Happy Holidays

Moving Forward with the Kingdom!

Happy Holidays to you all. I just wanted to give you all an update on things happening here in the islands. Shawn and the boys are now in Florida for the holidays. They are spending time with family and friends getting refreshed. While they are gone the ministry is still moving forward.
The school is on track and running smoothly. We continue to have favor with the people and the government. It is awesome to see God move here in the islands. This weekend we are so thankful for everything that God has done in our lives. We are especially grateful for being sent here to the Marshall Islands to minister to the people. We are also thankful for you our supporters who are partnering with us to spread the Gospel throughout the pacific.
2007 certainly has been a wonderful year but we know that 2008 will be great. God is continually opening up new doors for ministry here in the islands. We are now in the final phase of establishing our radio ministry and have partnered with the United Christian Broadcasters out of New Zealand. We are already planning on future training events.
We also have many projects in the works that we are believing God for. We need to build a generator room for our backup generator. We also need to build a sea wall, this is a major need right now. Land is precious here in the islands and we are losing some of it to the sea. We are also in the final stages of our boat project to support outer island pastors. We are waiting on the final funds to come in to complete the project. If you would like to help out in any of our projects please contact us (rikakisteve@gmail.com)
Even with the projects we have going on we continue to see God move in so many ways. Over and over again we have seen God come through for us. Today I would like to ask you, do you know someone who would like to know about what we are doing here in the islands? I receive many forwarded emails here in the islands from people all around the world. I would like to ask you, forward our links to other Christians who will partner with us in prayer and support. As our vision grows so does our need for provision but we are so happy that where there is vision there is provision. God will always make the vision happen. We are always looking forward to the next step that God would have us take. Be blessed and have a great holiday weekend.

Running with the Vision,Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard
