First Leg Finished!

Good day from Port Vila, Vanuatu!  God has certainly opened up doors during our trip.  We have completed the first half of our trip and are now in Port Vila.  We started on 29 May with our first stop in Brisbane, Australia.  We had a couple of days there before our flight into Honiara, Solomon Islands.  We were met there by Kelevi Rocqui and his wife Sereana!  It was an awesome couple of days connecting with them and hearing about their ministry there.  They are pastoring the Omega International Church there in Brisbane.  God is using this couple in an awesome way.  Kelevi and his wife travel through the pacific teaching and sharing the Gospel.  While I was there they certainly took care of me.  

 On June 1st we were off to Honiara, Solomon islands.  We were greeted by brother Divine's family and moved to where we would be staying.  We stayed at Kingdom Harvest Church's dormitories.  It was great.  Sunday morning we attended service at Kingdom Harvest Church and had some time to share what God has placed on our heart.  There was a great word preached by brother Jonathon on staying connected to God!  Awesome word.  

The Kingdom Harvest Church also runs a school and truly touching a nation for God!

That night we attended a combined men's service at an Anglican church called, "All Saints".  It was awesome, they are in renewal (pentecost)!  It is the first Anglican church I have been in with a praise and worship band.  It was awesome as men from several churches came to worship the Lord.  We shared the word with them and was truly blessed to be with them.

Throughout the week we were busy.  God is certainly opening doors in the Solomons.  We also had times of fellowship with Divine's family and Janet's family as well.  It was great meeting their families on the trip.

 Thursday we met with the Pacific Asia Evangelistic Association.  A group that is dedicated to sharing the Gospel in the pacific and asia.  We met with them and discussed future opportunities for ministry in the Solomons.  Great connection there.  

Thursday night we were at the Kai Bia church an international church that is on fire for God.  What an awesome time in the Lord.  Praise and worship was awesome and we ministered the Word on "Change" and the Spirit certainly was and is moving in that church.

The Holy Spirit is definitely moving in the Solomons.  Denominational walls are being broken down and unity is forming among the churches.  All based on the Word, Spirit, Faith and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We certainly look forward to going there again. 

During this second week we look forward to the connections that are going to be made.  God is pouring out His Spirit among the islands of the Pacific.  Thank you for partnering with us in the Gospel and for those who have helped with the support for the trip.  We thank God for all your faithful prayers and support.  If you would like to give toward the ministry here in the pacific just go to our web site listed below and go to the link "Get involved"!  God bless and have a super day in the Jesus!

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