Welcome to Hope Talk
This week Pastor Will wanted our Hope Family to hear the glorious and great things God is doing through Michael and Elizabeth Charley!
Dear Hope Family,
We thank the Lord for the opportunity to serve alongside our Hope Family as we venture out to our island peoples around the area, especially in Asheville, NC. We have been praying and preparing under the ministry of Hope Chapel to be able to serve our people the Micronesians. It seems the Lord is already giving us plenty of opportunity to do that lately. We do not even need to wait until we reach our homeland. Instead, home is closer than we realized. There's plenty of Micronesians here in Greenville, Asheville, Charleston, Myrtle Beach and elsewhere. Back home there's a ship that visits each island every 3 to 6 months bringing in needed supplies and visitors such as family members who live far. The name of the ship is the Micro Glory. It feels like that is what is needed with these pockets of Micronesians around here, except maybe it's a bus and it's to deliver the glory of the gospel of Jesus Christ, our utmost privilege and joy! Thank you each and everyone for your support in prayers and encouragement, a vital part of any ministry.
So far, every weekend we spend time with the Asheville family from the island below our island called Kapinga. They speak a slightly different dialect which we can understand mostly. They have been under the Mormon influence and are beginning to see the faultiness of it. We begin from scratch like familiarizing them with the books of the Bible, who is Jesus, and what is the gospel, or the good news. Please pray for wisdom in teaching these folks and showing them God's love as we interact with them. Pray for safety and for our little Hannah to be nurtured and grow in a godly environment even as we get involved in the lives of these people whom we are trying to reach for Christ. We miss Hope, the people and the ministry! We love you and consider you our dear friends and coworkers in the ministry God has given to us.
Matt. 6:33 "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you."
In His service,
Michael, Elizabeth and Hannah Grace Charley
