Airfares are coming down!!

Fuel surcharges fall on April 1st!  Looks like we’ll end up flying Japan Airlines since we got a great fare quote…yay!!

No need to pack spam musibis because they don’t make us pay for food on board!

Here’ a photo I found from Pastor Kelly Hilderbrand’s trip last year when he came to speak at our church …we ate, hung out at the Okimura’s residence & listened to him share even more details of his life as a missionary in Thailand.

Kelly looks the same as the day I met him almost 18 years ago at Hope chapel Honolulu!  Everyone here minus the kiddies knew Kelly from way back…

Too Small to Ignore – Wess Stafford and Dean Merrill

March 25, 2009 at 7:57 pm (Book Reviews)

Co-authored by the president of  Compassion International

What an amazing book! I heard Rob & Michele read this in a day or two….i took a little longer, took it everywhere with me & when I did get into it, the stories and testimonies really grabbed my heart!

Upfront, personal, Wess shares honestly & in depth about the value God places on children (over church history, children have too often been brushed aside); & we wonder why generations are raised up that turn to the world: because we have not made the efforts to show them  God’s heart for them & that they truly matter.

He tells of his journey, as a missionary’s kid, the things from his childhood that  led him to his present place, the abuse he’s endured, & the eventual place  where forgiveness was found & his healing  completed.  He challenges readers to take action no matter where we are,  implants in us something that God can begin to stir…Get it, Read it, Allow it to soak in, Pass it on~ Lynnie

Loving Our Kids on Purpose – Danny Silk

March 25, 2009 at 7:49 pm (Book Reviews)


Available on

This was a great book that we picked up at the last Laulima conference.  With “love” as a focus, Danny & Sheri Silk talked about the paradigm shift needed to raise our children with a relationship oriented versus a performance oriented outcome.  Grasping the ablility to make the heart-to-heart connections with our children, parenting through grace & teaching them the ways of our Heavenly Father will point them toward Him.

Practical parenting tips were also given a new breath of life.

I was really moved by their honesty & transparency as they shared experiences from their personal family life.  This book is a great companion to the CD version as it can be difficult to scan through the various discs to search for a particular sections.

Site Development…?

“How lovely on the mountains are the feet of Him who brings good news…”  Isaiah 52:7

Today,  I spent a lot of time online & making phonecalls to shop for airfares….to break the monotony of things…I got adventurous & made this a new project!  It’s pending approval & has lots of birth pains, so bear with the infancy of things…

It’s my vision as the blog administrator for this to be a safe place where my team members can blog & voice our journeys’ experiences … to have an avenue to express things that stir in our hearts…to be able to share our encounters  with the Lord…(before, during & after our mission trip)… our…fears…struggles…prayers…hopes…dreams…

and for our friends, families, church family & visitors…

Be refreshed, Be blessed, Be enouraged, Be faithful…
