The above video tells the story about how God has used Celebrate Recovery at Waianae Baptist Church to see lives changed. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program designed to help people overcome their hurts, pains, and addictions. Celebrate Recovery also develops leaders for ministry through its teachings, lessons, and Step studies.
In addition to Celebrate Recovery in Waianae, this program is also being offered in Guam and at two different churches on Hawaii Island. Your gifts have helped to establish this as an outreach to the community.
Our prayer focus for this year is on Tamuning Christian Fellowship in Guam.
When Ed Perez, pastor of Tamuning Christian Fellowship in Guam, and his wife, Luz, attended a Celebrate Recovery seminar in the Philippines, they saw firsthand the difference it was making there. They knew this was what they needed in their own community where many struggle with addictions and hurts. Since returning from the Philippines, nine leaders have been trained to run the program at Tamuning Christian Fellowship.
With the help of funds from the Sue Nishikawa Offering, they were able to launch their Celebrate Recovery program in March 2018. Pastor Ed says, “We are here to work where God is working and transform lives for His kingdom.”
- Pray for Pastor Ed and his wife, Luz as they promote this Christ-centered recovery program in the community.
- Pray for the men and women who are seeking forgiveness of their sins, confessing those sins, and receiving the help of the Holy Spirit and of the family of God to deliver them from their hurt, pain, or addiction.
- Pray for the leaders to persevere in their commitment.
- Pray for church leaders as they plan and implement events to introduce people to the Celebrate Recovery.
Please let us know if your church is currently offering Celebrate Recovery. Also, if you would like us to connect you with one of these churches to learn how to start it in your church or if you would like to request funds please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
