January Update!

 

Good day from Florida. It has been a great trip so far. We were blessed last week by attending the Missionary Ventures International conference in Orlando, Florida. It was so awesome to see and hear what God is doing around the world. It was also a time of refreshing and prayer as those from around the world gathered here at the conference.

 

Sunday we were at our home church, Winter Haven Worship Center! It was awesome to be there in our home church. A big thank you to Pastor Jeff and Kim Connor and all the church for your faithful prayers and support over the years.

There is also a lot going on in the islands. Shawn and Richard are busy as ever. Richard is in college finishing up his degree and is doing great. Shawn is continually working in the church and the school. The ministry never stops even when one of us is away. Yesterday, our time, they had extreme high tides once again. This time the water even came into our cook house. Today they will be getting sand bags ready to block the water from coming in. These tides are projected to go for the next couple of days. Please keep the Marshall Islands in your prayers for the next couple of days as they go through this time.

Last week Shawn and the family were in an accident. Another driver backed into our bus and damaged the front end. It looks from the picture that the frame may be bent. It looked like it was totaled but I have now been informed that they may be able to repair it. We were fortunate the other driver had insurance and the National Police are cooperating with us in every area. So things are progressing in that area. Shawn and the family are fine, no one was injured. We thank God for our bus that is used heavily in ministry and is our sole means of transportation. We have been know for sometime that it is getting to the end of its life span. Please agree with us in prayer for the repairs and for a new bus for the ministry in the Marshall Islands.

As for me it looks like I will be here now until the 19th of February. I will be getting some medical and dental things done while I am here. Please agree with me for divine connections and for doors to be opened for ministry. I thank God for all that He is doing around the world. God bless you and have a great day in the name of Jesus.

Running with the Vision,

Steve, Shawn and family
