GOM Leaders Graeme and Jane, ready for another mission

The Golden Oldies Mission team return to Fiji for their 7th mission.

“Its about partnering with the Anglican and Christian Churches, along with associated Christian ministries, bringing Gods love for people the team meet”, say GOM leaders Graeme and Jane.

The team works in partnership with the Anglican Church of Polynesia Bible College/MAST in Fiji. The team of Caroline, Pate and Sepi, Dean, and Tekape with watchful oversight by GOM Co-founder Rev. Amy Chambers are ready for the next mission.

“We have been preparing and organising this mission for months, and its heart-warming to have these ‘Golden Oldies’ come to Fiji and encourage our people”, says Fiji GOM Leader Caroline.

We have two special ‘Golden Golden Oldies’ returning, Jill and Avila. Between them they have contributed in previous missions by sewing at the Orphanage, teaching in schools, preparing craft workshops, and spoken in front of groups of people.

‘We’re so looking forward to meeting our friends in Fiji and seeing how the Golden Oldies projects have developed” says 5-timer Golden Oldie Avila.
