VINAKA! Fiji

Saying good bye to our Bible College was very sad. They have cared for us with warmth of friendship and incredible hospitality throughout the past 7-days. We are indebted to them.

Golden Oldies and Bible College family share a final Thanksgiving service to God

Golden Oldies and Bible College family share a final Thanksgiving service to God

The Golden Oldies Mission in partnership with St Johns Bible College and the Anglican Church of Polynesia has seen the team learn so much. A sample of these things include learning about life in remote village for squatters communities, education to give students a second change to gain qualifications -even if you’re a young Mother, speak at a prison that has invited a new Christian ministry to continue there, establish partnerships with a small busy maternity hospital delivering an average of 3 babies every day, and the medical centre where Adele and Andrea spent time -being so appreciative of the donated medical equipment supplied by donation s form NZ supporters, to helping to offer further biblical insights to ministers and Sunday School teachers from the workshops run, and others gaining confidence to either expand or start a small business. And more…

The Golden Oldies also launched a Micro-finance programme to offer loans for small business start-ups. There has been 6 expressions of interest already, ranging from a ladies group in a squatter village wanting to buy a wooden row boat for fishing-instead of wading into the water up to their chest, and a mens group wanting to start a pig farm.

Finally. we express our thanks to our friends and supports, residents of Archer, and Golden oldies from previous trips for their prayers and support during this mission.
