Aloha our blessed parish 'ohana,
What is enough?

Many years ago, 35 to be exact, I was on the kitchen team of a women's weekend retreat at a large, older urban church. It was great weekend that was full of comradery and fun. On Saturday night we, as a team, decided that it would be a wonderful Sunday morning breakfast treat to have egg bake casseroles. We made our list and off to the store we went. We came back with all the ingredients and began to make the egg bakes for about 100 people. If you have made an egg bake, you know they are to be refrigerated overnight and then baked in the morning. The team arose at 6:00 AM to preheat the ovens and start the coffee. Breakfast was to be at 8:00 AM sharp. We, again as a team, did not put into consideration the time it would take to preheat those large older ovens. Also, in our haste to get them made and into the refrigerator, we did not calculate correctly and did not make enough pans to feed 100 people. We had two hours. No way we could make more casseroles and to our chagrin the ovens took over 30 minutes to heat up! The egg bakes had been in the refrigerator overnight, and were cold! Long story, kind of short, the egg bakes did not get done by 8:00 AM! The edges were done but not the center, and we did not have enough food! The women lined up for breakfast, the coffee was poured, Grace was offered.
The pans came out of the oven. We began to serve the edges and after the edges were served the pans went back into the oven to keep cooking. One came out, one went back in. I was praying, asking God for another miracle like the loaves and fishes. Please God make this be enough. Please God bake these eggs. Please God help us! We served 100 women and everyone had a piece of egg bake that was fully cooked and there was enough left over for the churches fellowship time! We stood there after all were fed and spontaneously started singing the Doxology. All of us in one voice praising God for helping 8 women who put their complete trust in him.  

To me this is as close as it gets to this week’s Gospel of Jesus' miracle of the loaves and fishes. How many times do we think we do not have enough? What is enough? Our kitchen team thought we needed to give out large slices to show abundance, but all we needed to give was an adequate amount so that all would be filled.  In Christ there is always enough.  Maybe not exactly how we expected it, but enough just the same. Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!
Blessings to you all,

Linda+
A Hui Hou, Aloha, and Mahalo Susan!
Please send your aloha to staff member Susan Acacio. This is her last day as our Keiki, Youth, and Family Ministries Coordinator, as she is retiring. She has faithfully served in this position the past four years. Many of us are now a part of this parish ʻohana because of her. She has been a light that has shined brightly in our lives and helped point the way to the littlest in our midst to Jesus.

You can email Susan at Youth@StJamesHawaii.org or send her a note to St. Jamesʻ Church, PO Box 278, Kamuela, HI 96743.

We are deeply sad that the present times dictate that we cannot shower her with our love at a party we want to give her. Please consider making a donation in her name to World Vision. CLICK HERE to donate through St. James to World Vision or HERE to donate directly to World Vision in honor of Susan. World Vision is one of her favorite missionary charities. She has helped teach our keiki and youth to spread the grace of God by showing them grace. Many times, over the years, Susan partnered our Youth Program with World Vision. Much good has been done around the world because of Susan connecting our keiki and youth in mission.

God bless you dear Susan! We love you and thank you. We thank God for sending you to us. CLICK HERE to watch a second video tribute to Susanʻs Ministry.

Mahalo to Cissy Levins and Donna Brown. They spent all day Tuesday in the Parish Office as they graciously accepted the call to volunteer to audit our parish financial records. The diocese requires us to do an annual parish audit. It was an extra challenge this year with observing all the physical distancing protocols and wearing masks, but they did it. God bless them! Their ministry is vital part of our being good stewards of our finances and more specifically what people give to support the work of ministry. Mahalo Donna and Cissy! Mahalo to our Bookkeeper, Clara, and Jaisy, our Parish Administrator, for having all ready for them.
Hand Sanitizing

You will notice hand sanitizer dispensers at the entrance of most of our doorways.
Mahalo to our Sexton, Malu Lindsey, for creating and installing them.

PLEASE USE THEM . They are there to help keep you and everyone safe. We continue to adapt to our new reality. Remember to wash your hands and in the words of Julian of Norwich, "All Shall Be Well."

ST. COLUMBA’S KITCHEN
REFURBISH UPDATE

From the Vestry:

As shared in previous parish newsletters, St. Columba has held numerous baked good sales to generate funds earmarked for the improvement of their approximately 66 years old, small kitchen with the hope to one day be able to prepare a Community Meal much like what is done at St. James’.  

With these existing funds along with personal contributions made to this project and the vestry voting to help with additional resources from our reserve, our Junior Warden, Tim Bostock, with vestry approval, engaged the service of a Honokaa architect to draw preliminary plans.  Input from Tim, Rev. Linda and others were provided to the architect.

Then, because of the highly contagious Coronavirus disease, nonessential businesses were forced to shut down, household income(s) were lost and keiki are home all day and every day of the week due to closure of schools.  St. Columba wanted to help their community by preparing a weekly Community Meal but without a workable kitchen to safely prepare a large quantity of food, this was not possible.   

But, with God, nothing is impossible. This loving and much needed outreach, more important now than ever, is taking place but not without logistic challenges ….
On  Tuesday, April 21, 2020,  the Community Meal coordinator and dedicated volunteers in Waimea prepared the first of many hot meals including vegetables and desserts at the St. James’ kitchen for St. Columba.  Prepared food is packed in respective warmers and coolers then delivered to Pa’auilo for volunteers to hand out by way of drive-through and delivery.
We’ve just completed 15 consecutive weekly meals at St. Columba, handing out a total of  5,061  meals during this period. What a blessing this has been to so many families.

St. Columba’s parishioners are excited in anticipation that one day soon they’ll have an upgraded kitchen to prepare their own Community Meal.  

Considering that four of our current vestry members came to St. Jamesʻ via our Community Meal, we see this project not only as a means to meet an immediate need in feeding those during this Pandemic, but for on-going evangelism and church growth.  The meal has put St. Columba on the map in the hearts of people all along the Hamakua Coast in a new and vibrant way.  People know they can come and be fed in “body and soul.”  The meal is an extension of our Communion table.

Tim has submitted a number of grant applications for this project and anticipates hearing the results to his efforts within the next couple of months.  Let’s all pray for good news!

If you would like to give specifically to this project or know of other organizations or grants we can connect with, please contact the Parish Office as soon as possible.


SAVE THE DATE! St. Columba's will have an outdoor Thrift Sale on Saturday August 29th from 8:00am to 4:00pm. We will continue to have the $5.00 a bag for clothing and will have other items priced for quick sale.  
Mark the date and tell others. Hope to see you there!

DONATIONS




The Thrift Store ministry has been so BLESSED with the wonderful amount of donations that we have received! We would like to be able to hold off on receiving any donations for the next couple of weeks while we sort and restock our shelves. Thank you for your understanding!

A HUI HOU, RAYNETTE

The Thrift Store would like to bid a found farewell and pay an honorable tribute to a dear volunteer, Raynette Guzman. 

She has served faithfully in our ministry for over 8 years! With a kind and loving heart, she has reached out beyond the the thrift store to those in need, generously giving of herself to strangers and all who know her.

Raynette has been a major part of the store with her hard work pricing and keeping up with donations. Loved by all, she will certainly be missed. May God Bless You as you embark on your new journey to Bend, Oregon. 
THRIFT STORE SPECIAL SALES
St. James’ Thrift Store Ministry is greatly blessed with donations that fund our mission and ministry! The higher end items we often set aside to sell at the Church’s annual Christmas Bazaar Silent Auction. We also sometimes consign them to local stores and galleries, receiving a percentage of the profits.

In the time of COVID-19, however, with retail shopping scant & group gatherings down, we have decided to try something new, and that is to sell these new, collectible, antique or finer items via email & internet blitzes. Church members & volunteers will have access to this information on Friday before we post sale items on Facebook Marketplace on Saturday.

The funds generated from TS Special Sales will be used by St. James' Parish for our ministries and community outreach projects. 

If you find a treasure you MUST have before sales items are posted on the "St. James Special Thrift Shop Sales" Facebook page tomorrow ( link below), you have until 10 PM tonight to email Deacon your BIN (Buy it Now) order.


Otherwise, on-line sales begin tomorrow at noon on our Facebook page. (You need to join Facebook and that page in order to buy.)

August 1-5: Bon Dance! Japanese and other Asian-made items.

The Thrift Shop now has the ability to take direct online payments. So if you see something you like, and need details or want to buy it, contact Deacon at  tafahijoe@gmail.com .
 Jeanne Cooper has come on board (thank you!) to help out with on-line sales.
  - OBO Tuesday on.
  - High-end donations always accepted. 
 Have fun shopping and thanks you for supporting the Thrift Shop and St. James.

It is so hard to believe that my 4 years as Youth Ministry Coordinator has come to an end. I never really looked at my position as a job but as a Ministry. It never felt like work. It felt like fun. My life has been enriched by the families and keiki that have come to our St. James’ 'ohana. And the St. James’ Congregation is an amazing group of folks that really know how to “Walk the Walk”. What an impact you all have had on our wonderful Waimea community. I am so proud to be a part of that. I am not leaving the Parish, just leaving the “job”. I am really looking forward to being a volunteer again.
 
With all of that being said, I could not have done my job without MY dedicated and loving volunteers. They are the ones that made the magic happen. You know who you are! Always willing to try new things. Always willing to put your own spin on some of the things we did. And always done with love, enthusiasm, and pure joy. Our families picked up on that joy and continued to participate in our programs. We sure had some fun. And we planted some seeds in some very fertile soil. The youth volunteers made my job easy and lifted me up in a way I could never have imagined. What a blessing!!
 
We will get to the other side of COVID-19. We will look forward and continue to pray for each other. We will support each other and do what needs to be done. Cisco and I are looking forward too. We really want to do some traveling while we are still able to get around. We will be building our new home at our small ranch in Papa’aloa. That has been a dream of ours for many years. We just need to keep looking forward and keep our eyes on Jesus. Don’t forget that Jesus has our Backs.
 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love you have graced me with. Many blessings, and A Hui Hou.

A Vegan Feast to Delight Everyone!
 
This week our Meal was prepared by the North Hawaii Jewish Group, also the main sponsor for the evening. They sent half a dozen young folk to chop all the vegetables on Wednesday, then came today to cook up huge portions of delicious Vegan Chili, and had their members make vegan desserts of cookies, Brownies, and cupcakes. All served with brown rice, bread, green salad and cucumber/tomato salad.  We actually served 605 Meals tonight to 135 cars, and 7 walk-ups. That’s a slightly lower number than usual – in the month of July we served 7/2 – 663; 7/9 – 644; 7/16 – 616; 7/23 – 665 and now 7/30 – 605, for an average of 640 a week. When we have leftovers it never goes to waste. Tonight I delivered a large box of Vegan Chili, Rice and Bread to the Waimea Firefighters – and heard a cheer from inside the firehouse as one of the fighters is Vegan!

Our morning Chop Crew took the week off thanks to the North Hawaii Jewish Group. Our Packing Crew got to work at 2:30 pm, and had the line fully stocked by the time the bell rang at 4:30 pm. As always the first 30 minutes was fast and furious, helped along by the finest Motown tunes from the PA. We were helped by our second sponsor tonight – Bree and John Peters, who also brought Chuck Gessert and Cindy Montgomery to car hop. Other regulars on the car hop crew tonight were Tori Greco and Vera Mahoney, Sean Dunnington and Tali Ritterbush, Mel Holt and Tim Bostock, Bishop Tracey Jost from LDS, Eric Savage, David+ and Marnie+ and our glorious leader Frankie Pang. Big thanks to the best traffic controllers in Waimea Gerrit Keator and Peter Helmick!

Clean-up was fast and we took a moment to say  Mahalo Nui Loa  and  A Hui Hou  to Raynette Guzman, a valued member of our Packing Crew, and Grace Bollinger, who is leaving for Tufts University after initiating the Meal Internship Program. Happily, Tori Greco will take on the mantle for the next two months. The Meal Intern is specifically responsible for the scheduling of sponsors, and setting up the kitchen on Tuesdays and Thursdays, making rice, and supporting Sue in many other ways.

We thank God that the need in our community seems to be stabilizing at least. We’re also aware that there are several more food ministries in operation, especially the Grab & Go meals offered by Waimea Preservation Society on Mondays and Fridays. Annunciation Church Food Pantry served a record 180 produce bags this week, and Kokua Christian Ministry is serving upwards of 150 a week, when they used to serve 50-60 families. Ippy’s is still making meals for the Senior Housing residents on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the County is providing hefty produce bags every other Friday, at various locations. As a community we are looking after each other, and we will continue to do so!

With much Aloha,

Tim Bostock and Sue Dela Cruz  
 
 
As always there is a call out for cooks, cookie bakers, meal planners.  If you are interested in helping us in any way, contact Sue Dela Cruz, at  eat@stjameshawaii.org  .

Pa'auilo Community Meal Tuesdays
St. Columba's
4:30-5:30 PM

Tuesday Community Meal was Susan Acacio's last time as a volunteer as St. James' and St. Columba's Youth Director. Susan came every week to the meal with a fun craft for the keiki and handed them out with love and cheerfulness that could not be contained. We will miss her vivacious personality and her willingness to do anything that promotes children and their well being. Well Done Auntie Susan!! St. Columba's gave her lei and a card of appreciation for all that she has done for our Keiki. Susan you will be missed!
A Night for a Smorgasbord

The bell rang and the Community Meal began at 4:30 on the dot.  The cars had been lining up in anticipation of the good food that has become the talk of the community of Pa'auilo and beyond.

This week everyone was treated to a delicious smorgasbord consisting of soups, venison stew, spaghetti, mac and cheese, and/or zucchini pie. Rice or sandwich, bread, and cookies were added to round out the nutritious meal. We served 426 meals as our carhops Sharon Alfonso, Susan Acacio and Rev. Linda were kept busy handing out the meals with shaka's, aloha's and behind the mask smiles.

The Morning Chop Crew (video above) was on the ball this week! Mahalo to Grace Bollinger, our summer intern, who got things going with the chop crew. Sue had some car issues to deal with and was late coming in. Tuesday's Morning Chop Crew went to work, washing all the veggies, cutting tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers and bread, making sandwiches, soup, and rice-all was ready by noon!  

Rain or shine, our Transportation Crew brings the meals and goodies down from St. James’ to St. Columba; all to be ready for packing by 3:30 pm!  

Another stellar job by the St. Columba’s Packing Crew, packing 426 meals in 1 ½ hours!! This week’s packing volunteers were: Wilma Oshiro, Jeanne Witt, Alice Ishii, Felicina Laeda, Jesse Rodriguez, Millie Yagin, Vicky Tagaca, Josephine Cariaga, Juanita Wusstig, and Barbara Odegaard. 

Andi Kaida brings meals to those who do not have transportation and she leaves early so she can deliver hot piping meals to her waiting kupuna.

Our cookie and tea bread bakers, Pat Anderson, Sherry Dupaya, Nancy and Harry Edmondson, Wilma Oshiro and Dr. Michael Sze outdid themselves with enough treats for 450.  Every meal gets two goodies so that is 900 treats!!!

Thank you to our Traffic Control Crew, Bill Heaney, Ben Feliciano and Bob Lundgren, who keep the traffic smooth and perfectly spaced!

If you are interested in either helping with sponsoring a meal or volunteering to chop, cook, pack, and/or car hop, please contact Sue Dela Cruz at  eat@stjameshawaii.org  and we’ll get you in the rotation!
