News from Fiji… posted by jwatson on Jun 19, 2008
This morning I received an email from our director of the youth work for Oceania. He is in the middle of a two month missions experience for young people considering missions as a calling. It is being conducted at our D. James and Anne Kennedy Center for World Evangelism in Fiji. I’m copying his letter here for you to read. If you know of any young people considering missions, this is a wonderful immersion course that teaches them evangelism and missions in a real-world environment. Have them contact Langdon, Scott Carson, or Shirley Beattie for more information.
Praise God for Langdon and his team and pray for these young men and women as they seek the Lord.
Thanks for your continued prayer for our group of young Americans and Fijians who are currently at our training centre in Fiji for 6 and a half weeks. They are a great group of young people, and in their first week have already been involved in learning about themselves, EE, theology and doing a service project in a local village. Please pray for them as they ask God the question: “What do you want me to do with my life in missions?”
One of our Fijian participants came to Christ last year. When asked how that happened she told how two girls visited her village and shared the gospel with her family and she prayed to receive Christ. It turns out those two girls (Emma Wade & Kelsey Cole) were part of last years Figtree Anglican Mission trip. Not only did she accept Christ, but wanted to learn how to tell stories that will help her share with her own friends, which she has been doing, and now wants to do it in a more full time way. Its a great reminder what God says about His word “..it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11
Please pray as we are doing our very first XEE workshop in Australia this week (Friday 20th / Sat 21st June) at Eagle Vale Anglican in Sydney. We have 5 churches participating and they will have opportunities to connect with the local community during the training. Pray it will go well and see those churches go and equip others to share their faith!
Thanks & God Bless,
