Four new churches start in Fiji!

It all started when Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes filled with gifts were distributed to the children on the island. Soon afterwards, with their parents’ permission, many of the kids who received a shoebox enrolled in The Greatest Journey.

“God has clearly shown me that there is no, ‘No’ in planting a church anywhere on earth for me when using The Greatest Journey."

Pastor Waisea said, “God has clearly shown me that there is no, ‘No’ in planting a church anywhere on earth for me when using The Greatest Journey.”

The Greatest Journey is a discipleship program that introduces kids to salvation through faith in Christ, helps them understand what a relationship with Christ is all about and encourages them to share their faith.

After each class, the children went home and shared with their parents the Bible stories they were learning. Many of the parents became curious and started coming to The Greatest Journey classes to observe.

As a result, hundreds of children and many parents have come to faith in Christ, and four new churches have been started.

Samaritan’s Purse recently funded the building of a church in a village near Labasa for one of the new congregations and hopes to fund the construction of churches for the other three.

Most of the new believers are Fijian Indians from a range of religious backgrounds. Until the churches have been built, meetings are being held in people’s homes and temporary shelters.

Waisea, the Fijian pastor responsible for the rollout of The Greatest Journey on Vanua Levu, said; “God has clearly shown me that there is no, ‘No’ in planting a church anywhere on earth for me when using The Greatest Journey. And I personally think that I can plant at least another five churches in this region.”
