Moving Forward in UCB Fiji

Moving Forward in UCB Fiji

This is a very encouraging testimony from Tomu who is our Station manager in Fiji, about how things are changing in Fiji and how he has been meeting with some key decision-makers, please continue to keep this in prayer for Tomu and the team in Fiji as they look to establish a local frequency.

I was called in yesterday to meet with the Minister for Communication, Mr. Manoa Kamikamica. He was quite positive about supporting us and seeing the project through. I took the tablet given by Grant which had preloaded life fm programs. The Minister was quite impressed that we had all these ready and operational.

He’s asked that we give them 1 week to follow it up with their team, one of whom was present yesterday at the meeting. The meeting was set up as a series of outcomes and push to get the license and radio frequency available to us by the government. I had been told that the last radio license given out to any organization commercial or private was more than 10 years ago. So getting a license now is going to be a great breakthrough and achievement given the changes our nation is going through.

An outcome of the meeting with the Minister, he assured me that they are willing to bypass this system in order to speed up the process. And he’s asked to be given at least 1 week to get all these things sorted.

How to develop patience (4)

‘But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,’ Galatians  5:22 NLT You will notice that in listing the fruit of the Spirit, patience comes right after peace. Why? Because when you have peace in your heart, practically nothing can cause you to feel impatient. But these qualities are the fruit of the Spirit, not the...

How to develop patience (3)

‘A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.’ Proverbs 1 7:22 ESV Here are two more things you need to do in order to develop patience: 1) Develop a sense of humour. The Bible says, ‘A tranquil heart is life to the body’ (Proverbs 14:30 NASB). Scientific studies reveal that people who laugh, live longer. Humour is a stress dissolver. It’s an antidote to...

How to develop patience (2)

‘Whoever is patient has great understanding.’ Proverbs 1 4:29 NIV Patience begins by changing the way you view something. When you’re impatient, you have a narrow perspective. All you see is yourself: your needs, goals, schedule, desires, and the way people are messing up your life. Basically, the root of impatience is selfishness. Try to see things from the other person’s point of view. If you...

How to develop patience (1)

‘One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty.’ Proverbs 1 6:32 NASB The Bible says that when you pray, God can answer instantly. But nowhere in the Bible are you promised instant patience. Patience is a quality of character, and character is built over a lifetime of walking with God through good times and bad. Here is how God develops patience in us: 1) Interruptions. You sit down to eat...

The Huddle

‘I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you.’ 1 Corinthians  1:10 ESV To lead your family effectively, you need to learn how to huddle regularly. The 'huddle' is where a team: 1) sets its goals; 2) discusses the division of responsibilities; 3) tackles the issues that determine whether it wins or...

How love is expressed

‘Serve one another humbly in love.’ Galatians  5:13 NIV Love is mostly something you do instead of something you feel. Paul writes, ‘You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love’ (Galatians 5:13 NIV). So how are you supposed to express your love? According to one author, as follows: ‘A son drives...

Change your concept of God

‘He will rejoice over you with gladness.’ Zephaniah  3:17 NKJV What’s your concept of God? When you pray, ‘Our Father,’ what do you see? Do you see a parent who abandoned you, abused you, or abdicated their responsibility to you? Do you think of an angry father who accused but never affirmed you; in other words, a God waiting to zap you each time you do wrong? If so, you need to change your...

Intimacy vs. activity

‘"But one thing is necessary. Mary has made the right choice, and it will not be taken away from her."’ Luke 1 0:42 CSB When Jesus visited the home of Mary and Martha, their individual responses to Him were very different. Martha’s focus was on the meal. Her aim was to please Jesus. But she made a common mistake; her work became more important than her Lord. What began as a serving experience...

You are Christ’s ambassador (3)

‘Our citizenship is in heaven.’ Philippians  3:20 NIV Let’s recap. As an ambassador, you must have the following qualifications and characteristics: 1) Be a citizen of the country you represent. ‘... our citizenship is in heaven.’ 2) Your character and conduct must reflect the highest values of your country. ‘... that our God may make you worthy of his calling ...’ (2 Thessalonians 1:11 NIV). 3)...

You are Christ’s ambassador (2)

‘Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.’ Ephesians  6:10 NIV In 2012 our ideas about being an ambassador were radically altered when the U.S. ambassador to Libya was murdered by terrorists. It takes a special person to be an ambassador in a combat zone. And that’s what you are in! Paul writes: ‘Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of...
