Moving to the Largest Polynesian City in the World; Manukau

When the Lord called our family to New Zealand in 2004, there was nothing to do but say “Yes, Lord”.  Now the Lord has spoken to us to make another move, a move to the largest Polynesian city in the world, Manakau City (South Auckland).

 Although Manakau City is just 40 minutes south of where we currently reside, the ethnic background of South Auckland is almost entirely Pacific Islanders.  This means they are of Samoan, Tongan, Fijian, Cook Islands, or Maori (NZ) descent. Also, there is a large Asian population from Malaysia, China and Hong Kong.

Cindy and I are so excited to serve our new Every Nation Christian Church in Manakau City which has been seeing incredible growth. Truly, “the harvest has been plentiful, but the laborers” all live on the North Shore of Auckland.  But because of our love for the Pacific Islanders and to most effectively reach this community, our family will be moving this month.

Like never before we are asking for your faithful prayer for our family and our ministry.  Along with our move, our team is preparing to plant a brand new church in Waitakere City (West Auckland) and a new Every Nation Leadership Institute in Apia, Samoa.  But we know that nothing can be accomplished unless we first open doors through fervent prayer.  This is where we need you help!

Cindy and I are really hoping to develop a larger team of intercessors who will pray for our family, our staff, our churches and our outreach here in the South Pacific.  Would you be willing to commit to pray for us at least three days per week?

As partners with us in spreading the Gospel in the South Pacific, we believe the greatest help you can give at this time is by being apart of our intercessory team.  If you feel the led to be apart of our intercessory team, please enter your email details in the box to your right. You will then receive weekly emails with critical prayer requests.

Thank you so much for partnering with us here in New Zealand.  Your involvement with us is crucial to the advancement of God’s Kingdom in the South Pacific. Blessings to you and your family.
