Ajeltake Christian Academy and more!

Here are some class pictures of our students from this year. We are so fortunate to be able to provide education for these young people. The school has three full time teachers and of course the principal (Shawn). We are constantly being asked do we have any more slots for more students. It is awesome to know that the word is out.
This year is a year that God is expanding our ministry here in the Marshall Islands. As the vision grows so does the need for people to come along side us here in the islands. We are currently believing God for more personnel. We need not only personnel for the School but also for the Christian training Center (Pastors and Leaders). So we would like for you to agree with us in prayer for the following:

2 teachers for Ajeltake Christain Academy (K-12)
2 Teachers for the Christian Training Center (Pastors and Leaders)
1 Administrator/assistant to help us in our expanding ministry here in the Pacific.

We know that God supplies all of our needs when we are faithful to pray. We also know that the power of agreement in prayer moves the hand of God. We have seen so many times God move here in the islands. Just like you see Him work and answer prayers in your life. We are so thankful for all of His blessing and favor in everything. We can not give Him enough praise and worship for everything that He does all over the world. We appreciate all of you so very much. Once again please stand in agreement with us and watch God move!

Steve Shawn and the boys

Rain in the Islands


Praise the Lord for rain. Well for about the last 48 hours we have had rain off and on. The catchments are filling and the plants are happy. We thank God that He is always on time. We serve a God who is more than enough. We are here to give God praise for the abundance of rain that is coming to the Marshalls in the natural and the supernatural.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers for rain here in the islands. This is only a start, but it has taken care of many local needs. We are still believing God for the rain to come and fill up all of the storage facilities here on Majuro and the outer islands. The main atoll catchment here had got down to less than 1 million gallons. That is not even one day of use for here on Majuro. That is for the downtown and some outlying areas only. We here on the compound and our neighbors depend on catching our rain. So as the rain fills us up, we are giving God all of the praise. My you prosper even as your soul prospers.

No Worries! God is on our Side!

Hello again, Things are a little Brown as you can see!

Well the government of the Marshall Islands is appealing for international aid because of the drought. Water levels here on Majuro, have dropped to a three day supply. As I stand outside and look around I do not see the rain. I am so glad that faith does not rely on my sight. It is not a matter of what we feel it is a matter of believing. In the middle of a drought we say, no worries God is on our side.

He will not let His people down. The Word says "If my people, who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, I will hear and heal their land"! Praise God for the Word of God that gives us strength when things look bad. We are not overcome by fear because that spirit is not from God. God has given us a Spirit of Love and of Power and a sound mind! Praise God we are not crazy, we are believers. We have a hope and a promise and praise God, He always hears our prayers.

Even with all the forecasts, two new churches were started this week in the Northern Islands. The Islands of Ailu and Utrik have new churches starting. Even with water supplies in the danger zone two young pastors and their families moved north. Pastors Tirok and Anju are on the move for God. They did not wait for the perfect time, plenty of rain and everything perfect. They moved becuase the Spirit of God told them to. No worries, God is with us.

In life it will never be the perfect time to do something for God. We have to move when the Spirit says move. Those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God! Be led by the Spirit in every area of your life. Remember No Worries, God is with YOU!!!!!!!

Running Again! Praise the Lord

Here is a picture of the white van. We want to report that it is back on the road. We thank God for the mechanics that He has lined us up with. They searched for the last week to find the right part (the timing chain) and they did. God is so good! With the white horse back on the road, CTC will start back up next week. The students have been so patient during this time. We want to thank all of you for believing God with us!

Moving Forward

Good day from the islands. The pictures you see are from Ajeltake Full Gospel church. I wanted to share with you what God is doing here on Majuro. In a place where the people earn only a few dollars a day, a church is being built. They started the church in 2004. Since the start they laid a floor and put up a roof but no walls and no windows. In 2005 they stopped moving forward. A little discouragement had set in. It seemed like the church would stop and just be a floor and a roof. In late 2006 the vision was resparked in Pastor Stanley's heart for the church. He started believing God by faith for the walls and the windows. What you see in the pictures are the walls going up. Cement and sand has been donated and the people are working on the church everyday. Little bit by little bit the vision is coming to pass. It is happening because the pastor is moving by faith. He is putting action to his faith knowing that God will provide what he needs to do the job.

This is such a testimony. In the middle of a drought with little water and lots of faith a church is being built. He is believing God for windows for his church and we believe with him that he will have them. God is such a good God. He is so faithful in all that He does. When He gives a vision He provides the provision. Pastor Glenn Ward said one time " we need to walk in provision everyday"! Miracles are wonderful but provision is better. It is so awesome to see men and women of God moving by faith around the world. It is faith that moves God not head knowledge. We all need to take a lesson and remember that as James said "Faith without works is Dead!!!!!!!!

We all have projects and things to accomplish for the Lord. It is time that we partner with the vision of our pastors and make it happen. This is not the time to hold back and look at circumstances, but this is a time to move forward in faith and watch God move on behalf of His people.
