KeAkua Youth Group 2013 Mission: O'ahu

Mission children group

With the indelible experience and knowledge brought back from their mission to Los Angeles Skid Row in 2012, the KeAkua Youth Group will be serving a bit closer to home this summer. They will be heading to O'ahu on June 23, for a week of service with IHS (Institute of Human Services), River of Life Mission, Project Hawaii, Helping Hands Hawaii and Family Promise. They will be cleaning, serving, organizing, fundraising, cooking and playing with children in the homeless camps of Waianae. Most of our veteran missioners will be going, but so will our younger middle school youth, who will get their feet wet. Because of the youth group's background, a couple of the sites are waiving their 16-year minimum age requirement to accommodate our youngest youth. 


If you would like to help defray some of the costs, you can make a donation to All Saints' Church, with a notation: Youth Mission 2013, and mail it to: All Saints' Episcopal Church, PO Box 248, Kapa'a, HI 96746. Above all, keep them in your prayers as they prepare for this trip.

Collecting Instant Oatmeal in April
Oatmeal As most members know, the red wagon at the entrance of the church is a food collection for Hale Ho'omalu, a child and family service center located across the street from the church.  The ECW has been a big supporter of this organization, making Easter and Christmas goodies for the children. They will be supplementing the wagon with donations of suggested items on a recurring basis. For the month of April they will be collecting instant oatmeal. You may either drop your donation off in the red wagon, or pass it on to one of the ladies of the ECW. For more information, please see Diane Sato or an ECW member.
Rectory Renovation in Progress! 
Hidden behind the walls of the rectory fence, there's a lot going on thanks to the tireless efforts of Junior Warden David Murray.  The following is an update from David:
Rectory questionThings are moving along well thanks to the support and hard work of John and Jack Nakamura and the electrical, plumbing and other contractors who have been involved.  Phase one of the project has focused on the bathrooms and refinishing the floors. The bathrooms are still very much a work in progress but the floors in the dining room, living room and front bedroom have been refinished and they look spectacular!  Phase two of the project will focus on the kitchen.  Rev. Ryan and Erin are looking forward to hosting an Open House once the project is pau!!

TENS Stewardship Conference 
TENS 2013 logo 
Are you ready to blossom in stewardship?  Are you looking to plant the seeds of faithful giving in your congregation and diocese? Do you want to network with others passionate about generosity and discipleship? If so, be sure to register for the 2013 TENS Flourish in Faith Stewardship Conference on July 12-13 at the Episcopal Commons of Utah, in Salt Lake City. 
The conference is designed to offer congregational and diocesan stewardship teams theological, scriptural and practical aspects of stewardship formation and annual giving.  Keynote speakers Sister Joan Chittister and Bishop Bruce Caldwell from the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming will explore: what does it mean to flourish in our faith? How do we find our ground of faith? Is it rooted in a God of abundance, or do we let our faith wither in a culture of scarcity?
To learn more about the conference and to register, visit the TENS website HERE
