Aloha Dancers For God,      

Welcome to this new season of NHO Dance, purposed to train dancers to reach souls for Christ using dance both on & off the stage!  We will be offering our dancers the opportunity to worship through dance in church AND in the community; we are so blessed!!!  When you are able to dance in church, please INVITE your family and friends.  It may be the only time they will consider attending is to watch you dance.     

 Last night, I spoke to two beautiful hula sisters who dance wonderfully - I shared that in the early days of me dancing for God I would be BEYOND NERVOUS which perplexed me cause I danced in Waikiki for tourists with no anxiety.  There was an outreach that John & I did when I was 19 and he was 22 - I was uber nervous repeating this to calm my spirit “For God has not given me a spirit of fear but of love and of power and of a sound mind”…then I heard Him gently speak to my spirit that if I offer my dance as a gift to Him, first and foremost, then He will take care of blessing those watching…WOW it was then that ‘Dancing in the Spirit’ was born.  It freed me.  When you couple this gem from Him then allowing you to pull back the curtains of your heart you will be a beacon that will shine for Him!!! :))     

I want to thank Pastor Justin our Evangelism Pastor, Cindy Petersen our NHO Dance Ministry Director,  our wonderful teachers and all the volunteer hands and feet that go into creating this amazing opportunity to worship in our language! 

Feel free to email me with any comments.  Looking forward to this new session!
