The heart of God is for native cultures to be as He designed them and purposed them to be.
The heart ofGod is for each person of each culture to become a child of His Kingdom and that each might know and understand who created them to be in Him within the uniqueness and dignity of their own culture.
God will use His spirit of Aloha that He has deposited in the Hawaiian Culture to bring healing, restoration, and freedom, not only on our island and in Hawaii, but all over the hurting and needful world.
God requires of us ha'aha'a (to remain humble before Him and each other), pule mau ana (incessant prayer), fasting and a call to holiness.
