Scooter Men

In a land where everything is brought in by ship things can be expensive. Gas here is now over $7.00 a gallon. Our gas prices do not fluctuate with the market. It really depends on what it costs when the shipment is loaded on to the ship bringing it here to the Marshall Islands. Well here is a picture of Travis and Stephen already doing their part to save gas and cut operational expenses. They are both using scooters to go to work and school. Not pictured are me and my scooter. At this point by using scooters we have cut our operational budget by $600.00 a month. This is now used to preach the Gospel and get much need resources to the people here. It also will help to keep our radio station on the air.
I want to make one point perfectly clear. We here in the Marshall Islands are not defeated or living in lack. Our God supplies everything we need to accomplish the vision and mission here in the Pacific. What we are doing is called “Stewardship”. Plain and simple! Every seed that is sown into this ministry is used to further the Kingdom of God. We are just finding ways to help divert every seed into a place that will produce fruit. When the world changes we are flexible, we adapt and we always overcome in the name of Jesus. The world’s economy may change but God never changes and He will always give us the victory as we walk with Him. Thank you for all of your faithful prayers and support. May God bless you even as your soul prospers!

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