From 2007 to today, the Lord has been faithful in His promises to me since He saved me from a homeless life on the beach of Waikiki. Who would ever imagine that He would call me back 33 years later. It has now been 44 years and still He keeps me in this ministry. This has been my hearts desire since I was saved, to be able to give the love and aloha back that they gave me when I was in despair. There is so much to learn about worship and the love the Lord bestows to those who love and worship him in one accord. Even the poorest people to the richest come together to praise our Lord and Savior. From worship hula to playing music and songs, to signing. We all come together and worship the one who has made us His church.

Our outreach consist of going to hospitals, convelescent homes, women's prison , feeding the homeless both physical and spiritual food. handing out toiletries that we ship through the year to the island, make blankets,hats,and slippers. Also, we always remember all the kids. lots of families have been driven out of their homes from overpriced taxes.

Philippians 3:14 , "Press on toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."

 

Now that the new year is here, I would like to introduce the plans for this years trip. The Lord had closed a few doors but has opened new ones in place of them. When we were there last September, we spent most of the day sorting into large tubs all the toiletries and items we had accumulated through the years to give the women's pregnancy shelter, men's prison and several homeless shelters. That trip was not just for outreach, but a time of reflection and renewal since the passing of our ministry team leader. This why the Lord had given us the word,"IMUA!", which means to press on.

 

This year I will be doing several fundraisers as my finances are extremely limited this year and the Lord continues to call me forth to do His work in Oahu, Hawaii. One of my fundraisers is a GoFundMe page.  I will send notices for other fundraisers through the coming time till September. The Hawaii Mission trip dates this year is September 27 - October 9, 2018. My focus this year is also becoming more educated on the Hawaiian people and their culture. Also, to become more unified with my partners in the worship and the love of Christ in worship hula. "A Ua Halawai Hou", Until we meet again. Aloha Ke Akua in Jesus name.

2018 Fundraising Update

 

Aloha and Mahalo to all that were part of this year’s great fundraising for Hawaii Missions.

The results from the raffle were great and I’m truly blessed by each and every person that contributed. I raised over $500.00, which completely covered the end of my expenses for this trip.

Calvary Chapel Tampa, you are the bomb!!! God is soooo good and He is forever to be praised in the glory of this outreach!
 

May the Lord bless each and every person to beyond expectations. I truly love you all and ask to keep me in prayer on this awesome journey with Jesus. I want to always be a true fisher of men, women and children.

Mahalo and Aloha Ke Akua,
