On the evening of March 29, 2015, Super Typhoon Maysak battered the islands of Chuuk, demolishing up to 95% of tin houses on the island leaving hundreds of people homeless and killing at least five people. Our hearts and prayers go out to our loved ones that have been affected by this destructive super typhoon.
In response, MOMUSA took an initiative and sponsored the "We Care" Relief Drive in the hopes of collecting items that could be donated to help our Micronesian people in need. Donations were collected and shipped to Chuuk and Yap.
From all of us at MOMUSA, thank you to all for your love and support.
The church sign which had been laying flat on the ground for several months had finally been erected and restored. The two wooden posts from each end that supported the heavy sign got rotten and apparently a strong wind knocked the sign down. Thanks to Karl and Suva who joined up with a few guys from the morning service for restoring the sign. Job well done guys!
This year will mark the 20th anniversary of this exciting and growing sports ministry event. If you haven't been to this event, do yourself a favor and come experience the great sports, worship time and fellowship among fellow island brothers and sisters.

Killeen, Texas (May 3-4, 2014) - Texas Island Gathering was a success. Spending time reminiscing on the morning after my wife and I reached home safely, I wanted to give all the praises and thanksgiving to our loving heavenly father for his protection and guidance through out the trip. We left Ontario, CA Thursday evening and finally caught up with Yino and Emily in Copperas Cove, TX after a long 24-hour sleep deprived journey. Upon arrival late Friday evening we were received and warmly welcomed by the hosting group along with other participants from Reno at the beautiful residence of Dominic Funug and his lovely wife Wendy. The hosting group provided such hospitable environment throughout our stay and may God bless you for that.
The next day, everyone was invited to meet up at the Island View Pavilion on Simmons Road in Belton. The venue provided a prominent feature where breeze coming from the adjacent lake kept the temperature moderately tolerable on a warm day. The isolation of the venue also eliminated any possible distractions. We were able to play loud music and BBQ without disturbing the neighbors.
PREACH THE GOSPEL: "Everyone who calls upon the Name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13) "How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" (Romans 10:14) "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." (Romans 10:17)
