"Loving the Mission"

(excerpt from Charlie's AUG 2020 newsletter)

Time flies when you are having fun, and wow has this Summer Internship flown by! I don’t know exactly how to communicate all the impact, but I do know that God has used all its experiences to grow me in many ways. How blessed I have been: for the interactions I had with the kids. For the team I was able to be a part of. Especially for the people that have gathered around me for prayers and gifts. I will leave you with one final plug. PHM is a phenomenal organization. It is by far the best youth program focused on military teens that I have ever come across in my years as an Army Brat. If you would consider becoming one of their supporters, I know they would love it. Again, thank you for your time and prayers!

"In Love with the Mission"

(excerpt from Annalise's AUG 2020 newsletter)

Connected to the ministry by people who had worked with Pacific House of Mission (PHM) while stationed on Oahu, my brother Andrew started working with PHM in 2015. In 2017 my mom and I took a vacation to Hawaii to visit my brother and see a little bit of what he was doing. I fell in love with the Mission that summer. Two summer internships, some dreaming, a lot of determination, and one move across the world later, I am here, working as full-time staff with PHM and finishing up a one-year apprenticeship. This Mission is something I whole heartedly believe in. And I thank you that you believe in it as well. That is why I am so excited to tell you that I have made the decision to stay on for another 2 years.

"2-YEAR LEADERSHIP TRANSITION PLAN" for The Schmidt Family with P.H.M.

(excerpt from Kevin & Casey's AUG 2020 newsletter)

Alright we have some BIG NEWS! This month kicks off the Schmidt Family’s 2-year timeline and transition of mission leadership. Yes that is right—there is a vision for all the crazy Schmidts’ return to the mainland, and also for PHM’s continuing legacy. The hearts in our chests—right now—are big for the future’s adventure, just as they are big for all this mission’s history, which now is our duty to put into its new and coming order.

Now is a Time to Push Forward

(excerpt from Kaylyn's AUG 2020 newsletter)

We are all the time looking for new people to join in the mission, but recently I have been pushing the message extra hard because change is coming to this island. The Schmidts, my island family and the people who first pioneered youth ministry to military teens on Oahu, are moving back to the mainland mid-next year. This does not mean the end of what we are doing here, it means a push forward. We’re working up a two-year transition plan that will ensure ministry continues to run without skipping a beat. Something that I’ve learned in my short time of working in ministry is that people, when given a mission, always step in to help. I’ve never had a moment where people didn’t come through when they were needed.
