Things are Happening here in the Islands!

Even though summer time is here, things keep on moving here in the islands. Construction, repairs, renovation and conferences are just a few of the things that are happening. As you can tell from the photos we are busy here on the compound. The new classrooms are getting close to completion, with painting going on and plumbing work happening.


In the other photos you can see Shawn and crew, scraping walls and renovating an old classroom into an office. It has been a major job peeling off the old paint but it is looking awesome. We are moving our office there to be closer to the classrooms and to clear space in our radio room. In other photos, you can see pictures of the desks being made for the new classrooms. Our carpenter, Thor, has been busy building these desks. You cannot run out and buy them here, you have to make them. He and Shawn have come up with a very efficient design. It is very sturdy and will last a long time.
Also in the photos you can see a picture of the inside of our white bus. The floor had begun to rust through and we had to repair it. So, using what we have here on the islands we laided down ¾ inch plywood for the new floor. It should be done first of the week and back on the road. The silver bus also needs repairs. Our clutch master cylinder has went out. There are currently no parts here on the island. We had to order a set from a dealer here on the islands and hope to have it repaired soon.
Tomorrow we start the youth conference followed by the women’s conference the following week. We will post updates and photos throughout the conferences. Agree with us for lives to be changed as these believers from all over the islands come together to seek the Lord!

Please agree with us in prayer for two new buses and the provision to make things happen over the next 30 days. We are believing God for 3,000 above our operating expenses to come in within the next 30 days. We know that God can and will do it. Join together with us in prayer and if God moves on your heart to help in any area of our ministry contact us at rikakisteve@gmail.com
Thank you so much for all of your faithful prayers and support. You truly are our partners here in the islands. Be blessed in the name of Jesus!

Running with the Vision,

Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard

Sarah Pitts Visits US Here in the Islands

Sarah Pitts was a recent visitor here with us in Majuro.  Sarah came and spent about 8 days with us spying out the land.  She and her husband Drew are praying about coming and joining with us here in the work.  Sarah spent the week with Shawn getting the lay of the land.  Drew and Sarah are both recent graduates from Rhema Bible Training Center.  Please keep them in your prayers as they receive direction from the Lord.  Thanks Drew for letting your wife come and visit with us here.
