Areas of Ministry – We will be serving at Homes of Hope in a rain forest just outside of Suva. Homes of Hope is an amazing ministry that works with young moms (mostly aged 15-19 years old) and their children. Many of them have been rescued out of the sex trade industry or domestic abuse. To see more about this amazing ministry, you can visit http://www.hopefiji.org/.

We will also do some more leadership training with the staff there.
