Latest Prayer Requests
#1 - Eliana
Eliana was born February 23, 2017. She was a healthy 9 pounds 8 ounces. She is doing very well. Please pray as we adjust to parenting 3 children and raise them to love & fear the Lord.
# 2 - New Car
Along with the addition of baby #3 we are in need of a bigger vehicle. Please pray for God miraculous provision of a 7+ seater vehicle.
Our desire is for a Toyota Avanza or similar model.
# 3 - Travel to Canada
We are very blessed to be able to visit Erin's family for Christmas 2016. We need to visit David's family in British Columbia, Canada this year: 2017. David's parents have been in poor health lately and he has a strong desire to see them. They will have also not met both Vaihaunoa and the new baby yet.
Please pray for the financial miracle of provision for plane tickets.
# 4 - A Dryer
We continue to dry laundry in the sun. This is good for the most part however there are many times we wish we had a dryer especially during the rainy season.
Electric dryers here are quite inefficient and very expensive to run due to the cost of electricity. However, there are gas dryers that run off of a propane tank just like a backyard BBQ. These are much more efficient and cost $900.
# 5 - Relationships in the Community
There are a few people or families we have met that we would love to see deeper connections with. Please pray we would develop good friendships where we can share our lives and the love of Jesus.
We also have a great relationship with the faculty of Malia's school. They have asked us to help do workshops for parents. Please pray this would grow and the door would open more and more to ministry opportunities.
# 6 - New Ministry Partners
God is shifting our mindset from traditional "supporters" - simply finance to "ministry partnerships". We are looking for more people who can partner with us in whatever creative way they are able. We are still always in need of more finances however we want to see more people involved in what we do besides donations.

# 7 - Ongoing Ministry from the Holy Spirit
Both David & Erin separately and together have received a lot of revelation from God in the past 3 years. God continues to build upon each new revelation and minister deeply to our hearts.
Please pray we would respond to what God is revealing to us and apply what we learn. Please pray that God continues to deepen the work in our hearts, and that we would receive in our spirits all God wants to do.
Thank you so much for your faithful intercession.
