Fiji: Disciples Safe after Category 4 Hurricane

Credit: NASA Goddard MODIS Rapid Response Team   A few days before Christmas, a massive Category 4 Cyclone (Hurricane Evan) swept over the small island-nation of Fiji. Despite the wide spread damage from the storm, the 57 disciples comprising the International Church of Christ in Fiji are doing well...

   This was not the first major disaster the church witnessed last year. In March a severe flood washed through the area. The disciples helped out the community after the flood by serving a local school that had been damaged by mud.

   Besides physical safety, the church is also growing in number. The church grew by twenty members in 2012, making it the best year of growth in ten years! Amen.
