12/11/17 - Monday 3 | Tragedy, 1L Media, & Free Skateboards
Grace & peace! Joshua, one of your 1L Missionaries, here. I am working on a #LiveOneLove book this week at a Baptist camp in Oahu by myself for a few days, and I am posting the “Monday 3” from here on Oahu. Thank you for logging in and lifting us up!
Let’s begin with a praise: What an amazing several days it’s been working to share the 1L of Jesus #ShoulderToShoulder with inspirational people from all around the world on the North Shore of Oahu! Sam P (#OneLoveSkate Maui) & Auburn F (#OneLoveSkate Wyoming) & I all came to Oahu for an event at Sunset Beach Christian Church Saturday evening. A Maui skater named Braden came with us and enjoyed skating hard at the #OneLoveSkate event we hosted Saturday afternoon at Banzai Skatepark very close to the church! We had great opportunities to connect with skaters and like-minded leaders who were stoked about the vision of One Love Skate.
Here are the Monday 3 this week (w/an optional prayer in italics).
1.) Let’s pray for the many people impacted by the brutal murder of Telma Boinville that took place this week across from Sunset Beach Christian Church on the North Shore of Oahu.
More info here: http://khon2.com/2017/12/08/grieving-north-shore-community-shocked-by-teachers-brutal-murder/
- God, we hurt for Telma’s family and other loved ones left behind after she was brutally attacked and killed while cleaning a house. Thank you that her daughter survived, but we pray for her daughter's emotional healing after this traumatic experience. We thank you for the story of forgiveness from her husband, but ask that you would supernaturally weave peace and grace through their lives as they grieve and continue their lives. Please continue to use Sunset Beach Christian Church and they other churches close by on the North Shore to be lights for You, Jesus.
2.) Let’s pray for Auburn as he edits videos & writes a new blog sharing ways the Most High worked last weekend.
- God, thank You for bringing Auburn to Maui and Oahu last weekend for One Love ministry. Please bless his life, marriage, and ministry as he and his bride connect and grow in You, Jesus. Thank You for using Auburn to do amazing work and for all of Your amazing surprises including him getting to talk with Christian Hosoi about One Love Skate today. Thank You for Your presence in all of the details. Please bless Auburn as he edits videos and writes a new blog sharing the great things You have done. Thank You, LORD.
3.) Please pray for the recipients of the 5 boards we gave away last weekend & for 1L Reps to rise up to #LiveOneLove in their communities.
- God, we pray for all who received free 1L skateboards from us last weekend. We pray many would experience Your One Love as 1L Reps are discipled to be a positive influence at every skatepark in the world because of Your One Love. Thank You for Your perfect hand and perfect plan putting the pieces together to help Your people represent You well in the skate community. We lift up all these life groups to You. Last, we lift up Joe from (Sunset Beach Christian Church) & Abby (Surfing the Nations) as they continue the ministry to Banzai skatepark where we did a #OneLoveSkate event Saturday afternoon. Please make Your Name famous in all of the details. It’s in Your Name we pray LORD Jesus, Amen.
Thanks for taking the time to join us in prayer, 1L Fam! We continue to work & pray for life groups at every skatepark in the world, & we appreciate all the ways you help us accomplish this mission!

11/13/17 - #Monday3: Putnam's 1L Legacy, 1L Speaking Opps, & 1L Reps
Thanks for being prayer partners with us! Today, we are reminded that breath in our lungs and fruit in our ministry is all a gift from God. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 4:7: "What do you have that you did not receive?" Nicole and I have been working to cultivate thankfulness today in our relationships with ↑ God and ↓ People as Pastor Shaun Waite recently helped us learn that thankfulness is the best fuel for obedience! Today, the Monday 3 consists of three praises which springboard in to prayer requests.
Here are 3 Praises for the week (as well as an optional prayer guide)
1.) 1L Legacy Discipleship Vids at Putnam Baptist Church
God, thank You that Jim Barr shared with the SWAT group about making discipleship videos last Thursday night. Thank You that the though the grass withers, the flowers fade, and none of us will live forever... You Truth remains for eternity. LORD, we pray for wisdom for these "Seniors With A Testimony" as they craft videos to teach the 1L Discipleship Values & Verses. Please bless them and bless many through what they share for years and years to come.
2.) Joshua & Kaipo Sharing The Light & Love of God last Thursday at Doris Todd Christian Academy
God, thank You for the opportunity You gave Pastor Kaipo to lead worship music and Pastor Joshua to speak to a group of about 35 Middle Schoolers during the "Glow Night" last Thursday at Doris Todd. Thank You for inviting all of us to live in Your Light revealed in 1 John 1. Please continue to bless the Doris Todd students and staff, and also please bless the people of Paipala Church in Paia who were part of the "Glow Night" last Thursday. Help us all continue to glow in the dark as we know Your light & love. Please bless the communities where You have placed us, and help us see much fruit that remains for Your Glory as we live Your One Love "shoulder to shoulder with soldiers for Your Kingdom."
3.) 1L Reps #Sightings
God, thank You for working through our friends who texted us this picture from NC. Thank You that people around the world are sharing Your One Love by asking the 2 One Love Questions. Thank You for our YWAM friend who just returned from a couple months in Bangladesh with a One Love sticker on his phone the whole time as he sought to share Your Love. Thank You for working through Sam P to build relationships with East Maui Parks for an event in Paia as well as South Maui parks for yearly One Love Skate events in Kihei. Thank You for the YWAM crew who ministers at University of Hawaii, Maui every Wednesday and have been learning the One Love values and living them out. Thank You for Nicole's hard work as a One Love missionary and all of the ways You are using her to connect, communicate, and create. Lastly, thank You for the phenomenal sermon this past weekend at Waipuna Chapel about Judgement and that You are a loving God who gives us hope and comfort as you save us from "our freefall" in to sin through Jesus' death, burial, & resurrection. Thank You that You will reward all of our good deeds and You make our wrongs right when, through Your salvation, we experience your One Love.
God, we lift up all these situations to You. Thank You that are always working behind the scenes. We pray for the One Love movement that You will help Your children be equipped to live Your One Love all around the world as we connect at every skatepark in the world and use whatisonelove.com for more transformational discipleship and evangelism resources than we could ever know how to ask for or imagine. We pray for many to experience Your One Love through these 1L Reps and more this week, and we pray for many to be discipled in Your local churches as we make disciples who make disciples--disciple cycles. To You be all of the Glory. It's in Your perfect Name we pray, Jesus. Amen.
What a privilege to celebrate this fruit and see God's hand at work! Nicole and I are thankful for the privilege of serving as One Love Missionaries, and we could not do it without you!
Thanks for lifting us up!
Grace & Peace,
Joshua & Nicole Marburger
11/6/17 - Partnerships, Events, & Skaters Connecting to Local Churches
Thanks for logging in and lifting up the #Monday3! This weekend at Waipuna, we were reminded that Jesus said, "It is not for you to know [all the details]... But you will receive power [all you need]" (Acts1:7-8). We are so thankful the Most High equips us to do His Work with His perfect resources. Prayer is an important part of the process.
Here are the 1L prayer requests for the week (as well as an optional prayer guide)
1.) Partnerships - God, thank You for providing the people and resources to help us make disciples at the five skateparks here in Maui. Please give us wisdom as we work "shoulder to shoulder with soldiers for God's Kingdom" to help this take place. Thank You that You guide us, you go before us, and you go behind us taking care of all the details. Please provide mutual encouragement as many give and receive to share Your One Love, Jesus.
2.) Events - Lord, thank You for opportunities to have some fun events in the next month with fellow ministers on Maui and in Oahu. Please bless the Paia skatepark 1L event in a couple weeks with Paia Youth & Cultural Center & Sam Peralta. Please continue to bless the 1L Conversations on Wednesdays with YWAM at UHMC. Lastly, we lift up to You the SonRise event during the Van's Triple Crown of surfing on the North Shore December 9th. Please bring together all the people and resources to help this happen. We ask for much fruit that remains to Your Glory. Also, we pray for monthly board giveaways at every skatepark in Maui as You provide 1L Reps at all 5 skateparks to do this important ministry of One Love Skate. Thanks for all You are doing and all You are going to do. It's in Your Name we pray, Jesus.
3.) Skaters Connecting to Local Churches - King Jesus, thank You that You connect us to You and Your people. Thank You that although none of us are perfect, and no local church is perfect---You are perfect. God, we pray for many skaters to experience Your 1L through the ministry of #OneLoveSkate as You send Your workers into the harvest at all 5 Maui skateparks and at skateparks around the world. Please let these skaters get connected to Your Church so that can be linked up and learning shoulder-to-shoulder with people who will help them be disciples who make disciples for Team Jesus. We continue to ask for revival on Maui as many more "know the love and be the love" all by the power of Your Holy Spirit because of Your finished work on the cross and resurrection life. To You be all the Glory, Jesus. It's in Your Name we pray, amen.
Have a great week!
In the 1L of Jesus (1 John 4:9),
