Pray for partnerships

Please be praying for these potential partnerships:

Auckland Bible Church, NZ

In October I got to show Justin (Tandem Director) and Tim (Senior Pastor of Auckland Bible Church) around Nadi and the campus. Pst Tim is planning on bringing a team of about 8-12 church members for a one week mission trip to Nadi in July next year.

  • Pray for the team as they raise their support
  • Pray for their time on campus and opportunities to link up with the churches nearby

Operation Mobilisation

With Mr Bloomfield (WEC), Mr Asif (OM) and Nathan (Cru)

Sunday afternoon Nathan and I, along with his father-in-law Mr Bloomfield (WEC) met with Mr Asif from OM UK in talking about strategies to help reach Muslims while continuing to encourage Christian workers in the field. 

*Sorry, that’s about all I can share online* 

But here is how you can be praying:

  • For wisdom and strength to share the Gospel message
  • That God would guide us to meet those whom he has prepared to listen
  • God would take those who have heard the Gospel to apply it to other listening hearts

FamilyLife

We’ve been so encouraged by having FamilyLife staff John and Julie Majors (and family) here in Fiji for the past six months. It’s been such a great time to get to know each other, learn and also talk about ministry. One of the things that Judith and I have been feeling God impress on our hearts lately is the need to reach out to the handful of young couples at church. The Majors helped us see that as full-time workers we also need to invest as much; if not more, into discipling our own kids and learning to love our spouses better. 

We’re looking forward to starting our very own “home-group” with other couples next year to learn more about Godly parenting.  For now here’s how you can be praying specifically:

  • Pray for 4-6 couples to join us in going through FamilyLife’s the Art of Parenting material
  • Opportunities to assist and learn from Pita and Mere Nacuva (FamilyLife Directors, Fiji) 
  • Attend a “Weekend to Remember” event with two more couples (friends of ours)

Praise Report

One of our main prayer points this year has been that God would send more workers to our campus. We were praying specifically for female staff since they represent the big percentage of the student population.

We’re happy to announce that Kelera (Lela) will be joining our team next year. Lela has just graduated from New Staff Training and was recently based at the Fiji National University campus in Nasinu near Suva.

Lastly, please pray for another female staff member (can’t name at the moment) from the US who currently works with international students in Australia. She’ll be coming to Fiji in April to visit the campus and meet with the team to explore the possibilities of doing ministry here in the West.

A prayer

We pray for those who suffer because of their experience of grief, for those who have lost someone they love and have no one to share it with and for those whose hearts are heavy and aching and there seems to be no one who understands, for those who are finding it hard to cope with their sadness and sorrow and those overwhelmed with their grief.

We pray for those who suffer because of the actions of others: for those whose lives are damaged through someone’s neglect or whose future plans are wrecked by someone’s thoughtlessness.

May they know that the powerful arms of God are always around them.

Mid-November Update

Hi everyone,

sorry for being absent from the blogosphere for a while. I now have only one paper left till I’m done with final school term for the year 2011. I can’t wait for it to be over and done with so that I can fully concentrate on raising support for IndyCC. So far the response has been good but I have to follow-up with people. There is still quite a way to go (financially) as each of us going has to raise FD$6000. So if you feel in your heart that you’d like to help please feel free to send a message so that I can forward you details on how you can do so.

I would also like to share that I have been chosen (alongside my good friend Biu – sick blog here) to attend a two week short film making workshop this December in Melbourne, Australia. This will be facilitated by the Global Short Film Network in partnership with Campus Crusade for Christ (Short Film School website).

I’m super excited! Thank you Student Life Fiji for this great opportunity.

The STINTers returned home last Sunday. Yep, back to the states. It’s been a blessing having them in uni. this year. And for me personally, I could say that I have learnt so much… especially form the guys (Dave, Rob and my discipler Brian). I really miss seeing them around the White Tables but I’m looking forward to visiting them in a few weeks time. Brian’s arranged for me to spend Christmas with his family in Cincinnati, Ohio.

But… Continue reading Mid-November Update

And we know that God causes everything to work togetherfor the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Roman 8:28

It’s the second week of the semester and students here at the University of the South Pacific are finalising their timetables and getting settled into classes.  Today after spending much of the morning designing t-shirts and banners for the Wansolwara[1] (One Ocean – One People), I walk up to the White Tables[2] to meet with Biu[3].

Dear Jesus (2nd March 2011)

Dear Jesus,

Please bless everyone that browses through the pages of this blog and help them see that you are portrayed in every word that i write and picture that i upload. Help me not to discourage but to build and encourage. Help me abstain from gossip, slander, backbiting, deceit, over-exaggeration (and misspellings :D) And may every reader realise that it is you who holds everything in its place and holds everything in your hand through my testimony.
