THE LORD FAITHFULLY ANSWERED YOUR PRAYERS FOR JESUS LOVES YOU HONOLULU!:

  • We are so thankful as many came to the saving knowledge of Jesus at our outreaches to the needy during the week and at the evangelistic outreach at the Stan Sheriff Center! (even at the Prayer tent that night!)

  • Nearly 6,000 people were in attendance and the night rocked with music by The Katinas, Jaci Velasquez, her husband Nic Gonzales, and local group Olivia the Band!

  • Many volunteers played an integral part in seeing that things ran smoothly. Our heartfelt thanks to them!

  • 45 churches from across the island were involved in some way: either through attending, praying, bringing family & friends, or volunteering. Many expressed how this event brought the Body of Christ together that evening. Praise the Lord.

  • A combined hula group of over 40 women from several churches blessed all in attendance as they danced to "Upon This Rock" sung by Pastor Francis.

  • Some churches from the Waianae area car pooled 90 homeless people to the event. And over 50 gave their hearts to the Lord that night! They are now plugged into churches in their area.

  • Pastor Francis shared an awesome Gospel message and many people responded to the Good News. They filled the aisles as the eyes of their families were filled with tears of joy.

    We are so thankful for all the Lord did. THANK YOU JESUS!!!

    THE LORD FAITHFULLY ANSWERED YOUR PRAYERS FOR JESUS LOVES YOU WAIMANALO '10:

    His Provision

    We prayed for God’s provision and He came through....again! From the finances, to 1,250 donated hot dogs, to cans and cans of chili, to a giant tent, to discounts on “slush puppies”, to donations of hygiene gift kits and food, to hundreds of pieces of clothing, to chests of ice, to generators, to beautiful plants and flowers for our events—the Lord provided abundantly. And all we can do is humbly thank Him.

    The Weather

    It had been raining nearly all week, but God cleared the skies and it was an absolutely beautiful weekend. This is one of the many areas where we have learned to totally trust God. HE Is in control!

    Volunteers

    We had a great turn-out of volunteers who were more than eager to serve...with smiles. The volunteers set the tone for the day. They came early to set up tents, tables, chairs, and areas. And they stayed late to break it all down. In between, they treated our guests with love, joy, and kindness. We are so thankful for each and every one who gave of their time to others.

    Safety & Protection

    One of our prayers was that everyone would be kept safe, with no injuries and the Lord answered that prayer. There were no incidents. In fact, people remarked how great it was to let their kids run and enjoy the day without worrying about them. We are thankful for the Lord’s protection over the entire grounds.

    Physical Needs Met

    Through the distribution of goods to the homeless living on the beaches (they needed jackets & one of the donated boxes contained brand new jackets & sweatshirts!), under a bridge, and in transitional housing...we were able to bring the Lord’s love in a tangible way. Many people were blessed by all that was given to them in the Jesus’ Name.

    Spiritual Needs Met

    At the women’s and men’s outreaches, the free dinner and concert, and the children’s carnival, the Gospel was presented and many people...moms, dads, young adults, and kids responded. Please pray for their continued growth in Him.

    THE LORD HAS FAITHFULLY ANSWERED YOUR PRAYERS FOR JESUS LOVES YOU WAHIAWA!:

  • Many, many hearts were given to the Lord through the outreaches, Gospel presentations, and concert message. We are so thankful for all the Lord did to touch others with His great Love.

  • The Lord's Provision - As of two days before our event, we did not have the finances needed but the message of "TRUST GOD" filled out hearts and the Lord miraculously provided the needed funds!

  • The weather was perfect for each and every event!

  • There were many donations to make our outreaches possible from companies such as: Dovetail Ministries, Conrad Enterprises, Watanabe Florist, Fortress Eyewear, Fukunaga Products, Kaimuki Christian School, Maneline, the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel, Dole Pineapple, Menehune Water, Goveas, Kukui Sausage, Persen Farms, Koolau Distributors, and Kamaina Roll-off. We are so very grateful to them all.

  • Free Women's Brunch/Men’s Breakfast - The women met in a beautifully decorated room with yellow and green table settings as Jenene Ahia shared her gift of music and Patty shared the Word. The men met outdoors for a time of worship and a message by Pastor Francis. Both events were a great and encouraging time for all who attended.

  • Volunteer Training/Prayer/Distribution to Those in Need - The training geared us up for the week’s events. This was followed by a special time of prayer together. And then teams of people went out to bring hygiene gift kits, bags of rice, and sunglasses to those in need. It was a wonderful time of ministry as the Lord’s love was shared in a tangible and practical way. During the week, there was ministry to those living on the beaches of Waimanalo teaming up with Loaves & Fishes. The Jesus Loves You volunteers also went to those in need in Wahiawa. Pallets of school supplies were donated to a very grateful elementary school as the children gathered for an assembly featuring “Abounding Grace” rope jumpers. They were so excited and were invited to Saturday’s Free Keiki Carnival.

  • Free Dinner & Concert - There was a great turn-out as people lined up for a delicious dinner offered free of charge. Special music and inspirational hula followed. Pastor Francis then shared a gospel message and we saw many dedicate and re-commit their hearts to the Lord.

  • Free Keiki Carnival/Gospel Presentations - You could sense the excitement in the air as families arrived at the Keiki Carnival and enjoyed the rides, games, jumpers, face painting, crafts, & food (we ran out of hot dogs at 1,250!). Each and everything was free of charge! There was a food and clothing distribution center as well. Throughout the day everything closed down and the families enjoyed special presentations such as: Christian martial arts, an awesome magic show, and the rope jumpers. At each venue, the Gospel was presented and we saw many boys and girls, moms and dads respond to receive the Lord. And that’s what it is all about...bringing the love and hope of Jesus to others.
