What an adventure it has been. Thank you for your continued prayers and support. I am so excited for what God has in store for us this year. I am finally done with new staff training and have committed to continue serving full-time as a staff of Campus Crusade for Christ here in Fiji and the Pacific (or wherever God leads).
During our time of evaluation last year we were able to revisit our vision for the ministry and look at some of the results of God’s work through us on campus. Thank you for helping make this possible. Below I have also included our goals for 2016.
FIJI CAMPUS CRUSADE FOR CHRIST VISION
“Fiji is trusting the Lord to be the hub for spiritual movements in the Pacific; having over a hundred full-time, fully-funded staff in 10 different locations in the Pacific by the year 2020.”

JUDITH IN FIJI FOR SHORT TRAINING
We really saw God move in amazing way. At the beginning of the year we were unsure whether she’d be able to make it over but we praise God for friends that offered to pay for her ticket. It’s so great to have her here. She’s enjoying her time of learning and practice. Here’s a short extract from what she wrote in her most recent update.
“A call made 3 years ago has finally transpired. As I transition into campus ministry I anticipate what God has in store for me. I am excited for the lives that will be affected along the way by His great love and grace. This past month has seen the beginning of my new venture with Campus Crusade for Christ. Firstly through a Discipleship Ministry Partner Development training (DMPD); sharing with family and friends and friends of friends the opportunity of investing in this ministry…”
Judith, (my lovely fiancée) is currently still with Scripture Union Vanuatu but will be joining Campus Crusade in June.
ORIENTATION WEEK AT USP
We currently have teams of staff and students this week at USP engaging with new students. Yesterday alone I was told that they were able to get about 700 students to fill out survey forms. Please pray that students will be available to meet up next week as we begin following up with them.
This month I’ll be accompanying a team of three Koreans to Vanuatu, helping with the campus ministry there. We have a growing movement on Emalus campus and over the years we’ve been able meet with many students during our mission projects. However, the students have never had any staff on the ground to help in discipleship. I’m excited for the challenge! This will also be a great opportunity to be with Judith as we prepare for our upcoming wedding in May. I leave with the Koreans on the 21st of February and will be in Vanuatu till the end of June. Please be praying that we’ll be able to find a suitable accommodation close to USP.
Please pray for Judith and I (and our respective families) as we prepare for our wedding day on the 21st of May. Pray that everything would just come into place accordingly and that we won’t be anxious about it. Lastly, pray for God’s provision. We are already beginning to see Him move and use people to bless us.
