Let me begin by sharing why I believe in miracles! The Christmas story is full of many miracles! The virgin birth of Jesus by Mary! The choirs of Angels appear to the Shepherds! The incarnational miracle of God the Son becoming a human-being! Jesus was the miracle-Worker, the Great Physician who healed the blind, the deaf, and paralytics, who miraculously fed the multitude with a few loaves and fishes! Jesus resurrection miracle from the dead! Jesus Himself, after the death of the cross, was raised to life after 3 days in the grave to save us from our sins! The miracle's of Jesus in each of our lives could fill a book! I love that we get to serve a miracle working God!
So here's a few more reasons why I believe in miracles! Grace and I moved to the Solomon Islands on March 2, 2019, trusting in God's provision for both our CW4L ministry needs and for our personal needs as full-time missionaries to serve and live here at YWAM Solomon's! In 2018 prior to moving here, we made a short video declaring by faith that our Clean Water 4 Life vision was to sink 200 water wells in 2019, another 200 water wells in 2020, another 200 in 2021, another 200 in 2022, and then around the age of 70 I would move back home! So how do you explain that in the midst of this terrible Pandemic that our CW4L ministry was able to sink 290 water wells in 2020! Dear friends and partners in 2020 together we rescued around 58,000 Solomon Islanders with a source of clean drinking water! Remember last year in 2019 we provided 193 water wells which equates to helping 40,000 Solomon Islanders! In 2018 we provided 95 water wells which equates to helping 20,000 Solomon Islanders! It's truly a miracle that together we impacted approx 115,000 Solomon Islanders the past three years! Praise God for His faithfulness! It's a MIRACLE!
Another miracle concerns a Solomon Islands worship video that will be included at the beginning of 24 hours of continuous worship/prayer from many nations starting at midnight December 31 - Jan 1. I'm excited for you to tune in to listen as our Solomon Islands will be a part of this Upper Global Room celebration!! This video includes all original songs from our beloved Solomon Islanders! It was a miracle that so many Solomon Islanders donated their time, energy, and many talents to produce this video! I told these Solomon Islanders that we are making history by joining our voices to start off 2021 with these other nations. So please save this link and join us on December 31 at midnight!
On December 6th we celebrated a handing over of a free Clean Water 4 Life water well at Jacob's Well Community! Another miracle of 15 Solomon Islanders in attendance were touched by my message and came forward to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior at my invitation! The angels were rejoicing! The handing over included a warrior (with spear in hand) greeting Grace and I as we entered the village. Later some young boys in native attire performed some customary dancing which was lovely! There were some speeches of appreciation! We did a ribbon cutting to officially hand over this beautiful water well pump! We concluded with a wonderful meal provided by the locals! It's a good thing we drove my 4-wheel drive Hilux because it's a miracle we didn't get stuck in the mud!
As we celebrate Jesus Christ this Christmas season. I believe that it is God's dream that every child in the Solomon Islands could have a source of clean drinking water! Please know that 100% of your gift goes directly to sink a water well for a school or village in need! Please be generous and together with our CW4L ministry let's provide another miracle of 250 or more free water wells in the Solomon Islands next year!
From the bottom of our hearts both Grace and myself, say thank you for partnering with us! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

How to Give to Rick & Grace Rupp’s Ministry
Non tax-deductible donations - This option ensures that 100% of your donation goes to support us and our ministry. If you do not itemize your tax return or otherwise do not need a tax deduction, this is the best way to support our ministry. (US law allows a person to receive up to $15,000 annually, tax-free, from a donor with no cap on the number of donors.)
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."
