Day 1 in Fiji

With 7 different flights among our team and one bus route, we all made it without any delays or hang-ups! Praise the Lord for the favor and grace He had on getting all 22 of us here safely and on-time! We arrived in Nadi (pronounced Nan-dee) around 5:00 AM Fiji time, which is actually 17 hours ahead of Central time. We loaded vans and drove to a church plant within the city, and we were treated with an amazing breakfast including rolls filled with whipped cream, fresh bread, juice, coffee, papaya, and bananas. We heard the story of how a transformed village actually gave back some land in the city, so that the church could use it. A mountain right outside the door was “Sleeping Giant,” which overlooked Nadi. We then traveled east for about 5 hours on the southern border across the beautiful Fijian countryside towards Nausori. We had one stop at a roadside store full of Fijian goods, and made it to the Healing the Land Base without a problem. We were welcomed with a nice lunch, and then we spent the afternoon relaxing and hanging out with the Healing the Land Team. Our night concluded with a dinner in the main meeting room, followed by a powerful time of worship! When we began worshiping together with the team here it felt like an explosion! The director of the Healing the Land team, Savenacca, then welcomed us and shared about the ministry. What an amazing first day!
