Te Haerenga

Te haerenga 2007 has now come to completion. We have much to thank God for. He has been faithful, He has provided and many fruit has within the lives of many. We had a team of 45 go to Hawaii. The schedule consisted of cultural exchanging with the local Hawaiian people at schools, kids programmes, on native homelands, organizations. We did community work, toured the Island, church services, we had speakers come to impart to us, the kids went to a camp and youth had a few days with some adults, performed at a 4th July concert, team members got baptised and we all got to go to a Luau!

It was an awesome time both phase 1 & 2and huge changes made.Everyone is looking forward to the next one and team keeps growing.

We had our last time together this past weekend (28th July) sharing highlights, eating together and watching power point presentations. It was really a great time together (no one wanted to go home)

Multiplying: As mentioned before in terms of its expansion, we have been looking for mid wives to give birth to Te Haerenga in other areas where needed. We have formulated a core team of national people to help with its growth. Next year there will be at least 2 Te Haerenga programmes run.

Next Te Haerenga?: Right now we have in mind to run 2 Te haerenga programmes (1 in Tauranga and the other in Kawhia) Dates will be confirmed in the next 2 weeks.

Te Haerenga 2nd level: We will also be running 2nd level Te Haerenga programmes for those who have done the first one. The second level gatherings have a main focus for the weekend and is more indepth.

We are having one in Sep, Oct and Nov of this year. The 3 weekends will be on Maori language, Hearing the voice of God and the 3rd one on relationships.

We are excited about this and see dynamic things happen.

No performances as such.

Specifically Pacific (a new community initiative)

Specifically Pacific (SP) is going well at 'Te Kura kaupapa Maori o Otepou' a local total immersion maori school.

Term 1 we focused on Samoa, term 2 on Tahiti/Cook Islands and term 3 will be on Hawaii.

The students are enjoying learning different aspects of Pacific Island culture such as songs, dance, food, language, arts & crafts etc.

Island Breeze International conf

This year’s conference was hosted in Hawaii at the University of the Nations in Kona, Hawaii. It was an awesome time as we gathered from our different locations around the world. The fellowship was rich, the updates were encouraging and our time with Loren & Darleen Cunningham invaluable.

God has been speaking about alignment and we are looking forward to the future development of Island Breeze international.

PRAYER POINTS

1 Pray for financial provision for Island Breeze NZ to cover operational costs as a ministry for all areas.

2 Pray for Gods continued blessings for Specifically Pacific as we transfer the songs, dances, values and a positive role model to the children.

3 Pray for staff to staff and lead Pacific Quest DTS as well as students and that we would have the right strategy to do so.

4 Pray for the development of Te Haerenga as it expands.
