Rejoice in the LORD always! Again I say rejoice!
Dearly Beloved in Christ,
See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God! And yet that is what we are. As we reflect on the birth of our Savior to rescue us from the realm of darkness into His own marvelous Light and of the limitless love He has poured into our hearts by the gift of His Holy Spirit, how can we do anything but rejoice in the blessed assurance of so great a salvation? God has given us His Son and made us a new creation in Him– forgiven, blessed, and filled with all the fullness of God! He has given us gifts beyond measure– His Son, His Spirit, and His Kingdom. We have everything and all because of Jesus. For the Father Himself was in Jesus reconciling the world to Himself. This is most wonderful. What a wonderful time we live in with so much revelation enlightening our hearts. Let His light shine from you this season and witness to so great a salvation to all. Be the Body of Christ in the world and do the works He did and greater as He has commanded us to do. Be the CIA, Christ in Action! Please read more about this in the box below with our new CIA logo and t-shirt design created by Leilani Miguel of our group!
It is time for our Advent/Christmas Meeting and it falls on Rejoice Sunday, December 15, 2019! If you have not yet, please email me your name so that I can put you on the guest list. See the details in the final box below for directions and parking. You do not want to miss this meeting of rejoicing and growing in our love for the Lord and His people as we look forward to remembering the tremendous gift of Jesus, God with us, on Christmas!
Our prison ministry team was awesome at our November Spirit-filled day at the Federal Detention Center as the women there joined us in songs of praise, prayer, and the inspired Word of God! We go every month on a Saturday from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Thanks to all of you who went and all who have gone through the training, and will be going through it in January! This is a great ministry– for He was in prison and you visited Him! Bringing light and hope into a dark place.
Our apartment ministry for the homeless and those who otherwise would not have a beautiful and loving home is going so well. We are acquiring another rental unit as of January 1, 2020, so we have two ministry apartments in the Kukui Plaza complex. If you have furniture to donate or would like to help with rent, etc. please sow a seed in the fertile soil of this ministry, Marana tha Ministries, Inc., and target it for your intention and watch your harvest come in. We are recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity by the IRS so all donations are tax deductible. Giving a home to those out of prison and to the forsaken and lonely is very dear to our Lord’s heart and He tells of great rewards for it. We would like to do so much more, the need is great but laborers are few. A building, more space and rooms, a store for the Word products we are designing with Leilani’s and Asra’s help, and so much more. We are here to care for people. Let us be the Lord’s arms to the lonely and let us rescue those trapped in the darkness of so many addictions, fears, anxieties and other demonic things. Join us in intercessory prayer as His royal priesthood, a people set apart, for the praise of His Glory!
Our TV Ministry Team is enjoying filming “Good News for You!” our very own ministry TV show sharing the Word of God with the people of Hawaii on Olelo since 2009. We film once a month at the Mini Studio at Olelo Mapunapuna, if you are interested, let me know. If you have not been watching our show, you can always watch it on our ministry website by clicking here
And I have been getting phone calls from viewers with positive feedback when it airs!
Please read the Daily Manna blog on our ministry website. The Lord has given me a teaching from His Word each day since November 2008. Eat the Word each day as your Daily Manna. Check it out at
Check out some gift ideas below that will help our ministry and give you beautiful gifts of the Word in song and a beautiful witnessing tool in our new t-shirts as you partner with the ministry.
Set your calendars now for our January meeting! It will be the third Sunday of January 2020, which is January 19, 2020! And it will be our 2020 Vision Conference for The Year of Everlasting Love. It will go from 1:00 to 5:30 pm for a special time of prayer, preparation, vision, and targeting your provision for the New Year of His Everlasting Love. It will be held at the Kukui Plaza Meeting Room also. Start the new year with perfect vision of all you have in Christ and the plan He has for YOUR life. This will replace our usual all day conference, but keep watch, for the LORD is up to something good for one later in the year.
The LORD bless you and keep you! The LORD make His face shine on you and give you His grace. The LORD smile upon you and give you Shalom! Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Merry Christmas! Hope to see you for our Christmas fellowship on December 15, 2019! Thank you to all who came to our November meeting, it was a full house and, better yet, it was a room filled with the glory of God! It was a time of supernatural joy in the Holy Spirit.
For December 15, remember, let me know if you are planning to attend.
Love and shalom,
1. First let us look at the CIA t-shirt and logo.
Our beautiful and talented member Leilani Miguel, a high school senior, has designed our new Logo as our calling to partner with Christ as His body on earth. The CIA: Christ in Action. Here is the background and calling, and this is for all believers, including you:
“An enemy power has control of the earth realm, but only if you submit to his authority (his lordship), just as he told Jesus, “Bow down unto me and I will give you the glory of all the kingdoms of the earth.” BUT we are agents, ambassadors, priests and kings of another Kingdom, and we are taking territory as the Body of Christ, doing the works He did and greater in the earth through Him, with Him, and in Him. We are the C.I.A. – Christ in Action—going about healing, saving, and BLESSING, bringing Light into the darkness, reconciling the world to God.”
Leilani has designed a T-shirt and the Logo. Her mother, our own Juanita Miguel, has secured a T-shirt maker who is ready to fill your orders. If you would like one for yourself or to give as gifts to others, they come in all sizes from child to adults, from small to as large as you like. The price is $15 per shirt if we get 100 orders or more. This price is for youth (child) small to x-large and adult small to x-large, add $4 for each 2XL and 3XL size.
Take a look at the T-shirt photos above. It is a wonderful witnessing tool. People standing in line behind you will have good reading! Declare that you are part of the Body of Christ, taking up the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God so His Will can be done and His Kingdom come! If we do not get orders for 100 shirts the price will be $28 for each shirt and, again, add $4 for each 2XL and 3XL size.
If we get your orders on the meeting date in December they will be ready for you to pick up at our January meeting.
2. Now look at the Wonderful Songs Collection CDs
These are Spirit sent songs from Heaven that contain nothing but God’s Word! They are His songs to show the world His love for the 21st Century. Songs of the 21st Lot! Bonnie composed the lyrics and music to all the songs and they are the songs we sing at our meetings. Let these songs minister to you and your loved ones so that the Word of God is always abiding with you as you join in songs, hymns and spiritual songs, always making melody in your heart to the Lord! The key of David (worship and praise) that ushers you straight to God’s throne of grace in your busy day just when you need to receive answers, mercy and grace! The boxed set contains six CDs of songs professionally recorded and sung for hours of listening or you can purchase individual CDs, There are six of them that take you on a journey from Genesis to Revelation and beyond. We are offering a special price of $15 for the six CD set in the keepsake box and $5 for each CD individually. Let me know if you want to order for your Christmas gifts or for yourself and I will have them at the meeting. All the songs can be ordered online as downloads at CD baby also at .99 per song. Check it out at
