It was two years ago this past May that Janice and I along with Jonathan Thompson, our Director of Operations, his wife Tricia, and SI Board member Wayne Crabtree, were hosted in Fiji by Ray and Laura Pittman. The purpose of the trip was to see if Fiji might be where we would begin a new ministry base. Ray and Laura came to SI in a remarkable way and they were coming to us with six years of experience in ministry in Fiji. Wayne had actually lived in Fiji for the first 14 years of his life as a son of full-time missionaries. After a busy week of meeting lots of people and dreaming of potential SI sites, we all felt the Lord gave us a “green light” and the process began.
In just two weeks Janice and I will be leading an outreach team to Fiji. The Lord is good and He is faithful. We look forward to working alongside Ray and Laura as they continue in the “birthing process” of this new ministry. Please pray for them and their team this summer. Jonathan and Tricia along with their three sons will be living in Fiji all summer helping the Pittmans. We value all of your prayers as we trust the Lord to “direct our paths.”
Blessings to all,
