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
