Randall & Annie Kalama on Planting in Honolulu Chinatown 1 of 2
This is the story of a police officer and a school administrator renting space (with their own money) and planting a church in one of Honolulu's most difficult neighborhoods.
A gang shooting motivated the Kalamas to do "something more." They had already spent an evening each month on the streets of Honolulu's skid row when the violence occurred. That something more took the form of a microchurch that grew into much more.
Eleven years later the church is going strong. This story will inspire you to do something more where you live. Randall left a role as key worship leader in one of Hawaii's largest churches to do this ministry. God later took the family to New Mexico where they were able to minister to the Apache Nation. A battle with cancer later they are back in Honolulu and beginning a new ministry by making friends in a bar in their hometown, but you'll hear that next week in part 2 of this story.
