Dear Hope Chapel Honolulu,

As I’m sure that you’re well aware, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to worsen, local officials, contact tracers and now hospitals are struggling to manage the situation here in Hawai’i, too, and even though some are saying that we are a step closer to a vaccine, we all need to be wise and patient as we trust in God’s steadfast power, love and faithfulness!

Your continued prayer for one another, our communities, leaders in government, business and education, for those who are unable to pay their bills, worry about their children’s health, education and future is something that is not only pleasing to God, but effective, too! And please continue to pray for wisdom, discernment, provision and protection for us as we draw closer to our planned Grand Re-Opening date of September 6, 2020!

Here are our latest praise reports and prayer requests:

  • Physical repairs and COVID-19 improvements to our building are about 98% complete, praise the Lord, and thank you Charlie, Daniel, Leona and Anela!
  • We’re planning for our third volunteer re-training this coming weekend, but watching the news closely as we will be conducting this training for teams on-site to help them familiarize themselves with and troubleshoot any problems we have with our plans. We’re continuing to do our best to ensure that all of Team Hope is adequately informed and prepared to make our Sunday gatherings safe and healthy for everyone!
  • I hope you’re enjoying our new church app and getting comfortable with the regular notifications and discovering the various tools and resources to be helpful to your personal worship, discipleship and witness, too! Please pray for our MiniChurch info rollout, too, as the community spread of COVID-19 is causing our MiniChurches to be more careful, too!
  • Last and not least, please continue to share your prayer requests and praise reports through praywithme@hopehonolulu.com so our Prayer Team might support you in prayer and rejoice with you at God’s miraculous answers to prayer.

May the LORD bless you, keep you, make His face to shine upon you, be gracious to you and yours, and daily fill your hearts and homes with His presence, love, comfort, joy, hope and peace, I pray in Jesus’ Name!
