Celebrating Christmas!


Good day from Majuro, Marshall Islands.  I hope that your Christmas has been an awesome time celebrating Jesus and family.  As many of you know Shawn and Richard are in the states for the holidays.  Shawn traveled back to be with Malissa and Travis for the birth of their daughter Tatianna! Hopefully I spelled it right.  She was born on the 21st of December so needless to say she was the best Christmas present of all this year.

As for me here in the islands it was a great time as well.  On Christmas eve our church, Majuro International English Church, (MIEC), had our Christmas eve service.  It was filled with joy and songs.  Our children's department did an awesome job with their program.  It was wonderful to see them share Jesus with family and friends.  There were other songs as well and a big thank you to all who participated.


 Even our neighbors came and sang for the church as well.  Glory to God.  A big thank you to sister Lavini, sister Janet and all of those who had a part making it an awesome night.







Christmas day members of the church met at the hospital to start our day.
We went into the children's ward and the new born area singing carols and praying for the mother's, families and children.  We also blessed all of them with Christmas goodies.  Afterwards we went to the jail were we sang to the men, blessed them with gifts and prayed for them.  They were so happy to have someone come there on Christmas to share Jesus with them.  We look forward to new opportunities of ministering there in 2016.

Finally, we head back to the church.  There we put together 30 baskets of food for the families of our children who attend the church.  From there we went to 30 houses in the name of Jesus blessing the families.
It is so awesome to be able to bless others on Christmas day.  That is what it is all about.  We have found, as the word says in Romans, that it is the goodness of God that lead men to repentance.  As we continue to share the love of God with others we will reap a harvest.





I hope that your Christmas was as awesome as ours.
What a blessing to serve the Lord here in the Marshall Islands.  Of course a big thank you to all of MIEC who were part of blessing others this year.

God bless you and may you new year be filled with Jesus.  Thank you for your faithful prayers and support.

Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn and family
Majuro, Marshall Islands
