Dear friends and
September 24, 2007
overwhelmed as many of us Samoans, who have been in missions for the
last 30 years, shared with our people testimonies of God's
faithfulness, provisions, and also His miraculous power. It was amazing
and we were all in tears as our sons and daughters, our warriors,

prayers as Julie and the leadership in Canada and our New Waves team
continue to make waves amongst the First Nations communities and
pray as we go to American Samoa today (Monday) for the final 5days of
the mission conferences. We are excited and believe there is going to
be a mighty move in Am. Samoa as well. We want to see them obey God in
going to the Nations.
with us in warfare. Yesterday one of the pastors that works with us
collapsed and was hospitalized. He is getting better. Many of us have
been sick so please keep us in prayers.
and me in prayers as we trust God for some miraculous provisions
finances as this has been the most expensive journey we've taken in
24years. But it's all worth it as Samoans are rising up.
We love you all
and value your prayers, friendship and who you are.
