5 Oct

I was on the phone while walking Max this morning on Dole St. and Wilder Ave., when something suddenly landed on my shoulder by the back of my neck! I thought it was a big moth at first, but it turned out to be this lovebird. It was so tamed that it walked with me and Max for about 250 feet before it flew away. It jumped from my shoulder, to my head, to my finger, and then back to my shoulder. Is it possible that the Lord is confirming with me that this is “Life in the Spirit” conference week?


Our special guests, the Millars and Emmy

Pam and I at Halekulani Hotel with Sandy and Annette Millar from London. Sandy designed the Alpha Course that has been taken by more than 10 million people. Sandy is the former vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton in London, a bishop of Uganda, and the assistant Bishop in London. Sandy and Annette are in Honolulu to speak at HIM’s “Life in the Spirit Conference” Oct 5-6. Sandy will also be preaching at First Prez this Sunday. He will be joined by Emmy Wilson from London, creator of Alpha Prison Ministries.


Looking forward to greeting all of you at Life in the Spirit tonight and tomorrow! This is what I hope heaven will look like! 




Pam and I with (L-R) Emmy Wilson, Annette Millar, and Sandy Millar who are all visiting from London. Join us and be prayed over by them or our prayer team at tonight’s Healing Service at First Prez. Come and experience the Lord’s healing touch.
