Your gifts have helped to support new outreach to high school students (Friday nights) and young adults (Wednesday nights).
“Praise God for the rich provision for His people through the Sue Nishikawa Offering!” exclaimed Chris Morales, Pastor to Young Families, Young Adults, and Youth at Nu’uanu Baptist Church. The church has a weekly ministry to both young adults and youth during the week. According to Chris, Nu’uanu Baptist Church is trying to embody an Acts 2:42 gathering “with a deep and simple devotion to the Word through Bible study, prayer, fellowship and the breaking of bread.” The Young Adults meet on Wednesday nights for a meal, followed by a verse-by-verse Bible study with praise and worship followed by a time for fellowship. The youth have a similar schedule on Friday nights. Both groups have grown from just a few participants in the beginning to 20-25 meeting consistently in both groups.
When asked what impact the funds from the Sue Nishikawa Offering have made in their ministry, Chris replied, “The GREATEST increase I believe is in the growth of LOVE for one another in these gatherings.”
Funds from the Sue Nishikawa Offering are used to help purchase the food and other supplies necessary for their weekly gatherings. Providing the funds has opened up doors for discipleship, evangelism, and fellowship meal times. These gifts have made it possible for young men and women to exercise various gifts from waiting on tables to running events and games. Many of young people today rarely ever sit and eat and talk over a home cooked family style meal anymore. Thus, the weekly gatherings at Nu’uanu Baptist Church have become a powerful time of breaking bread. It is so vital to prepare and soften the hearts of these high school students and young adults before getting into the Word.
- Pray for high school students and young adults to find deep security and satisfaction in Christ.
- Pray that the Word of God will be planted deep into these high school students and young adults so that when they are older, they are set on the solid foundation of the Word of God.
- Pray for salvation for these high school students and young adults and their families as many of them have experienced resistance and persecution from their families.
And as you pray and as you give, consider how your church can reach the next generation for Christ. If you are starting a new ministry to reach people for Christ, you could request funds to enhance and strengthen your mission efforts. Any Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention church can request funds from this offering to strengthen and support the evangelistic and compassion ministries of your church.
