Sign-Waving Rewards Waianae Businessman, Inspires Others

Paul Brewer started small. He cleaned cars for a living, and he waved signs whenever he could. With his wife and young son he stood along streets and highways in Waianae town, waving a sign depicting Jesus’s pierced palm with the words “His Pain Was Our Gain,” hoping to inspire at least one of the degenerate and homeless people roaming the town. He eventually added a second sign “Prayer Answers Things.” Years later his faith, hard work, and persistence earned him a thriving business in Waianae. He now operates Professional Detailing Services with his son Kyohei, whose Japanese name means “strong and respectful.” His business offers these services: washing and waxing, interior shampooing, engine cleaning, paint restoration, water spot removal, and any special request from customers.

Born and raised on the  Waianae Coast, Brewer attended schools in Nanakuli and Waianae and graduated from Waianae High School. He has many interests which keep him physically fit.  He is passionate about exercising, surfing at  Makaha Surfing Beach and Yokohama, and dancing. Most importantly, he made his name in bodybuilding competitions when he gained the title of “Mr. Waianae” in 1987 which he maintained for many years. Besides these personal pursuits, Brewer has committed his time to helping youth by joining the Oasis Christian Center, a dance ministry in Pearl City, where he shares his expertise in dancing. This dance center started with only five youngsters seven years ago and has grown presently to 150 young people.

Not content with helping only local youngsters, Brewer also supports orphans in Thailand where his wife was born. These orphans are the children of parents who have died from HIV. His contact for these orphanages  is  the JS English Center in Thailand. He makes five or six trips a year to Thailand to donate truckloads of food and personal supplies to these children. When Brewer’s friends learn about his various activities in business and charity, they urge him to write a book. He has taken their suggestion to heart and is  nearing completion of his book.
