Last Days in New Zealand

Last Days in New Zealand

Alas, they have come. We're sitting in the Christchurch airport awaiting our flight to Auckland and then on to Fiji. New Zealand has been good to us. The weather has been incredible. The scenery is always gorgeous. The team has gotten along well. Everyone has met with God. Could you really ask for more?

We now prepare to embark on our third leg of this adventure that has already proved to be life-changing: Fiji. Most Americans visit Fiji for vacation, but we won't see that side of the islands. Instead we'll be in the prisons, the slums, the schools, and the trenches with those who faithfully minister the love of Jesus to the people of Fiji every day. We only have 5 days to work, but our cameras will click away and our souls will love and encourage for all we're worth.

It won't be easy. The culture shock is intense. The heat and humidity will be oppressive. The food will be strange. The hours will be long. It will be good.

Please pray for us as we finish strong!
