A Prophecy Came True
Author: Nasako M. Weires-Madsen
He was truly a man of God. He was vibrant and courageous in his Christian faith. Realizing he was called by God to evangelize the islanders, he was determined to at least touch one heart and change a life amidst great persecutions. Sent by the church in the United States of America, the Christian missionary felt alone and neglected on an island full of people who didn't want to do anything with his Christian God and teachings. When he was ridiculed, laughed at, and mocked, he silently and reverently turned to God for encouragement, wisdom, and guidance. He spent many hours a day in prayers and reading his Bible, asking God for the grace he needs to overcome his trials and tribulations. Then one day, when he decided to leave the rebellious islanders in peace, out of the blue, God spoke through him and prophesied against the indigenous people and their island. Soon after, the prophesy came true and changed the lives of the present generation as well as the future generation forever! Consequently, to this day, the Christian faith is vibrant among the islanders in the Namoluk (Na-mo-look) atoll, Chuuk State, in the Federated States of Micronesia, both home and abroad.
The Lost History of the Mayflower's Sister Ship and its Rival Puritan Colony
Author: Tom Feiling
Pubpsher: Melville House
The creation myth of the United States begins with the plucky English puritans of the Mayflower--but what about the story of its sister ship, the Seaflower. Few people today know the story of the passengers aboard the Seaflower, who in 1630 founded a rival puritan colony on an isolated Caribbean island called Providence. They were convinced that England’s empire would rise not in barren New England, but rather in tropical Central America. However, Providence became a colony in constant crisis: crops failed, slaves revolted . . . and then there were the pirates. And, as Tom Feiling discovers in this surprising history, the same drama was played out by the men and women who re-settled the island one hundred years later. The Island That Disappeared presents Providence as a fascinating microcosm of colonialism--even today. At first glance it is an island of devout churchgoers - but look a little closer, and you see that it is still dependent on its smugglers. At once intimate and global, this story of puritans and pirates goes to the heart of the contradictory nature of the Caribbean and how the Western World took shape.
