Request

Aloha,

Thank you all for your continued prayer for us. We also continue to remember you in prayer and are so very thank for each of you. I have 3 prayer request:

1.) Please prayer that our house will be sold and very soon
We are wanting to purchase a home in Hawaii within a few months of getting there, however, based of the mortgage guidelines we will not be able to do so until we have sold our house here.

2.) Please pray that our 2002 Ford Explorer will be sold.

3.) Finally please pray that all financial support will be raised very soon.

Thank you for your faithfulness in prayer.

The Power of 1 or is it 25??

Raising support has been one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do, yet it has been one of the most rewarding things, in that, I have drawn closer to the Lord, I have seen His faithfulness and I have learned to better accept His sovereignty in my life.

I have been asked the question several times this week by concerned Christian friends, " How are you doing really?"  And my answer is "I am fine." The reason being that, I recognized early in this journey that God is the one who is and will always be in control.

Psalm 55:22 says, "Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

The Lord continues to take care of my family and me each and every day, He has given me a peace that surpasses all understanding and He has taken my load of worry & fear. He has & continues to comfort me with His Word, and I know He will see us through what seems to be a never ending journey of support raising and into the ministry which He has called us too.


So what about the power of  25? Well,we just need 25 more financial supporters giving $100 per month to join Team Hawaii so that we can be at 100% support. Once our team is complete, we can turn our attention fully to the ministry. We serve a God who can part the Red Sea, cause the blind to see,cause the lame to walk and bring the dead back to life...thus, He is more than able to provide the 25 supporters we so desperately need to begin the ministry. 

Oh, I almost forgot, I did not mention about the power of 1...well I guess you can figure that out!


Aloha,
Ricardo

Aloha

Aloha, 

It has been a few weeks since my last post. It has been really busy and I do apologize for posting this late. For the past few weeks apart from family life, I have been busy trying to raise support, preparing lessons plans to teach Christians how to effectively evangelize children here in Virginia and Georgia and I have been working on more lessons plans to be able to teach the youth/college age  to evangelize children this summer in Hawaii.

I, along with another instructor, were able to train a group of seven individuals to begin Good News Club® , a ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship® in which trained teachers meet with groups of children in schools and share the Gospel every week.

I was also able to go to Georgia for 2 weeks and assist in a course known as, Teaching Children Effectively (TCE™) Level 1. This course is designed to offer a fresh approach to evangelizing and teaching children. Based on spiritual and educational principles, the course provides the methods and procedures to lead children to Christ and immediately equips the believer to begin and sustain a ministry where he lives. This course also allowed me to obtain my Instructor of  Teachers (IOT) credential so that I can teach Christians in Hawaii.

We are planning to leave in May for Hawaii, however we are still in need of monthly support. If you would like to become part of our ministry team and support us financially or in prayer, please let me know. I hope to post our newsletter soon,but until then,may the Lord bless each of you and cause His face to shine upon you and give you peace.

In His Time...not mine!

Aloha,

 We plan to leave in May 2012 and we only have 47% of our support left to raise to get to Hawaii, however, it is taking a longtime to move forward. This for me has been extremely frustrating as I pursue avenues for support to no avail 

Kristin and I are eager to get to Hawaii and we are excited to begin the ministry there, because there is such a great need. However, there are days when I am tempted to consider my call to missionary service, but I hear that still small voice reminding me that those are the days I step forward in faith that God has called me and my family into full-time ministry and that in His time HE WILL supply every need that we have.

I have realized that my frustrations are a result of my failure to fully rely on God. I am attempting to raise support on my own efforts and I am not fully committing it to the Lord. As the time draws nearer to moving, I have many concerns and frustrations, but I have committed it to the Lord and repented of my sin. I continue to pray, and I know He will provide, all in His time though...not mine!

 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Leaning on the Lord

Aloha,

Sometimes it can be frustrating having to raise support for the ministry to which the Lord has called us. It takes a lot of time and effort to build and establish a missionary support team that last. It can also be disappointing when I try to do it on my own and select the individuals I think will support us. However, I am learning that I continually need to ask the Lord to bring to my mind the people He would have partner with us in ministry. As we all know, when God directs our steps we are sure to succeed and we are sure to not be disappointed with the outcome of circumstances.

"The Lord is faithful to all His promises and loving to all He has made" (Psalm 145:13).

While, it may be frustrating, I am finding greater joy in the Lord as I learn to lean on Him and trust Him all the more through this process. Walking by faith each day requires a greater dependence on the Lord and I am thankful that HE continues to draw me closer to Himself. Our ministry is totally and completely dependent on Him and not on anything we do.

I am so excited for the work in Hawaii and I know that the Lord will work all the details out in His time. I  am also thankful to serve the Lord in the ministry, seeing all the great things He is doing and will do.

 J. Hudson Taylor wrote:
"As a rule, prayer is answered and funds come in, but if we keep waiting, the spiritual blessing that is the outcome is far more precious than exemption from the trial."
 
My desire is that as I write these blogs and as I send you letters, emails and talk with you over the phone, that you would give yourselves to the Lord and if He so leads, partner with us to reach the children and the people of Hawaii, who are in desperate need of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Aloha
Ricardo

Update

Aloha, Hope all is well. I Just wanted to give a quick update on our ministry. We have been busy meeting with individuals and making appointments to speak with pastors and churches about the ministry in Hawaii. So far we have added a few more monthly supporters to our team. We are in need of 35 more individuals to support us in our ministry with at least $100 per month. As soon as this is done we can begin ministry in Hawaii.

We continue to pray for God's provision and we are seeing His hand at work. We would love if you would join us in prayer and consider your part in giving, so that we can complete our assignment as as soon as possible.

The children of Hawaii need to hear the Word of God and we are excited to share Him with them.

We appreciate you all and thank you again for your faithful prayer and consistent giving.

Blessings,
Ricardo

Happy New Year



Happy New Year everyone. It is hard to believe 2012 is here already, but this is the year we will be heading to Hawaii because God is going to do great things as He always does.

This week I am meeting with Pastors and visiting potential supporters. I spoke with one pastor this morning and I have appointments this week to speak with a few more. Please pray that I would find favor and that doors will be opened for financial support.

All we need is 40 more supporters giving at least $100 a month. God is faithful and we know that He will do it.

Happy New Year again to you all and the Lord's blessings always.

In His Service,
Ricardo
