Upcoming Mission Trips

As the spring is coming up we are in the process of planning several trips to the outer islands. The Lord spoke to our hearts last summer and told us that this year we needed to focus on the outer islands. I came to the disciples and let them know what the Lord had spoken to me. Since then I have been to Ebeye and Wotje and seen the power of God move there. People being healed and set free by the power of God. Both of those trips were just myself and a couple of people. The disciples have been steadily raising funds for our trips to the outer islands. We currently are planning five trips over the next few months.
These trips are to help the pastor there through evangelism, preaching and teaching. I am not the main speaker but it will be the disciples that are doing the work. We have divided our team into children, youth and adults and will be ministering to the whole community. They will be going house to house sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, laying hands on the sick and casting out devils. We are going to the outer islands in the power of the Spirit led by the Holy Ghost. I asked the class to sign up if they wanted to go with me. All of them, thirty disciples said we will go with you.
Many of these trips will be by ship. Sleeping on the deck of a ship in open ocean yet they have counted the cost and want to come. In some places there may be an opportunity for them to stay and start a church. Without hesitation they have said if the Lord needs us there we will stay. One of the atolls I have not been to yet is the atoll of Likiep. For two years now I have thought and prayed about that place. Sunday morning the Lord spoke through a Word of prophecy to one of the disciples. He then stood and told us that his father had contacted him from Likiep. The church there is closing and they need someone to come. He had heard about our ministry and CTC. He asked his son when can they come we need them now. This disciple and his wife have a call of God on their lives. They both are preachers already. Standing before the church on Sunday morning he told the church that when we go there he and his wife will stay and start a church. Praise the Lord! What passion and dedication to the things of God. Willing to give it all to serve the Lord.
Would you like to help us reach the outer islands? Right now we are planning trips to Arno Arno, Langnaar, Utrik, Wotje, Ebeye and Likiep. We need your help in prayer and in support. Please pray and see what the Lord would have you do. Some of these places are only reachable by boat. Many of them the churches have closed because the pastor got discouraged and gave up. We are raising a generation to go back to the outer islands to reach a forgotten people. Will you stand alongside us and help us go? All of your gifts are tax deductible. If you would like to be a part of what God is doing here in the Marshall Islands please contact us at:
Thank you so much for all of your faithful prayers and support!
Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard
