There is a historic "strip" of land that stretches from Captain Cook to the last fishing village in Hawai'i, Miloli'i. South Kona mission zone is home of the likes of Captain Cook's monument (marking the location of his death in 1779) and Kealekekua Bay, where coffee first arrived on the island in 1828. If you are visiting here because of your interest in the rich history of South Kona or if you are associated with this beautiful part of the Big Island, we don't consider it an accident.
While you're visiting, we ask that you please offer this prayer specifically for South Kona:
God, South Kona and the people that call it home are dear to your heart. Your Son has made redemption for this land possible, and your Spirit has been sent to awaken us to this reality.
God, what pain in this part of the Big Island needs healing? What brokenness needs mending? What darkness needs hope?
For South Kona, I pray that your redeeming love and grace would be evident through your church there. Amen
