He Gives His Very Best

by Joy Addiss, Preschool Director

     Leaving a ministry is a hard thing to do, especially after 19 years of investing and laboring in love at the preschool.
     When the Lord called me back in July 2017 to prepare for my next adventure, my heart was willing but my flesh was weak.  Kalihi Union Church Preschool had become my life, and the children and families had become my extended ohana.  How could I leave them behind?  Who would take over from me?  Who could I trust and feel safe passing on the preschool to?
     With all my questions, I went to the Father.  “Lord, You know I will follow wherever You lead, but please find someone with a heart like mine so I can have peace about leaving my families in his/her care.”  That was my daily request.  I told God that I would not leave unless He gave me a sign that He had heard my prayers.
     If you were in church when I shared about my Daniel School vision, you heard me share that in the last 3 years, I had met 5 people who have a similar heart and vision like me.  Well, I’m so overjoyed to let you know that Karen Maluo, our new preschool director, was one of those 5!
     I kept telling my preschool parents that God was going to bring our school someone just like me who will take the preschool into its future of great things.  No kidding!  I LOVE KAREN!  If God had asked me, I would have chosen her (but I thought she would never leave her school behind).
     God our Father is so awesome!  He gives only His very best so we can surrender to His voice and His Spirit as He leads us on.  Karen has a heart like mine, the heart of our Father in heaven, but she comes equipped with the skills and knowledge about accreditation, the next step for our preschool.
     Please welcome Karen and her family into the Kalihi Union Church ohana.  As you have cared for me, please do so for Karen.  Pray for her and get to know her.  You, too, will love her.  I have great peace as I prepare to follow hard after God.  The preschool is in good hands, God’s and Karen’s!  Thank You, Lord!
The Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory…
no good thing will He withhold from those who love and trust Him.”
-Psalm 84:11
