After a good nights rest, we attended worship at Kauai Baptist Church in Lihue. The worship team sang a special song in Hawaiian! What a treat!
Pastor Nathan gave a great message out of 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 about trusting God, loving God and then going to work for Him. Loving, like is described in 1 Corinthians 13 is nearly impossible without the Gospel (the Good News of Jesus). If you believe the Gospel, you will labor for Jesus because of the grace you received.

Strong Rock students joined Kauai Baptist Church youth at Kalapaki Beach for their monthly outing on Sunday afternoon. KBC has a HUGE surfboard that fits 10 or more children or youth on it! What a great time together!!

Not only did we try the giant surfboard, we played A LOT of sand volleyball and beach football. KBC youth vs Strong Rock youth!!
A Strong Rock youth shared how much she enjoyed interacting with youth from the church while at the beach.

One of our projects this week is replacing three windows in the Sanctuary at Kauai Baptist Church. To begin, we have to remove the glass slats of the traditional windows currently in the space.

Another of our projects is taking out the ceiling in the annex of the Sanctuary.

Kauai Baptist has several spaces for storage. Our group also worked to clean out and organize those spaces.

As you may imagine, there is a lot of vegetation on Kauai. We're helping Kauai Baptist remove some overgrown foliage in order to maximize the use of the land the church owns.

One of today's indoor projects included putting together a new bookshelf for the worship space at Kauai Baptist. These students put their minds to the task and completed the bookshelf! We're glad to have some indoor projects today!

What a blessing for our team to be able to chat with Pastor Nathan. He has been a big part of our week directing some work we are doing and answering all of our questions. We can see how much he loves his church and wants it to be an amazing part of the Lihue community!

Instead of our morning devotion, we are leading chapel services at Olelo Christian School. We started our morning with the students at the elementary school (preschool-4th grade). Julian gave a great message about David and Goliath!
by Halecia Wimpy | March 30, 2023 2:34 PM
We also led worship at the upper school at Olelo Christian School! Bennett and Cole gave a great message from the book of Job. Our team did a great job leading chapel today!

After chapel services at Olelo Christian School, we packed lunches and headed out for a little exploring in the afternoon. We checked out this limestone cave and the forest reserve around it called Makauwahi.
