When I got blessed with the opportunity to go
to Fiji, I knew it wasn't going to be the typical tourist trip.
Especially in light of the fact that I was going with Mrs. Mara
Fulmer, and that I took a suitcase stuffed full of Bibles, videos,
cassettes etc... to give away. It was an experience of a lifetime,
jammed packed with the most interesting things to do and see! ...And
the Bibles, they went so quickly, I could have given a semi load
away just as easily. The Christian people are so hungry and appreciative
of these things. I promised them I would do my best to send more.
...Well, that's another whole project that has begun to take form.
I have connected with our 'Missionettes' group at church. The leader
is so excited to work with me and involve her students with this
missionary project. We will be corresponding with 10 year old Melaia,
and her school in the village of Namuamua. I will never forget my
brothers and sisters in Fiji. We will always be united now for a
common goal, to grow together in Christ.
