Comforting words from the mission team leader

Received email from David Clark about the team going to Fiji, the itinerary for the group, and his hopes and prayers for God’s work through us and in the hearts of the people we will be ministering to.
The general plan is:
Arrive Nadi Saturday morning and go to the Training Center for a couple hours.
Back to the airport and fly to Labasa.
Go to the Market for food supplies and then to Naduri Village arriving early Saturday evening.
Sunday - Worship, Team Time and Final Training Plans.
Monday - Friday Teaching 8:30 - 2:30, OJT 2:30 - 4:00ish, Kids EE Gospel 5-6 pm
Saturday Morning - Boat/Island Team Time.
Saturday Afternoon - Team Departs Naduri and splits up for a variety of return plans.
AZ folks fly Labasa to Nadi, Others something different.
I copied and pasted parts of his email into this blog. I hope you enjoy his words, the rest are his:
This morning I read, "For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. -- 2 Corinthians 5:14,15 (NIV)
As Ambassadors of His message we answer His call to go to Fiji this July. We go to serve Him, His Church, and people made in His image. We go with a purpose, to disciple people in Personal Evangelism using tools from EE. At the same time we are humble enough to submit to His will for us during our trip, whatever that may be. Ultimately we pray that the Holy Spirit will produce Fruit in and through us, and that this fruit will continue to multiply in others after we leave, until Christ's return.
As brothers and sisters in Christ we come together from AZ, CO, CA, FL and all over Fiji to form a single unified EE Missions Team. I am looking forward to serving alongside each of you. We will all get the chance to know each other better as we work and live together in Naduri.
I am confident as we go with His Grace and Love in our hearts we will have the Time of our Lives!
