Volunteers Forming Team to Fiji

April 03, 2013

Fiji-bound volunteers are hosting an information program on the mission projects Fiji on Saturday, April 13, 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Centennial United Methodist Church in Sacramento. The program, open to all with an interest in Fiji, is an introduction of the volunteer projects in Fiji, with a focus on the Navuso Farm, and the first of four meetings this team will have before they travel to Fiji, August 20-31. Fijian dishes will be served for lunch.   

This program will be the first information meeting in a series, to promote the Fiji mission project opportunities for volunteers to participate. The Navuso Farm is a key part of the Fiji Methodist Church's ministry and is the project the California-Nevada Conference agreed to support. In addition to this introduction to Fiji, the program includes information about specific projects for this year, the itinerary for the team travel to the Navuso Farm, and recruiting volunteers to be directly or indirectly part of the team. 
The team for the August trip is a conference-wide team and anyone can participate in this and other projects. Applications for the August trip will be accepted for review starting at this meeting. Other teams to Fiji are forming now too, and those opportunities will be presented as well. 
Centennial UMC is located at 5401 Freeport Blvd., Sacramento, CA, 95822.
