May 2020 Newsletter
Wow! What a crazy couple of months!! Who knew at the beginning of 2020 we would all be going through all this craziness. But, God has never faltered, He is still on the throne and He wasn’t even surprised by covid-19. PLUS, He is still in control!!! Hallelujah!!!
Just a quick update on what is happening here in Hawaii and for us on Kauai. Many of you know Tracy and I were working part-time giving samples at our local Costco. As of April 5, because of the virus, we were some of those who were laid off. But God has never failed us. He just keeps providing for us over, and over, and over again.
New Media Ministry
Back in February the Lord had impressed upon my heart to begin a Media Ministry as part of LRM. So after praying about what to do, I began to do a weekly broadcast LIVE on our Facebook page called “The Lion’s Roar”, and subsequently started a YouTube channel as well. I started a teaching on Psalm 91 and still have a few more broadcasts left for that teaching. We will keep you posted on those broadcasts. You can find all of the episodes of “The Lion’s Roar” on our YouTube channel.
Also, as most of you who know me knows, I love to cook and I have started another channel on YouTube called “Marshall’s Munchies” which is my new cooking show. So far I have 3 episodes posted for viewing and the fourth episode in the editing process now. It’s been fun and have a lot of positive feedback on my Marshall’s Munchies Facebook page. Please feel free to check them both out!
Ordained as Evangelists
On the ministry front, in January, Tracy and I were ordained as Evangelists through Reflame Ministries International based out of Oahu. We still carry our minister’s license and ordination through our home church in Texas, Abundant Grace. This ordination here has given us the necessary “spiritual covering” that we need and added to our credibility here on the island of Kauai.
We are leading worship at our church, Kauai Reflame Ministries, here in Lihue which meets at the House of Prayer. Praise God for the open door of a permanent venue for our services. House of Prayer is the ministry aspect of Island Comfort Cooling, an air conditioning company here in Hawaii, owned by our friends Ken and Tina Starr. Please keep them in your prayers also.
Although with the “stay home” order, curfew, and social distancing, we have still continued to preach the gospel. Our church congregation is very small and our core group of leaders have been meeting at House of Prayer to broadcast our Sunday morning services LIVE on Facebook. As of today, May 22, 2020, the proclamation made by President Trump deeming Churches as essential, restrictions have been lifted here in Hawaii and especially here on Kauai, to where we can have “official services” once again. Praise God!!
Hawaii Prayer Focus Maui Update
Plans that we had made for our Maui Prayer Focus: Phase 2 had to be put on hold because of the travel ban here even within inter-island flights. We will still be until June 30 before even locals can fly inter-island without a mandatory 14-day quarantine. So our Phase 2 trip, which we would be doing right now, will be rescheduled for after the travel ban is lifted. We will keep you posted on that.
Kaua'i Prayer Blitz
In the interim, God has placed on our hearts to revisit the locations here on Kauai where we prayed over our first two prayer trips. We will be beginning those next week. We are calling it our Kauai Prayer Blitz. We are in the process of dividing up the island into sections and taking one section at a time and praying over the locations within that area. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for when and where we will be. We will be praying the same Purpose and Scripture that we prayed initially to rejuvenize each location again with the power and word of God.
So, that’s what has been going on in a nutshell. I will send out an update for our Phase 2 trip to Maui and our first prayer trip to the Big Island, the island of Hawaii (that’s the one where the volcano is).
