First Trip to Israel


Yes, we finally made it to the amazing land of the Bible! This is us, Gwynn & Pooka, in a boat on the Sea of Galilee! THE SEA OF GALILEE!!! 

We went with our new church here in Idaho and had an amazing time. We saw so much, did so much, we are still processing it.

Oh Jerusalem! The city of the great King! I wanted to cry over it as did our Lord...

As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.” Luke 19:41ff

Our first sighting of the old city, coming in on the road from Jericho, near the Mount of Olives, was the huge golden Dome on the Rock! What an abomination... a late arriving interloper comes in with the sword and lays stake to God’s city! A true atrocity. Very sad. 

But Jerusalem was still spectacular. It is still God's city. On our last day we were able to visit a place that simbolizes God's victory over all who come against Him:


The garden tomb. And yes, my partners in faith, it was empty!


Christafari Hangs Loose in Hawaii


Christafari handing out Bibles during a show at the largest mall in Maui.

Greetings from Christafari!  Our June trip to Hawaii was a tremendous success. We played 17 shows in 19 days on 3 islands, gave away hundreds of Bibles and saw around 300 souls saved! One of the strengths of playing a bunch of events and churches on each island is the ability to build momentum. On Maui we played at a major mall on a Tuesday night. It was packed! Local passersby were drawn in by the music and then by the end of the night were saved and left the mall with a new Bible in hand. They would then follow us to our next event and bring their friends who would in turn get saved and so on... Some even caught every one of our shows and ended up becoming our closest friends. It was incredible!

We are now finishing our new worship album and are launching it at the 14,000-member Calvary Church of Albuquerque at the end of July. We then head off to the South Pacific for a ministry tour of Fiji and New Caledonia before we do more shows stateside.

These last few months have definitely been different with our new 3 month old daughter, Ziza as part of our crew.  Things take longer and are more complicated, but God continues to bless us in many ways!
