"When we work, we work. When we pray, God works."-Hudson Taylor
Hello, friends and fellow prayer warriors! Joshua and I are so thankful for those of you who meet us here in prayer. We believe God works in the prayers of His people, and you joining us in this important work is encouraging beyond words!
As an update from last week’s “Monday 3,” we were able to start up GivingFuel to streamline our missions support opportunities. Praise God! Also, our boards got to Wyoming & NC safely, and ideas and plans for giveaways and discipleship are already taking shape. We’ve also seen the undeniable hand of God’s favor as we’ve been teaching through 1L’s core values to youth in Pukalani Baptist Church’s Awana program and at two Christian schools on Maui.
Thank you again for joining us in prayer and praising God with us! Now, here’s this week’s “Monday 3” with details in italics:
1) Upcoming Wyoming/Colorado Trip
-Partnerships with Auburn and Harvest Church in Wyoming
-Wisdom cultivating 1L in Honduras
-Divine focus and perseverance in developing the 1L book during Joshua’s week of unpaid leave from Waipuna Chapel
2) 1L Trainings & Curriculum
-Wisdom for who to partner with and how much to take on in crafting messages of God’s One Love (possible 90 chapel services)
-Creativity with music, messages, and multimedia to take #OneLoveToTheNations
-Praying God’s provision of the right house for family raising and 1L running
-Continued wise counsel and open doors from family and friends
Thanks again for lifting us up in prayer! God is moving: confirming, encouraging, and opening more and more opportunities to share His One Love. You walking with us on this journey helps us remember it’s all worth it! Hugs!

2/19/18 - Monday 3: 1L Decks; 1L Reps; Mission Support
What a packed week! Last week, we had four 1L opportunities including an event with Seabury Middle School at Kalama Skatepark, tag-teaming Awana clubs at Pukalani Baptist, and speaking engagements at Maui Christian Academy as well as Doris Todd Elementary School. Thanks for lifting us up in prayer last week to help us in our mission!
- We praise God that we were #ShoulderToShoulder with great people for each event. Riley from Calvary Chapel South Maui joined us for the Seabury Event Tuesday, we worked with a great team from Pukalani Baptist as Joshua & Nicole partnered to share the 1L of Jesus on Valentine's Day Wednesday Night, Pastor Kaipo and Sam both joined Joshua for Maui Christian Academy Thursday morning, and Pastor Kaipo and Joshua tag-teamed Doris Todd Elementary Chapel Friday morning. Although we are tired adjusting to full-time ministry at Waipuna with the full-time ministry of One Love Skate and not knowing what's next regarding our housing on Maui, we know God's hand is all over our lives, and we are stoked to see revival on Maui.
Here are the Monday 3 this week with more details in italics:
1.) 100 New 1L Decks shipped out today to Wyoming, NC, and Maui
- 1L Reps to be discipled through local churches to do the ministry of 1L by giving away skateboards and starting life groups in their communities.
2.) Training New 1L Reps in Hawaii
- Prayer for two 1L Reps at all 5 Maui skateparks; 1L Skate, Surf, Leader Training School with Sam Peralta and the Embassy Maui; More events with Maui Skateboard Series that build relationships and help us share the 1L with more people.
3.) 1L Mission Support
- Prayers for new churches and ministry partners, working to raise additional $2911.58 monthly support for the mission, GivingFuel Page and wise accountants to receive and manage funds efficiently, expressing thankfulness to financial supporters and board of directors, and wisdom to communicate the right information to the right people the right way.
Thanks for lifting us up as we are definitely running on fumes at the beginning of this week after busy weeks of ministry. Stoked to see what the Most High will do!

2/12/18 - Monday 3: Housing, 1L Reps, & Seabury Event in Kihei
Happy ides of February, 1L Prayer Warriors! Thank you for joining us in prayer for this weeks Monday 3:
God, You know our every need. You are a good, good Father! We continue to lift up our need for housing here on Maui. We know You moved us here, and we know You provide more than we could ever ask or imagine. We continue to trust You with the perfect place you have for our family of 5. Give us the strength to keep walking by faith and not by sight, and especially help Joshua and Nicole rely on You in the process.
2) 1L Reps
Jesus, this vision to have 1L Reps at all 5 skate parks on Maui is from You. We believe You’ve been working to meet us in this area as we walk in obedience. Your favor and blessings are more than we could ask or imagine! Thank You for the partnership with Aloha Skateboards and all they’re doing to help get our 1L boards shipped to Maui. We lift up the new board design. We pray You’ll use it to draw skaters into conversations of eternal significance.
3) Seabury Event
Thank You, Lord for this opportunity to be in this world and not of it as we partner with Seabury to teach students more about skateboarding. You’ve divinely appointed every student that we’ll be in contact with tomorrow, and we ask that they’d see Jesus in us. Give us creativity and favor as we connect with them and point them to You.
We pray all these things in Jesus’ powerful name; Amen!
- Nicole & Joshua Marburger, One Love Missionaries
p.s. From Joshua: (The 1L speaking opportunity at Maui Christian Academy was amazing last week with insight from Stevie L in Australia, we are making more progress on the #LiveOneLove book, and we have 2 more #OneLoveSkate speaking opportunities in addition to some events this coming week). Times are busy, but we're enjoying the ride with the fam, Waipuna Chapel & 1L. If anyone is interested, I've been posting some coaching videos on the Life Groups page of WaipunaChapel.com and just posted one today. Thanks so much for your prayers and for all you do to help us #LiveOneLove, prayer warriors!
2/5/18 - Monday 3: Speaking Opps, 1L Discipleship, & Events
For this of you like me, who just have no idea where the first month of 2018 went, enjoy this quote I heard from a friend yesterday: “February is the new January!” Haha! #YoureWelcome
Thanks for joining us here for this week’s Monday 3:
1) Speaking Opportunities
Thank You, Lord for the opportunities you send our way to share your One Love; the only saving and life giving love. We lift up our time at Doris Todd Christian Academy. Give us the words to say to inspire and impact lives for eternity. May Your word break through the monotony of school-life and change these students with Your love. Thanks also for the way You’re orchestrating speaking opportunities on the mainland this spring and summer. We know You are in the details, God. We trust You to bring together what would make You most famous. Your will be done.
2) 1L Discipleship
Wow, praise You God for the way You are using Your disciples to make disciples! Thank You for the new 1L Rep applicants. We pray You would move in their hearts to live your one love, Jesus. Grow this ministry for Your name sake. May One Love Skate be a handle people can hold onto, a tool that You use to draw people to Yourself.
3) 1L Events
God, You provide. Thank You! May the skateboards that were given away in HI, NC, CO, & Honduras this and last month be used to encourage skaters to know and love You. We praise You for using 1L to share Your good news. We pray You would continue to bless us with favor to keep having these events and please continue to open doors for us to be able to give skateboards away for Your glory around the world.
In Jesus’s name we pray; Amen!
In the One Love of Jesus (1 John 4:9),
