Event Recaps

MOMUSA Visited Yapese in Tempe, AZ

TEMPE, ARIZONA (December 7-8, 2013) - What a humbling privilege once again to have experienced the hands of God working among our people. On December 14 and 15, the MOMUSA Family visited Yapese in Tempe, Arizona. Those that came represented Yapese from Tempe, Phoenix, and Mesa.

On Saturday, the event kicked off with volleyball and basketball games at the All-American Gymnasium in Tempe. Following the games, we assembled outside the gym for a time of praise and worship.

In his opening, Sato shared the teamís gratitude toward the Yapese community members for accepting our request to visit and welcoming us to come and fellowship with them. The worship started with the MOMUSA group sang a couple worship songs. Testimonies were shared by Emily and Maxine Suka and each of them sang a special number following the testimonies. Lawrence Yinolang shared the Gospel Message and concluded it by addressing the crowd with a challenging question, ďIf you were to die any moment and you are standing before the Lord and He asks you, ĎGive me a reason why I should allow you to enter into heaven?í What would be your answer?Ē As the closing song sang, many responded and came forward.

The next day, on Sunday, we gathered at the Defniís home for another fellowship time. Testimonies were shared by Gary Suka and Chenchen Ludwig Palmer followed by a closing remarks by Sato Suka. The community elders were given the opportunity for closing remarks where each expressed his/her gratitude for the visit and what have taken place in their lives during the weekend.

What a great turnout that was! Please keep the Yapese group in your prayer as they begin their new fellowship group.

Special thank you to John and Matilda Defngin for organizing the event and opening up their home to us, Thomas Tun and his wife Josephine, and our friend Bernard Goosur who came all the way from Texas just to attend the event. View Event Photos
