Makayla (Maki) – Half way through the week we felt God calling us to have a 3 day “kids club” tons of kids came as well as some of their parents. God really gave me a heart for those kids. I was really blessed by that ministry. The kids were so wonderful and I loved being with them. I really felt God move in the kids and their families. I love them! I also felt a huge freedom through dance. I have never felt closer to God then now!
Jonathan (Jonacani) – While we were in Dreketi one thing I found the most impacting was the relationships that we built. We made a lot of good friends through the Holy Cross church and through ministry, they blessed me a ton as we ministered to them.
Mambo (Maikeli) - Dreketi was the best time so far. I really like the people there. One of them was John, who is a pastor from the church. Kid’s ministry was also really funny. I enjoyed the times we had. Door-to-door was my best experience so far, I really enjoyed talking with the Indian people.
Shea (Selena) – Let me just start off by saying that I’m in love with Dreketi…’twas an amazing week. One thing that impacted me was talking to an Indo-Fijian about God and Christianity. He came up to me and had many questions. Normally I would have gotten overwhelmed because I wouldn’t know what to say- I’m not always the best at conveying what I mean! But I got to see the lecture side of DTS at work. Information that I had learned the last few months came to mind and I was able to share with this man about lots of things! It was really neat. Please pray for him as he continues searching!
Cheyenne (Saini) – I knew coming to Dreketi that it was going to be a very transforming week. When we first arrived I did not have the greatest attitude and I wondered how I would survive sleeping in a tent, on the ground for 10 days. However, God gave me a piece of His heart for Dreketi and I immediately fell in love with the village. It was in Dreketi where God really solidified who I have become since DTS. The people and the children were a huge blessing to me! I love Dreketi!
Cynthia (Senijiale) – This week I was really impacted by each of our team members. They have truly been putting into practice the things they have learned throughout lecture phase, letting go of the past and now walking in their true identities in Christ. Personally, I have treasured each of the new friendships than have been developed here in Fiji. Spending time in this wonderful culture with relationship based people, has changed me forever.
