Update time!





Well things here in the islands are moving along. We still need rain! However in the last week we have had rain which has filled up our catchments. Praise the Lord! The house and the school both have more than enough. It is the main reservoir here on Majuro that still needs rain. The water is collected as it rains on the main runway and is pumped into the main storage area. Currently there is about two weeks in the storage area now. I will say this, that people have been praying and God always answers the prayers of His people. Even though the weather forecasters say “drought and three more months of very little rain”, we serve a God who controls all things. We as the children of God are not bound by the natural because we live in the supernatural realm of Faith. So we know, give thanks and praise God for the natural rain and the supernatural rain of His Spirit.

Last week we had a great visit with the President of Missionary Ventures and the President of the Christian Motorcycle Association Steve Beam and John Ogden. It was awesome to have these two men of God here and to share our vision with them. We truly made a connection on many levels by the Spirit. There are many things that happened but we will not share them at this time. In the future we will share part of the many things that are happening with our home organization Missionary Ventures and the Christian Motorcycle Association. If you would like to know more about either one of these organizations please click on the links to the left.

Also in the last week we have had our first boat donated to the mission. Praise the Lord. We will give more information on it after the purchase. Basically a 19 foot boat, 50 hp four stroke and everything to go with it. Praise the Lord. We will give the testimony on the BLOG at a later date when it is presented to the pastors. Our God is a good God! All the time.

God is moving by His Spirit all over the world. We have heard about the move of the Spirit in Lakeland, Florida at Family Worship Center. We have heard great things out of Haiti, China, Indonesia, and Vietnam. God is truly moving by His Spirit through out the world. He hears the prayers of His people and he answers them. At the same time we see that the time is coming close for the rapture of the church. Events laid out in the Word are starting to happen to include deception among God’s people (read Matthew 24 and 25). This is time that we have to know what we believe, spend time with God in prayer, live by Faith and listen to the Spirit. He will guide us, lead us and counsel us in these last days. It is a time for the harvest and we must be about the Father’s business.

If you need help, call on Jesus and stand on the Word of God! Self help programs designed in man’s wisdom can do nothing. Three days alone in a program that has nothing to do with the Word of God and everything about man’s way of doing things with confession sessions to a “counselor” is not it. It is time to pray and listen to the Spirit of God. Seek counsel from your pastor and those who know God. Do not be deceived in the last days by wolves in sheep’s clothing.

We love you all so very much and know that you will prosper even as your soul prospers. Be blessed in all that you do and know that as always we are praying for you here in the Marshall Islands.

Funds are still coming in for the property purchase. We are at about the 50K mark left to go, continue to agree with us for a speedy pay off. If you would like to help in any area please drop us an email. Be blessed in all that you do and know that we are praying for you.

Yours in His Service,

Milton and Mouse



Here is a great story from Wotje atoll. I wanted to share this with you so that you can praise God with us. The couple here is Milton and Mouse. Brother Milton was one of the first people saved under pastor Will's ministry on Wotje. Soon his wife was saved and others in his family came to Jesus. Praise God He is changing lives today. Well I want to share a little bit about his wife Mouse. Mouse was using marshalles medicine (witchcraft) on the island of Wotje. She was called on by many to do healing or deal with spirits. Well Praise God she found Jesus and now no longer practices this art. Jesus totally changed her life and now she is casting out devils in the name of Jesus and praying for people to be healed in Jesus's name. Praise God.
We were ministering one night there on faith, I made the statement that it was time to stop depending on the pastor to come and pray. The bible says that these signs follow those that believe, they can pray for sick and cast out devils! Well I did not know, but Milton was very sick. Mouse heard the Word and after the service went to her house. She walked into that room with Milton and prayed the prayer of faith in Jesus's name. Praise God, Milton was instantly healed!! No delay, healed, God honored her faith because she prayed and believed. Thank God for His power all over the world. Be blessed in all that you do and thanks for your prayers and support.

Wotje Trip Outer Islands




Well we had a great time in Wotje! It was awesome and the Holy Ghost was moving. We went there at the request of the Full Gospel Churches to teach and preach. We arrived there on Tuesday morning and started on Tuesday afternoon. We got to minister eight times in four days. The Holy Ghost touched, encouraged and healed many that attended the services. We ministered on life and life more abundantly on Thursday and the Holy Ghost gave joy to everyone that need it! We serve an awesome God that takes care of His people all over the world.

The pastor of the church there is Will Lakior and his wife Carmen. In the picture above you see a picture of Pastor Will and his head deacon Anjain. The church there is making an impact on many lives. This a church that is on the move. Last year this was the church that asked us to come and speak on cults. We went there and found out that the Mormons wanted to build a church there. Well, guess what, the mormon man and wife who wanted to build a mormon place now attends the Full Gospel church! Praise God they are being changed by the Spirit and by the Word. The demonstration of the Word and the power of God further established their new found faith. Halleluiah! Our God is mighty and Pentecost is still happening here in the Marshall Islands.

Please keep the church there in prayer. There is much witchcraft there on Wotje and Pastor Will is on the attack. Many times Pastor Will has cast out devils there on Wotje. Praise God, the name of Jesus still works today. This Pastor is full of the Holy Ghost and fire and is helping to change a nation for Jesus. On the natural side they have not had rain since the last week of December. Water supplies are low. They have some shallow water wells and that supplies drinking water and water to cook with. They have not had a supply ship in over a month so many food supplies are low. The supply ship that normally runs there is not working and has not made a supply run since December. Please keep them lifted up. However they continue to give God the glory and see Him provide them with everything that they need! With everything that is going on, it is great to know that the Gospel is being preached, people are being set free and filled with the Holy Ghost all over the Marshall Islands.

Whats Going On?


What has been going on!

Since our last post we have had Christmas and New Years go by. We had an awesome Christmas celebrating Jesus with the Full Gospel Churches. It started at 10:00 AM and went until 6:00 AM the next morning. Wow! It was an awesome time just praising and worshiping the Lord. I want to tell you the Marshallese really know how to celebrate Jesus.

Two days after Christmas I was on my way to the US. I attended the conference in Orlando Florida with Missionary Ventures International. It was a great time of sharing our vision with other missionaries around the world. I also had time to see family while I was there and of course attend our home church Winter Haven Worship Center. While I was gone, Shawn and the boys finished organizing the house and work on the school while I was away. They of course started school while I was in the US. We have 48 students now and they are doing great. Shawn of course is right on top of things. We serve such an awesome God. She is a great principle and teacher and of course we have four Holy Ghost school teachers working with us.

The boys are doing well. Travis, Stephen and Richard are attending the school. Travis is no longer working downtown. He is now our maintenance engineer here on the compound. God is so good all of the time. We are truly amazed at His goodness. The payments for the compound are on time and we are believing God for a speedy and quick payoff of what we owe. We serve a mighty God and He can do what man says is impossible. Thank you for all of your prayers and support. If you wish to contact us please email us at Clarkmvimi@hotmail.com

May you always prosper even as your soul prospers! May you be blessed in all that you do.
