Josh & Nicole's 1L Year End Update | December 2016

Josh & Nicole's 1L Year End Update | December 2016

Click Video Below for a 2016 Update From Josh & Nic:

Aloha One Love Family & Friends,
Thank you for your support of this ministry with your prayers and finances! In 2016, God has provided finances, ramps, skateboards, office space, clothing, stickers, conversation cards, music, and people to rep the One Love of Jesus all over the world! We are so thankful to see #Sightings of His Hand at work this year.

This month, the federal government notified us that our "Arrow-up, Arrow-down, 1L Logo" is officially trademarked to our 501(c)(3), One Love Skate! We are thankful to have exclusive rights to this logo as we explain it's meaning: The 1L logo reminds us of the opportunity we have to receive the One Love of Jesus and be empowered to love God and love people.

We hope to see more skaters saved, baptized, and discipled to be One Love Skate Reps in 2017.

 

We have seen this happen in 2016, and nothing is more exciting to us than being able to help resource and equip people to do the ministry of One Love Skate in their communities!

If you can connect us with potential skate ministers in your community, please do!

This is a picture from our instagram with some Discipleship Guides that we printed out. Ministries can also print out these guides themselves via the link on our Leader Training of OneLoveSkate.org.

We are so thankful for all the ways God has worked and is continuing to work through One Love Skate, and we praise God for the joy He provides as we follow Him in this full-time calling.

You're invited December 17 | Kihei Skatepark | Sam Peralta Skate Update

Join us December 17 for another fun event with the County of Maui. 9:00am-12:00pm at Kalama Skatepark!

Update from Sam P:
This term I have been going out to skateboard at least once every other week.  My body is heavier.  But for some reason it gives me more incentive to land tricks because if I fall it will hurt more.  

I can’t believe how much over the years this ministry [One Love Skate] has grown.  It is such a radical thing to be a part of with Josh M. and I know the influence has been major.  

  Cool update is now we have a merchandise page on the website where you can directly support the ministry by buying some One Love gear.  

  I have been doing skate lessons at Hale Makana once a week and the kids are loving it.  My passion for skate coaching has been reignited and my heart to share skateboarding with the Nations has been reimagined.

  I was talking with one of my friends from “Moke Life” and we came up with an idea to ask fellow skateboarders to donate their used parts so I can take them on my missions trips.  So with that in mind I have been working on projects to accumulate skate resources and teaming up with developing countries strategies how we can use skateboarding to develop strong leaders.  

  This is my favorite project yet.  Some countries on the line up for this skate project include Burma, Australia, and DPRK.  So exciting things to come.  Would love to get some of our island skaters in these places so keep us in mind and will be putting some stuff out and ways you can support this cause.  

  In recent skate news here on Maui, I am doing our annual skate clinic day Dec 17 @ Kihei skatepark from 9am-12PM.  Past few years we have been giving away over $1,000 worth of skate things.  But not only that we have snacks, drinks, music, contests, and skate lessons by me.  

  So if you want to learn how to skate come for a visit and lets have some fun!

    Mahalo.  Thanks for reading and taking some time to catch up.  Looking forward to all the adventures this winter break and looking forward to the new year 2017!!!  Greater things are yet to come.    

  Just want to say thanks to the New Hope Maui team, One Eighty, Jarred, Josh M., and the UHMC campus team.

1L In Northern Ireland with the_kenny_hall

1L In Northern Ireland with the_kenny_hall

Kenny Hall is The Youth Pastor at Hope Community Church, where he leads Radi8 Student Ministries. Each week at 5pm, we have One Love Skate in the parking lot at Hope Community Church, and we have been working with Kenny and the team at HCC to reach the 310 households within a quarter mile radius of the church building.

On May 16, you may have seen the above post about someone sharing a #1L #ConvoCard in London. Well, now we are privileged to have a guest blog from Kenny Hall with stories from his travels. Kenny took the One Love of Jesus with him in London and Northern Ireland, and we hope this will motivate many to have conversations about the 1L of Jesus with those around them wherever they are. Enjoy:

     Last week I took a vacation to Belfast, Northern Ireland. I was born in Northern Ireland and had not been back in 20 years to the month. During my flight from Charlotte to London, I sat next to an older lady named Grace. Ms. Grace had an interesting perspective on science and Native American religion. She believed in one God but that all religions were basically the same. I asked her about Jesus but she just acknowledged Him merely as a good man that she would see in heaven one day. She talked about how Jesus shared the same message as Buddha and Muhammad that highlighted the goodness of man and good will. However, I tried to explain that Jesus did not, in any way, highlight the goodness of man, but our need for a Savior.

Belfast, Northern Ireland

Belfast, Northern Ireland

     I was able to give her a One Love connection card with 1 John 4:9 and continue to pray that she would look at the Truth on that card and come to know her Savior that loves her beyond measure.

     During my first night in Belfast, I was able to have many conversations with various people while I was wearing my One Love hat. Whenever I was asked what I did, I was able to tell them that I was a pastor from America and was able to point to the One Love hat and talk about the One Love of Jesus. The message was so crucial to the religious-torn country of Northern Ireland. The battle between Catholics and Protestants has been going on for generations. Their religious views have everything to do with politics, borders, and the families that they grew up in.

     I was able to have a good conversation with a Catholic man named John. I shared my perspective from being born in Ulster (Northern Ireland), raised American, but was a Irish Republican citizen. I told him how I saw the country torn in two by religion, traditions, customs, politics, and bad blood. Classic Jew vs. Samaritan situation. But I was able to share that if both sides would realize the One Love of Jesus and shifted their focus off of their religion and politics and put their focus solely on the person of Jesus, everything would change and we would see peace and revival in Northern Ireland. I wasn't sure how John was going to respond, but he gave me a big hug and thanked me for saying that. There is no limit in the power of the One Love of Jesus!
