Landing at Nadi in 28C was so cool, I mean hot! Welcomed with the musicians singing as we entered the airport was heart-warming. Suddenly to alarm when 15-year old Caleb was accosted by Customs with a mysterious package in his suitcase. On closer investigation it was discovered to be his bongo drums rapped in towels.
Bula! Welcome to ‘our home’

They didn’t expect someone to be bringing Fijian drum BACK to Fiji. Smiles all round, then leaving squashing into our shuttle to experience our first sights of Fiji
Urgent attention to acclimatising to the heat was immediate.

Tonight’s resort has a pool! Cool! Refreshing! Now we’re ready to prepare for the mission ahead of us.
Devotions started badly. In fact their singing was abysmal so we’re told several occasions by our Head Choir Master Mr Mike C. However we rehearsed fervently raised the bar to a standard that may get us through our Street singing tomorrow in the marketplace at Singatoka. He drove us hard and took no prisoners! Mr Andrew G. led our devotions ensuring us that we all have a place and something to offer on this mission.
Reflecting on this message, looking up at the starry sky on a balmy evening we all meandered off to bed with a sense of excitement in being here, along with panging feeling of nervous in trepidation about tomorrow. Now to face the rattly room fans, with snoring room buddies, and obviously we will awaken refreshed to what lies ahead!!!
