On August 8, 2023, what is described as the nation’s deadliest wildfire in 100 years began to rage. Fires in three separate areas of our island brought about great devastation (the greatest being in the town of Lahaina). Many lives and many homes were lost that day!

For the first several months following the fires, the Reach Maui Ministry, through its first church plant (Haumāna Baptist Church), constructed a plan to provide material and spiritual aid in the form of what we called “aid boxes.” Each aid box included a genuine leather Bible, a personal note from a member of our church, a Gospel presentation, and a $500 Foodland gift card. 


With the generous donations of so many churches and individuals, we far exceeded what we thought we could ever do by providing over 163 aid boxes along with other aid. 


As we continued this aid into 2024, we began to recognize that we would no longer be able to continue our original relief plan due to the high cost of each aid box. After prayerful consideration, we outlined a new plan (which you can read here) that focuses on the continued care of Maui residents with whom we already provided aid, along with a new way to help others who may contact us for assistance moving forward. 


Maui still has a long road of recovery ahead, and we do not doubt that God has us here for such a time as this. As long as we are able, we will continually provide both spiritual and material aid to those affected by the Maui Fires. 


In doing this, we would greatly appreciate your continued help by donating to our church plant's fire relief fund to purchase genuine leather Bibles (about $40 each) that will be given to those who contact us for aid moving forward. Each Bible purchased will be given with a Gospel presentation and a resource guide that will have links to various assistance programs being offered to those affected by the fires. 


Be assured that every dollar of financial aid you send through Haumāna Baptist Church will be used to provide both physical and spiritual aid directly to Maui residents. As this aid is given, we will continue to share updates on how God uses this aid for His glory through our regular monthly updates


Mahalo to all who have and will give toward our relief efforts!
