Dear Friends and Family,
My friends please forgive me!
During these last few months I fell into a social media black hole. I didn't post anything or send any emails. Mostly because I have been organizing things in the states and lacked the discipline/inspiration to post about them. I don't post much personal social media either so some people thought I had simply disappeared. I'm so sorry about that.. but I'm getting back on the horse! It should be easier now though because I'm back in the South Pacific with my village!
While at home in the US, I was very fortunate to be able to attend a few significant family/friend get togethers. Some were celebratory. The other was a 10 year memorial for one of my best friends growing up who had passed away. I needed to reconnect with his family.
I was anxious to be back in Fiji, but after experiencing what had transpired over the summer, it was very clear I needed to be home. And with that, I was able to prepare for some exciting things coming up for Mission Fiji (which you can find out more by clicking the "Vision PDF" above).
So it has been a very productive and important few months.... but please forgive my lack of sharing what has been going on. One of my board members mentioned to me... "Dude, we all know that you are working hard on ministry, but other supporters who haven't seen you, and don't live in Oregon or Utah, need to know what is going on!" He was totally right. And I apologize for that quiet media output.
I have been in weekly contact with our Fijian pastors the whole time I have been away from the village. Our Mission Fiji resources have gone toward supporting a Pastor and his family full time, supporting widowed families, and a farming project. I will be sharing about these families during the next month through our social media. It's so cool that we have trusted and capable relationships and technology to make this happen even while I'm away. Our Native Leaders are amazing!
