Military Life & Ministry in Oahu!

It’s been a while since we updated you, our partners, in ministry on what’s going on here in Oahu. We promise you…we’ve not been taking a siesta on the beach lazing the days away! Covid restrictions are gone for good (we pray) as of March 25, 2022! That means no limitations on size of groups, masks, or travel! Praise the Lord! Our numbers are starting to pick back up at Home Port and we still have two other homes that are open alongside us in different places on the Island. Todd continues to teach via zoom from Home Port to the other houses and we all serve the same food. Ministry has been plentiful and our personal lives have been quite busy!

We so appreciate each of you that pray for the ministry here and/or support it financially. We feel it and appreciate your faithfulness to uplift us and our service members to the Lord! They have had difficult times, sometimes dealing with toxic leadership, covid restrictions, and most of the Pearl Harbor Joint Base Housing suffered a jet fuel leak into their water system. This has caused most of them to evacuate base in search for alternate housing where it is already in such short supply and very expensive. Well over 60K people are affected. Please keep them in your prayers. Also, as tensions rise in the world between Ukraine and Russia many feel the weight of this. Join us in keeping our warriors in prayer.

There are a lot of photos below, but I wanted to bring you up to speed, so enjoy seeing our military Ohana and us do life together as we share the gospel and teach them to do the same!

Blessings from the Beaudin’s!
