Pacific Islands Leaders Meetings – Port Vila, Vanuatu

  The Word of God is clear that the Gospel will be preached in all nations before the second coming of Christ in the clouds of heaven. It is of interest that the work of God in the island regions gets a special mention in Isaiah. 42:10-12  “Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants…

There were a lot of camp-outs and youth activities carried out.  But slowly over the years these young people grew up and either moved away or became…

I know that this money could be spent here, locally… but while reading the book “Faith  I Live By” I came across THE answer. “Christ gave His disciples their commission. He…
