“Casting all your anxieties on Him, because he cares for you” 1 Peter 5:7
|Sarah in mommies tummy.|
On April 12th 2013 we were in Honolulu hearing the worst news of our lives. Our daughter had died! We had been seeking God for her healing, and we believed that God would heal her. We had prayed, and received many words from God that we felt pointed towards her healing. In retrospect we can see how God was preparing us for April 12th 2013.
One year later (April 12th 2014) we found ourselves in Honolulu again. This time it was in transit from New Zealand on our way back to Kona, Hawaii. It was a bit hard to be in Honolulu on the 12th, and it seemed like such a a strange coincidence.
God has carried us, and is carrying us. We are still dealing with the pain of losing Sarah, but God is mighty and in our weakness He has proven to be our strength. On April 17th Lisa, Samuel, and I will celebrate her life (as that was the day Lisa birthed her).

FMS: Our school has ended. It was an amazing time of training, equipping, and healing. We are grateful for all that we learned and are excited to see how God will use it. Pray for God to open doors for us to teach what we have learned to others.Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen: to those who gave money, and to those that lifted us up in prayer and contended for God's breakthrough. What a testimony to God's faithfulness, and provision!
YWAM Ships: We have hit the ground running! I (Morgan) am working with our 3 to 5 month bible school, and Lisa will be working with the Discipleship Training School. (Pray that these schools would run well and that God would meet with us powerfully).
The ministry is super busy, and expanding quite rapidly. One of our ships, El Encuentro, is currently in Wilmington, CA waiting for some work before it can head for Panama. She is needing about $50,000 worth of work! Please be pray for God to release the needed funds.
If you are interested in seeing El Encuentro contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org

1) For us as we commemorate our daughter’s birth on April 17th
2) For our marriage to be strong and healthy
3) For God’s financial provision
4) For good communication between co-workers (strained relationships is the number 1 reason why people leave the mission field)
5) For opportunities to minister to others from what we just learned
Thanks for all of you prayers and support. We are truly appreciative for each of you.
Morgan, Lisa, and Samuel
