Bula friends,

I can't believe how fast the summer flew by. Does anyone else feel like that? So wild! We had an awesome summer and here is a small update of what is going on. Be sure to check out the video of our high school mission trip below. It was made by the church who came and it really gives a feel of what it was like to come and serve in the village. 

Last week, Pastor Dan who was the first Fijian pastor I lived with back in 2013 - and taught me pretty much everything I know about "how to become Fijian", shared with me some amazing news. He was serving in the village last week with a few other Christian men and they got the chance to share a message with the whole village about the love of God. He said that night, he baptised twenty-six people!

"Dude you dunked 26 people??? In one night?" 
I was stunned and started laughing. "Yeah sethy!" He laughed out loud in his unrestrained classic tala dan fashion, "He heeeeeeeeeeeeeee he he! It was really grrrrreat, God really touched their hearts!" 

Tala Dan, myself, and a group of people have spent a lot of time praying for this village over the last few years, and now to hear that those twenty six people, all people I know, experienced the love of God and made decisions to follow Jesus was so amazing to hear.

This village has a lot of pain underneath the surface. According to statistics it is one of the worst villages for domestic violence, drug use, and teenage pregnancy; and to hear the news that their hearts are breaking and they want forgiveness and a transformed life is just amazing. Miraculous. I'm not going to lie, I wish I was there for that last week. Funny how that works. But I told Tala Dan I'll be back soon and to keep up the good work.

Right now I'm currently in Utah. I'm working on organising a mission trip soon and creating a way to use the Wild Fijian Coffee to generate resource to help the village. It has been an adventure. Thanks to technology though I get to talk to our Fijian leaders almost every day and we send resource to help families every week. 

Thank you so much to everyone who gives sacrificially to change lives out in Fiji. I'm excited for whats ahead.

Who we are.

 

Empower Native Leaders - We believe the most effective way to positively impact Fiji is through encouraging and equipping the native leaders in the village to serve their community.

Village Projects - We do humanitarian projects to meet the physical needs of the people through carpentry, medicine, farming, and creating jobs. It's amazing how much impact happens when something as small as neosporne is available to the village.

Mission Trips - Exploring other cultures and traveling is a life changing opportunity. We host group trips with the intention of entering humbly, engaging in adventure, and serving with love in our hearts.
 

What's been happening?

Lifeline Community Church from Utah sent out a team of high school students to serve in a Fijian Village. We created some carpentry projects, farming, village volleyball, and beach days as we talked about life, our purpose, and what it means to follow God.

If you want to see what it would be like to serve in the Village, take a few minutes and check this out. One of the students, Alec, brought his drone and got some amazing footage.

Whats Coming Up.

 

December Trip
I'm praying we can put together a trip to help a single mother family who lost their house in a flood last year. The two young sons in this household have been my "little dudes" for the last few years.

The mom works so hard to take care of 4 kids and she is an amazing person with a bright smile every day. I would love to put together a team to go to the village and build a small house for their family.

The team will also bring back Wild Fijian Coffee that is ready and waiting to be brought back to the U.S. This coffee was harvested in the wild and dried and peeled with the villagers who need a way to create some income.

This Coffee will sold as a non-profit effort to generate resources that will be put it back in the community. I believe through this we can make an incredible impact both in Fiji and here stateside. 

I will have more about this Wild Coffee Project in our next update.

If you would like to participate in this upcoming trip, or just talk about how you can be a part of mission fiji, email me at:
