We made it safely to Oahu! We are settled in and have been enjoying the beautiful landscapes we pass on our drives. Last night we had an impromptu trip to the beach to see the sunset after orientation!

We also are working on cleaning the kitchen! The property has a lot of people come through, and cleaning and organizing is always needed somewhere!

Saturday we started working bright and early. A small group of us swept, mopped, and cleaned some of the church’s buildings, which is a constant need with all of the activities and events the church has throughout the week.

The church has a building to house staff and we have been able to come alongside a flooring project they have been hoping to get done before a new family moves in next month! We are laying flooring in the main hallway and in the empty apartment.

This morning, we got to attend the Sunset Beach church service! They service is held outside and Pastor Jacob has a “come as you are” motto. We enjoyed some beautiful worship with solely a ukulele and a great message on Acts 8 and the contrast of the two conversions. We felt so welcomed and blessed to join in the service today!

Sunday afternoon, we went to Waimea Valley, though we weren’t able to see the waterfall due to drought, we enjoyed a peaceful hot dog lunch with some beautiful botanical views. Then we went to the Dole Plantation! We took the Pineapple Express tour around the plantation, did the 2008 World's Largest Maze, ate some Dole whip, and did some souvenir shopping!

Last but not least, we reattached the doors to the bathroom stalls! Then we got to stand back and see the finished product! We are so thankful to partner with Sunset Beach and be able to help them to focus more on their church body and community and not worry about their bathroom anymore!
