Hope Chapel Waikiki Wishes You A Merry Christmas

Aloha Kakou,

As the year ends, it seems as though 2009 has just started. We had a wonderful and productive year. The pictures dictate what we have done in the lives of our community, our State, and abroad. Though there were many challenges along the way, God is still in control.

I want to thank the many volunteers that made Hope Chapel Waikiki the loving, caring, openhearted church in Hawaii. My ministry, ordained by God, is more pleasant because of our volunteers on Christ’s team, to have them on the team for Christ. From the Hope Chapel Waikiki staff, Council members, and the volunteers, we wish you a Mele Kalikimaka.

I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:1-3)

Na Pomaika’i (blessings),

Dennis, Donna, Kila, and Cheyenne
