Praise the Lord! Our one-way tickets are bought! Our flight to the Solomon Islands departs Kansas City on February 28 and we arrive at the Honiara airport on Saturday March 2. God spoke to my heart that He is sending us as His ambassadors, by faith, on March 2, to "march to" the Solomon Islands in the victory of His Son!
Grace and I have been deeply touched by the prayer support! Here at the International House of Prayer, a team has been meeting with us twice a week to bathe our time of transition in prayer. Much will soon be different living in the Solomon Islands. The food, the hot and humid climate, the pace of life, the lack of modern conveniences like air conditioning, hot showers, a refrigerator, and a washing machines to name a few. But we look forward to preaching the gospel to the poor, calling Solomon Islanders into their destinies, stirring up intercession and worship, providing healing clinics, sinking many more water wells, starting some agriculture projects, and hosting visiting ministry teams!
In 2018 our Clean Water 4 Life teams installed a total of 75 water wells for villages, schools and clinics in the Solomon Islands! Our goal is to sink 200 water wells in 2019. I personally witnessed gratefulness expressed from men, women, and children who are now drinking clean water for the first time in their lives! Grace and I ministered in the Solomon Islands both for a month in April and a month in August. We also ministered for 10 days in Taiwan in December. We saw dozens come to salvation in Christ! We witnessed hundreds of healings! We are so thankful for the opportunity to go and make disciples! None of this would be possible without partners like yourself!
Because some people expressed that their monthly support will start in February it is difficult to communicate where we stand but I think we still are needing $350.00 in monthly support. Please contact me if you have any questions in regards to becoming a part of our team. We are so very grateful for your prayers, love and partnering with us! In order to give our full strength to the assignment of God on our lives, we need a financial partnership team who will link arms with us in this ministry.
We invite you to join us as we labor in the Solomon Islands!

Our Vision for the Solomon Islands
God has called us to lead many in prayer and help bring justice to the poor. Over the next five years, we want to see YWAM missionary bases and 24/7 Houses of Prayer established in every province of the Solomon Islands. Our move also allows us to give hands-on leadership to our Clean Water 4 Life ministry. We believe everyone deserves a cup of clean drinking water and it is our desire to end the drinking water crisis in the Solomon Islands by installing 1,000 more water wells for those in need of clean drinking water. Already, our historic work has enabled 40,000 people to enjoy fresh, clean drinking water from our water-well ministry run by indigenous Solomon Islanders. It is our deep conviction that God will make a way for the remaining 300,000 Solomon Islanders to also enjoy clean drinking water.

Two testimonies from those who have read my book: "I've known Rick for more than 15 years, and have prayed/walked with him through many of the miracles described here. He's the real deal, folks! By paying the price in the prayer room, he has emerged a marketplace prayer guy who listens carefully for God's Voice and then presses in until he sees the victory. You will be incredibly blessed by all these God stories. It's an easy read. Be prepared to be shocked and amazed at what you find in these pages, and allow it to build your faith so you can accomplish great things for the Kingdom."
"Rick has been an elder at our church for years. We have watched & prayed with him about these trips (to the South Pacific). What miracles we have seen through him! God has done some amazing things through Rick's Yes!! Wow! We are blessed to call him our friend, and that we have been able to partner with him through this journey! I am so happy he has written these things in a book for everyone to enjoy and for them to see what God can do with our Yes!! Thanks Rick! We love you and love your book! What a blessing!"
