HISTORY OF LIVING WATER PENTECOSTAL CHURCH
Pastor Manase and Esther Faualo answered the call of God in their lives while serving the Lord under a great mentor, teacher, spiritual father, man of God senior Pastor Dr Isakara Sataraka at the Good Samaritan Worship center church in Waipahu, Hawaii. On August 2009, they answered the call and revelation from the Lord about the cry of a hurting people at home and abroad. A revelation from the Lord was very clear that even the name of the church that God wanted Pastor Manase and Esther to start was revealed and translated. On September 6th, 2009 Living Water Pentecostal Church in Honolulu, Hawaii was born. People at home, families, friends, and neighbors responded to the gospel of Jesus Christ and received the Lord as their personal savior; some who backslide for years came back to the Lord and renewed their relationships with God as they hear the gospel being preached.
On September 9th, 2011 Pastor Manase and Esther Faualo responded to a need for a Pastor at a congregation of Samoan men, women and children in Vancouver, Washington who at the time was not a church but a group of God loving people who long to know more of the Lord through studying and praying together with one another, after many days of studying the word and praying together, they wanted to start a new church in Vancouver, Washington which was called, Heart of Worship Ministry. The preaching of the gospel and reaching people with the Good News continued on with this Church ministry at the time, but In 2012 in the midst of pastoring this wonderful Samoan congregation, God reminded Pastor Manase of His call in their lives, which they were called to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to all languages and all sorts of people from every walk of life, and God also reminded Pastor Manase and Esther Faualo of their message of freedom which is Jesus is the Living Water who will fill those who are thirsty and hungry for Him.
On November 4th, 2012, Living Water Pentecostal Church was born in Vancouver, Washington with the help of a few God fearing men, women and their children’s who felt called together with Pastor Manase and Esther Faualo to take the gospel to everyone. This group of men, women and their children’s worked very hard in fulfilling the call of the church which is to reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. In December 2012 we had our first outreach, ministering through Christmas songs and the sharing of the Word of God to the Old Folks Home in Portland for the elderlies. The sharing of the gospel continued on in the church and also to people’s homes through witnessing door to door outreach on foot. God was so faithful that after several months of sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone, He added more and more people into the ministry just as He revealed to Pastor Manase and Esther Faualo, that it will be a multicultural church with all types of people from every walk of life.
This is a short but brief story of how the Living Water Pentecostal church came about, and I pray that you will find this Church ministry as your place of worship and to serve God as He directs you.
With the success and blessings of the call of God in our lives, we can never neglect or forget our Mentors, Teachers, Role Models and especially they are our Spiritual Parents who pour their blessings and teachings over our lives. The tests and challenges of the ministry and the call that we face daily are real, but we have been taught and trained by them to know how to face them head on without giving up. We have seen that in their own lives and that's what keeps us going everyday. We have witnessed the challenges that they faced in their call, but they are still serving and pressing on encouraging people and preaching the Word of the Lord.
I believe this is what the Apostle Paul meant when he wrote to his spiritual son Timothy. Paul said in 2 Timothy 2:1-2, "You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit or entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others". This is what many have forgotten, they have forgotten the teachings of their Spiritual parents, once they know the word of God and they feel the sprinkle of the power of the Holy Spirit upon their lives, they forget the teachings and what they have learned from their Spiritual Parents. I believe this is what the Apostle Paul meant when he encouraged his spiritual son Timothy in the work of the Lord when Timothy was getting ready to give up.
We will never forget our spiritual parents teachings and their examples. We will forever be grateful to you both for your love, support and prayers. We wouldn't be where we are today if it were not for you both whom God have blessed us with. We believe that everyone who serves the Lord needs a Mentor, needs someone who has been there before to guide and to lead us. Yes we have the leading of the Spirit of God and some of us think that we do not need anyone or anybody's help but the Spirit of God, well you may be right in your own thoughts, but the Bible is very clear in Ephesians chapter 4 which tells us, that Jesus Gifted the Church with Pastors, Teachers, Prophets, Apostles and Evangelists. These offices are a gift from God to the church so they can teach and train the Body of Christ for the work of the Lord, and the Bible also tells us, to consider their lives and their ways.
This is who this wonderful gifted leaders above are in our lives. They are a gift that God has placed in our lives to train, teach and prepare us for our journey just as the Apostle Paul did with his spiritual son Timothy. They have trained us to focus on God always. There will be many obstacles, there will be many enemies along the journey, but keep our eyes on the prize and keep our focus on God, and we will do fine.
Thank you both very very much for everything, we will treasure every Word of Teachings and encouragements throughout our journey. You both will always be our Pastor, Mentor, Teacher and especially our Spiritual Parents. You will never be forgotten in our hearts.
We Love you both and May the Lords anointing flows tremendously always upon you, as you both continue to serve our God.
By Pastor Dr Manase and Esther Faualo
