July Update

13 08 2014

July was a great month for partnering with others to reach Hawaii for Christ!

Prayer Walking

prayer walking team We were visited by a group of young people from Chinese Baptist Church in Honolulu and the Chinese Baptist Church of Orange County California.  They spent an afternoon with us prayer walking some neighborhoods of Ewa Beach and inviting many people to our church.

Baptisms and Waianae

Throughout the past year, we have partnered with Darla Richardson and her work with Chuukese teens in Waianae.  We are making plans to bring Matt Lincoln on as a church planting intern for the coming year.  Our purpose is to work with Matt to prepare for a church plant in Waianae in the future.blog baptism

Matt is off to a great start! We were invited to join with Darla, Matt, and a team of summer missionaries to celebrate the baptism of three young men.  These young men are being discipled by Matt and are attending Aloha Community Church.  I cannot think of a better reason to look ahead to a church plant, even in an unlikely place among unlikely people!

Moving Forward Individually and Together

Aloha Community Church is recognizes that everyone is on a journey.  Some are merely curious about Jesus.  Others are Christ-followers.  Some are making disciples.  We walk this journey together and invite others to join us.  This has become evident throughout July as we have watched many take on ministry and seek opportunities for growth.

Hurricanes and Prayer Requests

I want to thank everyone for their concern and prayers as two hurricanes threatened Hawaii.  They did not amount to much on Oahu and for that we are grateful!  We live daily by the grace of God.  We do ask that you pray for communities on the Big Island that are still without power.

We also ask that you pray for:

  • We have spoken to many people recently that need the Lord.  Pray that we can see a harvest!
  • Matt Lincoln is currently trying to raise support for his year-long internship with us.  Please pray for the work he is doing in Waianae.  If you are interested in helping, you can send donations to Aloha Community Church, 91-596 Makalea St, Ewa Beach, 96706.  Please be sure to designate that your support is for Matt Lincoln’s ministry
  • I have been dealing with a herniated disk in my neck.  I had surgery for a herniated disk 5 years ago and now another one is giving me problems.  I am currently going to physical therapy.  My therapist is excellent!  (He is also a great teacher in our children’s ministry!)  Please pray that this can alleviate the problem and surgery will not be needed.  I also began showing symptoms of a kidney issue.  However, tests revealed nothing and the symptoms went away.  Praise God for healing!  Please pray for the Lord’s provision as these tests were an unexpected expense.
  • Please pray for Kerry and his case.
  • Please pray for Caleb.  Please pray that the Lord uses him in school, baseball, and all of his many activities.
  • Please pray for Samantha.  She leads a ladies Bible study.  Pray that many can be reached through this.
  • Please pray for the Lord’s continued blessing on our work here!

Aloha in Christ!

Aaron and Samantha Davis
