Grace International has been having a good year and the various ministries including Grace Fijian (under the leadership of Pastor Eroni and Twila Waqasokolala) have ministered to many people out of a heart of love for Jesus and compassion for people.

We have recently enjoyed some special weekends along with our regular services that have been vibrant and life changing. In September we had Ps Sharon Tan and her team from Aussie and Thailand and they ministered a powerful Women’s Seminar on the Saturday called ‘Living with Purpose’ and took the Sunday morning service which also brought real blessing to everyone’s lives.

In early October about 28 of our men and youths attended ‘Promise Keepers’ which was and is always of tremendous value in helping our men in their Christian lives. It inspires, empowers and changes them to become better husbands, fathers and Christians.

Then we had our own ‘Increase’ Conference with Ps Michael Murphy and Ps Ron and Anna Henry from Aussie. Ps Ron was not so well but ministered a powerful word in the final Sunday ‘International Night’ which always starts with an Umu / Hangi and then a service with worship and then some Gospel cultural items and a short message. The weekend went very well with many lives touched afresh by God through powerful messages, items and worship and loving hospitality.

 On the Monday we had another HIM Network day with Pastors and Leaders with tremendous input from Ps Michael Murphy with fresh insights and practical applications to help each one of us in our lives and ministries.

 Coming up we have a Powerhouse Youth team going to Fiji to help with our HIM Churches Youth Conference there. Then on the 14th DECEMBER WE HAVE WATER BAPTISMS, PICNIC AND THE ANNUAL ‘OLD WISE ONES VS THE YOUNG STRONG ONES’ SOCCER GAME – HILARIOUS, WELL CONTESTED BUT STILL THE ‘OLD WISE ONES’ CONTINUE TO TAKE THIS ONE OUT EACH YEAR!! THE TIDE IS IN AND PEOPLE WILL BE OBEYING JESUS AND HAVING A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF THEIR CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION LAID AS THEY FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE IN GOING THROUGH THE WATERS OF BAPTISM

 Have a great remaining 2 months of 2014 and may each of you start with fresh vision and passion as you go into 2015.

 Love and Blessings
