Back in Majuro

Good day from the Marshall Islands.  We returned back to Majuro on the 2nd of February and it has been non stop since our return.  We thank God for what He is doing around the world.  We had an awesome time in the US and are so thankful for opportunity to share our vision there.  We returned on Saturday morning and Sunday we were back at Majuro English Assembly.  The Spirit was moving and lives were changed.  The church did not miss a beat while we were gone.  The Board and leaders kept everything on track by the Spirit and the church continues to grow.

While we in the states we also able to work on some equipment possibilities for our radio station here in the islands.  Currently our equipment would cost us about 1600 in electricity cost per month.  With the new equipment we are looking at about 200 a month.  Praise the Lord!  We will keep you advised as this develops it is exciting.  Christian Training Center started back up this week and we currently teaching on covenants.  It is so wonderful to see these young men and women training to serve the kingdom of God!  God is so good.Last Friday night we "Open Mic Night"!  This is a time where youth from different churches around Majuro come together to worship the Lord.  Over 200 were in attendance.  We had six speakers, five churches there, praise, worship, people getting saved and Jesus being lifted up higher.  We so that God for what he is doing.  Not only was it several churches in attendance but several nations represented as well.  Praise the Lord!  God is so good.

Shawn, Richard, Stephen, Terina and Kanani are all doing well.  Shawn and the staff handled the time while I was gone with no problems.  I thank God for the staff of ACA who give 100 percent everyday to the school.  It is an honor to work with them and see them share the love of Jesus every day with the children.  Glory to God!
We want to thank God for His provision on a daily basis.  He continually amazes us in the ways that He provides.  I love serving the Lord!  All of our expenses for the trip have been covered and we were certainly blessed.  We thank you all for your faithful prayers and support.  As many of you know we have been praying for several nations to the south of us.  We have been believing God for open doors to go there and share the word.  Well, that time is finally come with consistent transportation opening up.  Praise the Lord, we will give you more on this as the doors open up.  We are also planning trips into Wotje and Ebeye in the coming months.  Please keep our trip planning in your prayers.

Pray Requests and Needs:
1.  Agree with us for more opportunities to share the Gospel here in the islands.
2.  Agree with us for wisdom on our schedule.
3.  Provision to reroof the church and move the wall to expand our main sanctuary
4. Visas to be approved and connections in the nations to the south
5. Drum set for the church
6. Agree with us for two new buses for the school and church

Right now Shawn and I are believing for 5000.00 to kick start or remodeling of the church with the roof redone and the wall moved.  This will open up an area for the harvest that is coming in.  The roof has to be redone because of the church leaking during the rainy times and leaking especially into our children's area.  We thank God in advance because where there is vision there is provision.
Finally we want to announce our new web site.  You can find it at www.missionary-ventures.org !  From there you can read our blogs, find out more about us and there is a way also to give electronically.  Just check out get involved on the web site.
Once again as always thank you for your faithful prayers and support….  May you prosper in all that you do for the kingdom of God.

Running with the vision,
Steve, Shawn, Richard, Stephen, Terina and Kanani
