Conference Time!

The first two weeks of July was conference time here in the Marshall Islands!  Marshallese from the outer islands, Hawaii and the mainland all converged on Majuro to worship the Lord!  It was the 7th Full Gospel Conference! This year's theme was "Choose Today"!  Taken from Joshua 24:15, were Joshua challenged the people to choose who they would serve!  God or other gods!  Throughout the week lives were changed by powerful preaching and teaching.  Pastor Ronald Matthew and the pastors delivered awesome messages by the Holy Ghost.  As always it is a great joy to preach and teach alongside these men and women of God!
Many were changed but the Spirit of God throughout the week.  The Spirit continually challenged the people to make a choice in how they live there lives.  The second week of the conference was the pastors and leaders seminar.  Pastor Ronald, Pastor Anwi and myself taught throughout the week.  It was a great time of strengthening each other in the Lord for the work we are called to do!
This main conference is held every two years and this year I believe was the biggest I have attended.  The hunger of the people for the Word and the things of the Spirit was truly amazing.  All of us throughout the conference felt and urgency to preach the Gospel!  It is not a time to draw back but to push forward with building the kingdom!  We are truly in the last days!
  So today ask yourself, who am I serving?  Are you serving yourself or the true and living God!  I leave you with this verse!

Joshua 24:15: And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

"Thank you for your continued faithful prayers and support!"
