Two Schools and a Radio Station



Hello from the Marshalls. Well in the two pictures above you see Principal Shawn of Bible Baptist Academy and Brother Steve (Me) of the Christian Training Center. Praise God for His goodness. Now we have the priveledge of running not one but two christian schools here on Majuro with plans to build two more. The vision is growning. Shawn is full time now as a principal and has 42 students at this time. We have ten more committed to start after the first of the year. Already we are growing. We have two full time teachers and one volunteer along with Shawn. It is so awesome to be involved in young lives. CTC is on break for now. Due to the move and my trip to the US coming up, they are now on Christmas break. We have twenty five students full time there and we are expecting more growth in that area.
The desk you see me sitting at is inside the radio station. With the compound we obtained the tower (100 feet) and the radio station building. Total cost for both of these is about 11,000.00. The radio equipment inside the station is under negotiation. The person who donated the equipment would like for it to either be purchased or he will move it. Because we are not in his denomination he would like it to stay within his church or be sold to us. Please keep this in prayer. However though we did get licensed for FM operation (V7AA) and know that the licensing for AM/Shortwave will follow. Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support. We would love to hear from you! Please if you have any questions about the mininstry email us at ClarkMVIMI@hotmail.com

Hey What's Going on?




Good morning from the islands. Some of you might say what's going on? Well everything is tied up with the property. We have taken over the school and will start to move on the land this weekend. Praise God! It was truly a miracle and favor from God that we got the property. It is what we have been praying for and believing for. Shawn is already teaching in the school and as you can guess the kids love here. We are blessed to have two teachers on staff working and teaching in the school. We currently have 46 students that are with us recieving Christian education! Isn't God so good. We obtained a lot of assets with the compound. We will start this week inventorying and seeing what we really have. Believe me when I tell you we have got our socks blessed off. Our minstry in just two weeks has jumped ahead about three years. Keep us in prayer as we assume the duties of the property.
The financing was just an act of God. Money came in left and right and was a huge blessing. We still have a balance of 55,500 but we know that the funds will come in soon. Please agree with us for a speedy payoff so that the ministry can be debt free. Be blessed in all that you do and we will update you again next week.
