Many kids in Fiji are enrolling in The Greatest Journey.

Many kids in Fiji are enrolling in The Greatest Journey.

In an open-air classroom under a mango tree outside the town of Tavua, a group of children gather to learn about Jesus.

In February 2015, Pastor Rohit Krishna started the classes with a group of almost 50 boys and girls who had received a shoebox gift about a month earlier and now wanted to do The Greatest Journey.

He was delighted that a new generation of children was learning about Jesus.

“I tried to reach [them] before but I didn’t know how,” he said. “Operation Christmas Child has shown me how to minister to children.”

In another area of Fiji, more than 240 km north of Tavua on a red dirt hill, 25 kids are gathered on a large reed mat under a mango tree with Pastor Waisea. They are children who received Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and now want to do The Greatest Journey.

Pastor Waisea, the National Coordinator for The Greatest Journey in Fiji, is excited that kids in Fiji who have received shoeboxes are now enrolling in The Greatest Journey and learning about Christ. He is eager to see how the discipleship program will improve his nation for future generations.
