More updates


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.

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
