Renovation Time!

 Good day from the islands!  We have a great summer so far.  Summer school is going well and the students are excelling.  We are in the process of changing and rearranging things we are doing here in the islands.  When we were doing maintenance on one of our trailers we found that it is unsafe to use at this time.
  As many of you know we were blessed by the Japanese government with a new building two years ago.  It has been awesome and totally energy efficient.  Needless to say we have cut back our classes to smaller numbers.  This has happened because of several reasons not including loss of the trailer.
  The Lord clearly spoke to Shawn and I to downsize the school.  In doing this we will turn it over to our staff.  They will be running the school, that way Shawn is free to minister with me throughout the islands.  We will still be involved in oversight and administration but day to day operations are taken care of!  Praise the Lord!
  So what is the plan for the trailer.  It is to make it into a smaller classroom by cutting it in half.  One half will be an outdoor teaching/break area.  The other end will be a small special education/computer lab.  Now we are in process of gutting it to do the work.  We certainly have stepped out in faith on this one.  We believe it will take about $3,000 to complete the renovation.
  We thank God everyday for His provision for our ministry here in the islands.  Change is a part of everyday life and we must change to flow with the plan!  If you would like to help us out on this project you can contact us at rikakisteve@gmail.com or go to www.pacificmissionary.com to find out how.  Thank you all so much for your faithful prayers and support.  Blessings in the mighty name of Jesus!

Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Richard, Travis, Malissa, Stephen, Terina and Kanani
