Solar/Wind Power Needed!






Here in the Marshall Islands, we are still in a state of emergency. Fuel is still on hand at this time, but the government is not sure on the next shipments. Things could change radically in the next thirty to sixty days. One thing I want you to know, that is, that God has provided time and time again. He will continue to take care of us as we walk with him. It is our job though as good stewards to utilize every asset we have wisely. For example, we have cut our energy use in half, and our electricity cost are still over $1,000.00 a month. Energy and fuel prices have continued to climb. With an investment of $15,000 we will be able to be independent of local power. This cost covers solar panels, 3 wind generators, batteries and the miscellaneous equipment needed to provide the power that we need to run the house, radio station, and school. We have sold some equipment here for $3,500. We will now sell our car in the states to raise additional funds for the equipment. If you are interested in a 2004 Ford Taurus with low miles please contact us at clarkmvimi@ntamar.net or rikakisteve@gmail.com
Converting over to Solar and Wind will turn $1,000 back into other areas of the ministry. Within 15 months, the solar/wind generator system will have paid for itself. This is a huge savings that will help us build the Kingdom of God. We are believing for three more wind generators, one has already been sent and is on the way. If you would like to be a part of this please contact us. Here is what we are believing for:
10 100 watt solar panels $550.00 each
15 6 Volt Battery $400.00 each
3 Marine Wind Generators $800.00 each
__________
$13,900.00
miscellaneous parts $ 1,100.00
__________
$ 15,000.00
Other equipment we need such as wiring, inverters, and other miscellaneous parts varies in price and rates, but the above are the main items we need to get things moving. Please pray and agree with us that God will meet this need. Be blessed in all that you do and thanks for being our partners in the Gospel.
Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard

What size of biomass converter do you need?
A biomass converter is a container with bacteria and organic "waste" material in it. The bacteria is fermenting the organic "waste" material and releasing methane gas.
This methane gas is used in the same manner natural gas is.
The organic "waste" material is a locally available renewable resource.
Biomass converters are scalable.
They can be small enough to handle single houses. They can be large enough to handle regional waste water plants.
