4/30/18 - Monday 3 | 1L Events, Waipuna 1L Curriculum, & 1L Board Meeting

1L Fam,
      We appreciate you joining us in prayer so much! Plates are very full in this season, but we are believing that God wants us right where He has us doing exactly what we're doing. Here are the Monday 3 with a prayer from Nicole as a prayer guide in italics

1.)    1L Events

Lord, You are good!  We praise You for blessing and showering Your favor upon the 1L events in NC and HI yesterday, and we ask for fruit that remains.  We know you divinely orchestrathed connections and conversations, and now we ask that You’d bless the cultivation of those relationships.  We also lift up the 1L event on Wednesday at Keopuolani.  The cry of our hearts is to launch a life group there and see life groups at all 5 skateparks on Maui.  It’s something only You can do, and we ask in the power of Jesus name that You’d empower and direct us to be able to do just that.

2.)    Waipuna 1L Curriculum

Thank You, Jesus, for the ways You’re blessing the Waipuna Youth teaching series through the 1L Core Values.  You’ve brought together a great team, and the students are learning Your timeless truths from Your powerful word.  Hallelujah!  You answer prayer!  Thank You for the opportunity to bring three different students to two separate skate events last week from this crew.  You are moving, and we’re so thankful to be a part!

3.)    1L Board Meeting

Father, You’re ways and timing are so far above ours.  We ask for wisdom with getting a board meeting scheduled and logically planned out.  We know You can, will, and are already doing great things through this organization, but we need help in this area.  Business isn’t our strong suit, but You are able to do more than we could ever ask or imagine, so we’re trusting You to bring this together like You’ve done previously in so many ways.  We thank You, knowing confidently that You’ll will work all these things out for Your good and glory.

We pray all these things in the power of Jesus’ name; Amen!

1.)    Salvations from Maui Elementary School last Friday

Wow, God!  Only You do the amazing work of moving souls from death to Life.  We lift up the students from the school that heard your word last Friday and responded in faith to live through You, Jesus.  Empower and direct their teachers by Your Spirit to have follow-up conversations that impact eternity.  You are able to do more than we could ever ask or imagine, and we just want Your best for these students. They are Your sons and daughters, Hallelujah!  Thank You, Jesus!
 

2.)    Fruit from Pastor Aaron at Waipuna

Pastor Kaipo Thomas, Pastor Aaron Cordeiro, and Pastor Joshua at Waipuna Chapel last weekend.

Jesus, You are good!  Thank You for connecting us as a global community of faith.  We are so thankful for Pastor Aaron and his obedience to you.  It’s such an encouraging picture of being made in Your image when we all work at a team.  #TeamJesus  We pray for fruit that remains from his messages shared at the three weekend services at Waipuna.  Thank You for his encouragement to “start small, and start now.”  May we all be walking in obedience to you as we live Your One Love.

3.)    One Love Skate Reps & Coaches

Lord, we lift up the students who are currently growing through the 1L curriculum, and specifically the one student who has shown interest in becoming a 1L rep to Your glory.  We pray You’ll guide and direct his discipleship process.  We know You’re in the details, and You will work out the logistics.  Hallelujah! 

We also pray Your divine blessings and favor over the upcoming HI and NC skate events this Sunday.  Please use 1L to be a blessing, and make Your name famous.  Empower and direct Mark and Brody in NC as they represent Your One Love at Hope Community Church in the 1L skate & basketball event this Sunday.  We also pray for the partnership with the Maui Skateboard series.  May we be Your light in a dark place and impact HI for You, the Most High.

4/16/18 - The Big Picture & The Monday 3 | Marburger Prayer Update

1L Fam,
     Thanks for supporting us with your prayers! Yesterday, we had an amazing time with a couple from Pleasant City Church, NC who came to Maui to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary! Thankful for spiritual family near and far, and how God works all things together for His good.  What a refreshing couple! They encouraged us as they worshiped with us at Waipuna Chapel, took us to lunch after services, and affirmed our calling as ministers and missionaries here on Maui.

We were reminded of the Big Picture! The big picture is literally a big picture spray painted on a container in Shelby, NC: "What's One Love?" Every human must personally contemplate, "What's One Love to You?" and live in light of what we truly believe. Jesus teaches this question is the difference between life and death (John 14:6). We are so encouraged lately by all who log the results of 1L interviews.

Love changes the way we live, & we are working to share the blessing of life in Jesus through 1L Conversations, skateboards with the 1 John 4:9 1L message, & building relationships. Thanks for joining the One Love mission by praying for the Monday 3 this week:

Jim & Bev, who were part of Putnam Baptist (Shelby, NC) in 2006 when 1L began there, traveled to Maui last weekend for their 50th Wedding anniversary. They blessed us by attending Waipuna, taking us to lunch after church, and telling us they are proud of us for our work as 1L missionaries in Maui. Thankful for the way the Most High refreshes our souls!

4/9/18 - Waipuna 1L Curriculum, NC June Mission, & Maui Skateboard Series

1L Fam,
     Joshua here, thanks all who have been laboring in prayer to help many live God's One Love. Stoked to be part of a baptism yesterday in Paia, to receive pictures from a 1L rep in Honduras, and to see Waipuna use 1L Curriculum in 3 different youth services last weekend.
     Our family is learning lots during this stretching season. Josh misses our treehouse (and having our own house for that matter), but we are stoked. So encouraged last week to get an email from a pastor friend in Upcountry Maui saying he appreciates us and our ministry and is, "Looking forward to the expansion and deepening of OL's Ministry and Impact on increasing number of lives."
     As dirt is being moved to make the upcountry skatepark, we appreciate all of you how are supporting the movement moving spiritual ground with your prayers, finances, and participation! Here are the Monday 3 today with a prayer guide from Nicole

1) Waipuna Chapel Student Ministry 1L Spring Teaching Series

Thank You, God, for answering our prayer for clarity and direction regarding this teaching series with Waipuna’s youth.  You’ve blessed the start of this, and we trust You to complete this good work.  We pray this study will lead to disciple cycles and 1L reps at all 5 skate parks on Maui for Your glory.  Empower and direct the different teachers and leaders to know and grow in Your One Love, Jesus.  And let that knowledge and growth overflow onto the students.  We trust You to make a way and to bring the students that need to hear about You.  We’re excited and honored that You use us!

2) Summer NC Trip

God, Your continued provision is astounding.  Thank You, Lord, for the beauty of family and close friends.  You’ve created us in Your image, and relationship reflects Your glory!  We are stoked to be able to visit family and friends in NC this summer, and we ask for Your blessing and favor over this time.  Thank You for opening the door for us to speak on 3 different Sundays at 3 different Churches and possibly at a summer camp.  Wow!  We desire Your will be done during this trip, and we ask that You guide and direct our planning.

3) Maui Skateboard Series event on Friday  

Lord, we pray that One Love Skate will be a positive presence at this Friday event.  More than that, enable and equip us to be Your hands and feet, to bless others and make the event way more memorable and fun for the skate community.  Shine Your light through us, and help us display Your glory in creativity, connections, and skill.  Thank You for this partnership, this divine appointment. 

We pray all these things in the power of Jesus’s name; Amen!


Keep knowing love & being love!
