Our next Golden Oldies Mission tour to Fiji is running from Saturday 9 September to Tuesday 19 September 2017.
Building on the successful of the previous year’s tours, it will run for around 11 days, and we are based in Suva.
The team is hosted by the wonderful families of the St John’s Bible College. This year we are returning to the newly refurbished and expanded Bible College campus.
We will take you to see and experience the missions the Church is involved in, from local schools specialising in supporting the students from squatter settlements and remote villages, to an orphanage, to squatter settlements, visit and be welcomed in a tin church built in under a week, and experience an evening traditional Fijian dinner and cultural celebration at a remote village.
A development of these Missions, is running the ‘Interns’ and ‘Graduates’ Mission together.
The ‘Interns’ are our first -timer Golden Oldies and we will take you to visit a number of mission projects -as outlined in our blog stories.
Our ‘Graduates’ are Golden Oldies who enjoyed their ‘internship’ mission so much that they are returning to offer their skills and life knowledge for specific mission projects.
At the end of the mission the team plan again to visit a cyclone devastated region, and hearing the stories from a village where 27/31 houses were destroyed. The Church, and Golden Oldies are supporting the redevelopment of the village and this will be a day trip to the top of the main island near the end of the mission.
Then to finish off the trip we will take you for 2 nights experience at a tourist resort. This gives us time for a bit of ‘R and R’, and reflection for what we have experienced before returning to NZ.
