Christian Motocycle Association!


Four years ago a couple of men came and visited the Marshall islands.  One was Steve Beam and the other was the president of the Christian Motorcycle Association (CMA), John Ogden Sr.  During that visit several things happened.  One was that CMA saw the need for a boat to help the outer islands.  Within just a few months CMA had provided a boat to help in the outer islands.
  The second thing that happened, happened after a Sunday morning service.  While sitting around the table after lunch with several pastors, John asked how he could help them.  Pastor Ronald mentioned that they would like to have the Jesus film in the Marshallese language.  John said they could do it!  Four years later John, a man of his word returned with the movie in the Marshallese language!
  We want to thank John Ogden Sr and all of the members of the Christian Motorcycle Association for not only this great tool but for all they are doing around the world!  This organization is involved in the Jesus Film project and in providing motorcycles to Pastors around the world!  This is a first class Holy Ghost organization dedicated to spreading the Gospel.  Of course they are reaching out to bikers around the world!  Stop by and check out their web site for details www.cmausa.org
  Once again a big thank you to John and all of the CMA for helping us reach the people of the Marshall Islands!

Jesus Film in Marshallese!


Last week we had the privilege of premiering the Jesus film in Marshallese here in the Majuro.  We showed it on Friday and Saturday nights.  The first showing was at Rairok Full Gospel church and the second showing was at the Salvation Army’s building.  Over 1000 people saw the film the first time in Marshallese!  We are so excited about having this new tool to share the Gospel here in the Marshall islands.
We also had several guests here from the US and New Zealand for the showings.  A big thank you to Chris and LuAnne Mcquirk, Lynn and Nancy Mayfield, Matt Anderson, Chase Henry, Adam Jones, Doug Sarver and John Ogden Sr.  It was a privilege to have them here.  They are from different organizations all supporting the Jesus film project!  Praise the Lord for their faithfulness and dedication to share the Gospel around the world.  You can find out more about the Jesus film project at, http://www.jesusfilm.org/


This team also brought us another tool with the film.  They have given us a backpack full of equipment to show the Jesus film anywhere.  The backpack includes a project, sound system, screen, battery and a solar panel.  That means power or no power it does not matter it is a totally self contained system.  Praise the Lord!  And yes that is the projector that you see in my hand!  That means wherever we travel in the out islands we can show the film to the people.  We give all the glory and praise to the Father for this great tool to share the Gospel.  Once again thank all of you for your faithful prayers and support as we share the Gospel here in the Marshall Islands.
