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.
In His service,
