On August 21, Service, Justice, and Missions Coordinator Fabio Maia and ten Pacific Union College students left for an eighteen-day evangelism mission in Fiji with ShareHim and Quiet Hour Ministries. Each student will be placed in a specific community where they will present the story of Christ’s love and sacrifice each evening. Many of the students are active in the college’s praise and worship teams and brought their instruments so they can share God’s love through music.
Before the group departed, the students gathered in President Heather J. Knight’s office for a special blessing prayer led by Pastor Mark Witas, the lead pastor of the PUC Church. Pastor Witas included special prayer that God lead the group in doing good in His name. The group also bonded by sharing a meal together before heading to the airport for their flight to Fiji.
For many PUC students, summer is the perfect opportunity to devote time to ministry and service. While some students work at summer camps or serve as literature evangelists, other groups get the experience of a lifetime by sharing the gospel and serving local communities in places around the world. The PUC community is invited to join in prayer for the team travelling to Fiji as well as other student groups currently on short-term mission trips to Nicaragua and Brazil.
