5 more days til I head out for Nadi, Fiji. This year has flown by. A year ago I was in Fiji loving everything about it and seeking out God's will for me as I had just graduated college. I am in awe of how God works and how He reveals Himself in unexpected ways. I praise God for being able to be home this year with family and friends, experience my first year of teaching, and for the abundant opportunities to serve in different areas of ministry. Balancing a full-time job, leadership positions in my church, and raising financial support for Fiji was definitely not an easy task. God sustained me through it all. When I thought I was at the end of my rope, God renewed my spirit and gave me the strength to persevere. He is truly faithful. I have been blessed by family and friends who give and want to support the ministry I will have in Fiji. There is a reason I grew up participating in mission trips, jumping at every opportunity to teach and mentor youth, and being raised in Evangelism Explosion. I am excited to use the things I have learned through all these experiences in Fiji. I can't wait to develop bonds with people in Fiji by sharing the love of our Savior and showing them that a relationship with Jesus Christ is priceless. I look forward to training others to share their faith and how to teach others to do the same. My prayer is that God would use me in this ministry to glorify His Name and advance His Kingdom. I'm excited to see the Lord work and how I will draw closer to Him each day. And I can't wait to see my Fiji family: Pastor Nakiti, Ima, Panapasa, Bill, Joka, Serai, Sally, Eta, Adi, Sai, Tevita, Tomasi.

Please be praying for:
my flight (safety and no obstacles)
settling into my new home and surroundings
recruiting young people in Fiji to be part of my ministry
EE clinics and follow-up in Labasa, Fiji (July 11-25th)
Ministry meetings in Wollongong, Australia (August 10-15th)
