Let There Be Life – Vanuatu
The Least and the Last on Earth are the First and the Foremost in God’s Vision! Many tribal villages of the South Pacific islands of Vanuatu have gone unnoticed by most of the world. Yet by their own admission, these people long to be noticed; they long to learn and have better opportunities; they long to have medical and dental care to resolve their pain and sickness; and they long for spiritual teaching that will bring hope and freedom to their families and communities. You can give life! If you work in the medical profession, you can improve life. If you are practiced at construction, you can build life. If you can communicate the love of Jesus, you can offer life. If you can just sit with one of these islanders, smile, and say, “I came all this way because you are worth it,” then you can plant the seeds of life. Let there be LIFE in VANUATU!

While this description paints a bleak picture, one can also find much beauty in the Ni-Vanuatu! Many uplifting cultural traditions still abound – some traditions and values that would benefit the western traditions. They are a soft spoken, extremely polite people. They go out of their way to honor guests. Their communities are close-knit. They have many colorful dances, songs, stories, and food that reveal a people uniquely sculptured by the Creator. These precious people, struggling for hope and change, are dearly loved by Jesus, and are worth investing our lives and resources for.
we are many unique families loving and serving the same Savior – Jesus Christ. Via the Bishop Ministerial Association and other unifying relationships, we have mutually supported many community outreaches and family gatherings to share the love of our God. By mutually committing to this outreach endeavor, we not only hope to draw closer as a Christian community, but to pool our resources to make a dramatic difference in the world in a way we could never do alone.
