Nestled amongst lush vegetation and beauty, stands the Miracle Church in Wailua, Maui.
The Blessed church has been a place of refuge, prayer, peace, comfort and miracles to many who have visited and worshipped here.  Due to its' age and weather conditions, the roof is leaking, the walls are blistering, and the wood rafters and floors are termite eaten. 
We are humbly seeking monetary donations for the much needed repairs of the Miracle Church.
