Helping isolated pastors in the Pacific

The importance of Biblical teaching for remote areas

Vanuatu is an island country located in the southern Pacific Ocean approximately 1,090 miles east of northern Australia. It is an archipelago of made up of 83 small islands of which around 65 are inhabited. Its closest neighbours are New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, Fiji, and Tuvalu. Vanuatu has three official languages: Bislama, English and French. 

Pastor Situ is a pastor from one of the more remote areas of Vanuatu. He recently wrote to us to describe his ministry, and to thank the Trust and our supporters for the books he receives as part of our regular mailings. His words demonstrate how important it is that we continue to reach out to those pastors in isolated locations. 

“I praise God and am thankful to the Lord for allowing me to know this ministry. It has been a great blessing to me as I am a pastor living on an isolated island. No one is close by to help, so your assistance in this way encourages me in my ministry and helps me to gain Biblical knowledge so I can teach and preach to the church members. And I also received good topics in the books so I can study them to answer some of the questions I face. 

Because of the good study materials church members are being helped and taught; so much so that one of the youth is now willing to go to another island in the South Pacific as a missionary. This is the first time that the church has decided to send a young man to an island (Solomon Island). This is because of the help of the materials sent to us.”
