Unity preparing the way for revival in Fiji

While ministering to churches and villages in Fiji last month, Rhema Family Church Pastor David Chandler discovered a rising tide of unity.

“Over the last three years I have been privileged to travel to the Fiji Islands to minister the gospel in a Faith-based bible school and in many Fijian churches,” said Ps. David. “My trip this year was different. While I still had the joy of preaching in various Fijian churches, this year I travelled and ministered in villages, in homes, on the streets and in the marketplace.”

During his time in Fiji, David said many gave their lives to Christ, some rededicated their lives to Jesus, were filled with the Holy Spirit and many were healed as the Word of God was preached.

“During an eight-day stay on the small island of Buliya, the villagers came to my little house to have hands laid on them to receive healing,” he said. “And as I ministered in meetings, the gifts of the Holy Spirit were in operation in peoples’ lives. It was so good to see people being set free.”

Rhema Family Church supports eight Fijian young people through educational sponsorship.

“A highlight of this trip was visiting these young people and their families and to witness their joy as gifts from their sponsors were distributed.”

According to David, one of the most exciting aspects of the trip was to share with churches about the relational unity between pastors in Toowoomba.

“As I shared how we gather together as the Body of Christ and not as a particular denomination for weekly prayer and fellowship at CLN, the pastors united together and agreed to come together weekly for prayer themselves.”

“Unity is essential for revival! And from what I saw God do during my time, I believe Fiji is ripe for revival.”

David said he was thankful for the support of the faithful Rhema Family Church partners who believe in this mission and vision.

“Whether the support came in the form of prayer, encouragement or finances, they were an incredible and essential part of getting the gospel to Fiji.”
