God is rocking it here!
God brought me back to why we are here last week. While reading a book suggested by Paul Gotthardt (Lead Pastor at Life Baptist Church Las Vegas), I became disturbed at my lack of results and my struggle with why we were here. Paul was gracious to remind me that we are not here to start a church but that we are here to make disciples and the church will be birthed from making disciples. He reminded me that no where in scripture is it mandated for us to start churches. Matt. 28:18-20 shows this mandate clearly. So, with great relief, I am attempting to make disciples. So far God has given me 2 Chuukese leaders in Waianae to lead weekly and is opening up doors for more disciples here in Kapolei. God is good ya'll.
Michelle and the kids are doing great. Michelle and I had our first date since we moved here. We went to Tony Roma's (Thanks Dave Bickers for showing me this place in Orlando) Saturday night and had ribs. They were incredible. God is giving us favor with my family and we are spending a great amount of time with my sister Sarah (which my kids adore). Pray for her as she graduates from the University of Hawaii next week and then heads to Germany for a year in August. Pray for her life and Christ's life to intersect in a most incredible way.
Also pray for a mother's day thing Michelle and I are doing with the moms connected to the teams I coach. We are hoping they will receive a gift from us that would allow us to deepen our relationship with them and possibly invite them to our bible study starting June 14th.
Finally, God brought a relationship with a gentlemen in the most incredible way. He is the director of the Veteran's Association to Homeless for the State of Hawaii and California. I am hoping that he comes to Christ and that we can serve the Vets through him.
