Whats Going on in the Life of the Ward's
This Blog is my quarterly update's on what's happening in our life
What's Been Happening
Remember my life is lived in quarter's because I run schools. This last quarter I co-lead my 3rd Discipleship Training School and 5th school in a little over two years. Needless to say I am a bit exhausted, but its worth it all!!!
With each school I find myself amazed as it continues to bare more and more fruit. We really have an emphasis on church planting with these outreaches and we are so excited to see what happens. The gospel is being preached and the kingdom of Heaven advances! This last school I had 71 students and over 20 staff, and in the next few days I am about to send out 9 teams in 10 different nations. (
As well as running and teaching in my own school I taught and ministered in two other DTS's here in Kona as well as in Honolulu and our Fire and Fragrance plant in Harrisburg, PA. The Lord has given me grace and its taken a lot, but again so worth it!
I continue to seek the Lord for continued perspective and vision as well as wisdom how to live a life style in ministry that is sustainable. It has been challenging emotionally and physically in many ways, but through it all the Lord teaches me of His faithfulness and love. With every challenger I overcome I know that I gain great authority to lead and love those God has entrusted to me.
Well on April 19th I head out on a little over 3 week journey to visit some of my outreach teams and teach. I am headed to France, Iceland, and Oregon to visit my outreach teams in those locations as well as speaking and ministering in other places. From Oregon I head to Tokyo, Japan to teach in a DTS there. In light of the current devastation in Japan I am very excited about going there. I return to Kona May 14 where the next day I speak in a DTS here then head over to Maui to teach and then maybe Honolulu as well. Whew.... I know. While doing all of that I will be apart of a leadership team planting a new school here in Kona "School of the Circuit Riders". I am so excited about this as I feel this may be the most epic school yet. Check it out at www.fireandfragrance.com, its open to everyone!
With everything I am doing there is always two areas I need your partnership in.
The the first one being prayer. I really need people to cover me in prayer with all I am doing and am involved in. Pray as you feel led. I hope to put together a prayer update e-mail soon. Let me know if you want to be on it.
The second being finances. With all this upcoming travel and increased expenses I need monthly supports as well as people willing to give towards certain things. The immediate need is for this upcoming trip and some of the materials needed for it. Please pray about giving. If you want the details of my need let me know. (info for giving at the bottom of the e-mail)
I hope to do much better in keeping you updated with testimonies, blogs and videos. I am trying to get a new more professional website made to help me do so, so I'll keep you updated with the amazing things happening.
Giving: cut and paste the link to give on online. If you want to send a check let me know and I will tell you how.
Blessings on you all and I hope to send you an update soon!
