Tonga here we come!
Very soon our small team from the New Zealand District Church of the Nazarene will depart for Tonga to serve with the Mango Tree Respite Centre. If you've followed this blog for any length of time at all, you've heard me mention this special ministry on various occasions. Mango Tree serves people living with disabilities in Tonga by providing education, resources, camaraderie and ultimately hope of new life in Jesus Christ.
The centre is located about an hour from Nuku-Alofa, the capital city of Tonga, located on the island of Tongatapu. I'm thrilled to be able to return to this place and these people that are dear to my heart.
Bring on the fresh coconut, warm temperatures and "blessed messy-ness"!
Please keep your eyes peeled to this blog for updates, photos and stories once we return.
Thank you for your prayers not only for our team, but for those with whom we will serve at the Mango Tree Centre, and for God to be lifted high in all things.
