This morning, Jill, a Golden Oldie graduate from last year drove an hour from Ashburton to Christchurch to deliver more books to take to Fiji.
“I’m so envious of the group going this year, they will have such a wonderful experience” Jill says as another box of books is delivered for dispatch for the Fiji children.
Then, not to be out done, Jordan came along as a special guest. Jordan has just returned from the NZCMS Families Mission to Fiji, and came to offer his insights and advice to this team, heading to Fiji for the first time.
“its really humid when you get off the plane, and take time to talk to everyone you meet. They are such lovely, warm and friendly people. And don’t forget to say ‘bula’ when you meet them.”
How great it is to see newly returned ‘short-term missionaries’ are already keen to inspire the next group to go and experience the enriching time they had. Thanks Geoffrey and Jordan.
