A Brief review of Ministry in Vila

A few weeks before our wedding, Judith invited me to a Scripture Union camp for kids. It was to be her last camp before moving over to campus ministry. We had an awesome time with the kids. I’ve found that one of the joys of living and working in a small place like Port Vila is the opportunity to work with and alongside other ministries. It’s a blessing to rub shoulders with people serving under different umbrella organisations; Scripture Union, Youth with a Mission (YWAM), Christian fellowship, Bible translators and other missionaries. During my short time there God has reminded me of how he uses us all in different ways but with the same objective, to help fulfill the Great Commission – to make disciples of all nations. I can honestly say that one of the highlights for me was simply “guys’ fellowship”; where we’d meet on a Tuesday night, read a passage of scripture and just break-off into talking about the “big questions” in life… in BISLAMA! [laughs] God is so good. I feel that God has been teaching me to be more practical with my faith and not to limit ministry to students on university campuses but to be open to opportunities that present themselves everyday. Not by going out on the streets and giving out tracts but by learning to love people more and being sensitive to their circumstances. More than that; offering to lend a hand.
