For over 50 years, Our Savior has been blessed to work in the Aiea community - sharing and experiencing the love of Jesus.  Our community is very fluid - which comes with quite a few challenges - but it also means we get to meet some of the most amazing people from all over the world and together learn how God uses His people to make a difference.
