Good day from the Pacific. We had an awesome day yesterday. We ministered at Ajeltake Full Gospel Church. We had an awesome time in the Holy Ghost. The message was, "What are you doing now"! We asked the question what are you doing now to change the world for Jesus. Are you working for Him or yourself. Are you moving forward in the kingdom and winning souls or are you sitting down waiting on the end. We focused on what will Jesus find you doing when He comes. It was a great day in Jesus.
Things are changing here in the islands. We put a couple of pictures up so you can see a couple of islands. Air Marshall Islands is in dire financial trouble and looks like they are on the way down. The aircraft have not flown for about three weeks now. This effectively cuts off many of our outer island pastors. They now must depend on government ships for supplies. They to can not be counted on to be consistent. So that is where you can help us in prayer. We are moving forward with the project to get boats to pastors. That will give them the ability to fish and provide food for their families and people. We have obtained a boat for the ministry that will help us take supplies to the outer islands and get people back to Majuro for medical help. The boat's name is the Pointman. He is in need of some engine work and we are believing God for a new 75HP four stroke engine for it. We also are needing some other parts/navigational aids. We hope to be operational with this asset the end of Febuary to start helping the outer islands. Please keep this lifted in prayer.
We have submitted the last of the paperwork this morning for the compound. We are standing in faith nothing wavering. Once this goes through we are believing God for a speedy payoff so that the mission is debt free. The bottom line is, things are speeding up in the last days. God is making assets available for all ministries around the world. It is up to us the people of God to strike, take advantage of the time and win souls for Jesus! Please support your local churches and give your pastors 100 percent of you! If you would like to help us in any area of ministry or want to be added to our email/mailing list.

Good morning! Many of you already know that we have been working on obtaining a compound here in the islands. This morning we wanted to put up a few pictures so that you could see it. It is a complete Missions compound. It has a home on it, a school, radio station and tower. Many other things that we will not list in the post. The total cost of the compound is 85,000. We have already raised 26,000. We are in the process of obtaining a loan for the balance. We have 20,000 on hand so we have applied for a 65,000 loan. So we are now waiting on a decision. We believe that this is another piece of our vision here in the Marshall Islands. We also know that everything will be paid for in less that a year. Just to give you an idea of the on the compound, to build the home that is on the property would cost about 110,000. We are getting everything for 85,000. That in itself is a miracle of God. Please pray and agree with us on this project. If you would like to contribute or need more information on the project. Please contact us through the Missionary Ventures link or at ClarkMVIMI@hotmail.com for more information.

Well good day from the Marshall Islands. Monday was our last day with Cathy Bentley and Linda Gallagher. Two awesome women of God. They were a huge blessing to us here in the islands. On Monday Linda and I went down to the ministry of health. Linda had brought some much needed medications from Blessings International and Winter Haven Worship Center. She presented these items to Russell Edwards the Secretary for Public Health. It was an awesome blessing and was much needed.
Last week Cathy ministered at Rairok Full Gospel church. Four churches participated in the four day mini session with her. She shared on Ruth and Revelation with them and updated them on what is going on in the world. In addition to our regular students we had over 100 people attend the teaching sessions every night. Once again it was awesome to have both of them with us here in the Marshalls. They truly blessed the Marshallese and our family. One final note Cathy brought 36 study bibles that were given to our students. These bibles were from the people and missionaries in Guyana. Not the US but other missionaries from other parts of the world praise God. If you would like to donate materials for the students please contact us. We are always in need of Concordances, Bibles, Dictionaries, commentaries and other bible study material. Be blessed in all that you do and may you prosper even as your soul prospers.

This is a new singing group on Ebeye. Their name is Special Force For Christ. After my trip there a couple weeks ago they came together and picked this name. Many of you who know my background understand the reason behind this. What is amazing about this is are the people who are in the group. They are three very special couples. Now all saved but not always. The three women pictured there became Christians under Pastor Anwi Morris's ministry. After they became saved they began praying for their husbands. After a long time of praying and believing God the result is all three of these men came to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Praise God! Two of these men were into drugs and were even selling them. They were very bad men and many Marshallese were afraid of them. Now they are serving God and singing unto the Lord. These families have been radically changed by the Word and the power of the Holy Ghost. This is what is happening in the Marshall Islands. People walking in faith and a pastor faithfully preaching the word of God. The results, Lives radically changed for Jesus. Be blessed and we will post their testimonies on our BLOG in a future posting. Please pray for these couples as they continue to serve Jesus. Be blessed.

Good morning. We got back Monday night our time and Sunday your time from Ebeye. We left on thursday morning and traveled to Ebeye to minister to the Full Gospel Church there. We had an awesome time in the Holy Ghost. Cathy Bentley ministered every night and it was awesome. She taught on the book of Ruth and the prophetic picture that was shown there. It was awesome every night. She through the Holy Ghost brought great insight into the end times. It was a great blessing to the Marshallese. Cathy has been here five times before but this was her first trip to Ebeye. It was great.
Linda Gallagher ministered to the ladies and the children. She shared her testimony with the ladies and ministered to the children on Sunday morning. She touched many people on Ebeye also. It was great to see these two Holy Ghost women flowing in the Holy Ghost. They are now in Majuro with us and Cathy is teaching the training center students. What was supposed to be just the students has turned into a four church event here on Majuro. So we are expecting great things.
We have to say that both of these ladies are true blessings to us and the Marshallese. Once again keep us in prayer as we continue to minister here in Majuro this week. Be blessed and may you prosper even as your soul prospers.

Well today was a great day! The Lord is always so good to us, it never ceases to amaze me to see His goodness. Well on saturday Cathy Bentley and Linda Gallagher arrived from Winter Haven, Florida. They are going to spend the next sixteen days with us teaching and sharing the Word of God. They are both wonderful women of God and we are looking forward to their ministry.
They came in on saturday and on sunday Cathy ministered in Rairok Full Gospel Church in the morning and at the Laura Full Gospel Church on Sunday night. Needless to say the ladies had a full day on Sunday. Monday they rested and relaxed a little preparing to go off island. We were scheduled to go to the islands of Wotje and Ebeye but because of transportation problems we are just going to Ebeye. We will spend five days there and they will be ministering to the whole body of Christ. We are expecting great things.
After we return from Ebeye they will spend four days ministering to the students in the training center. It is a great blessing to us and the Marshallese. A big thank you goes out to their families for letting them come to the Marshall Islands. When they arrived they had a surprise for the students. They brought with them thirty six study bibles! Praise God! A tool that these young pastors need. We will post more on that with pictures when we hand them out. We will follow up after our return from Ebeye.
We so appreciate all of your love and support. Continue to pray for us here in the Marshall Islands as we run with the vision. We as always continually thank God for your prayers and support.
