Remember Tonga… Manatua a Tonga

Dear Friends in Christ,

I bring to you at this time an opportunity from within one of our churches in the south. For some time now a Discipleship training School has been run from a base in Riversdale Presbyterian Church in Southland. This school is run through a sister organisation called Global Disciples and the one in Riversdale has focused on helping people to draw closer to Christ and to share the Gospel in both New Zealand and Tonga. The schools usually involve some teaching time in Riversdale (11days) and then three weeks working in Tonga.

The next school begins in mid-June and will go to mid-July and will focus on the rebuilding effort in Tongatapu. The DTS base in Tonga has suffered significant losses but these pale into comparison with those the people of this small Island nation. At this stage a team member is assessing how best a team can be used and this information will be used to guide the team when they enter the country.

Usually the cost of the DTS is $2650 which includes flights and all meals. This may have to be changed if flights become more expensive.

Team leaders John and Heather Gullick are looking for people who can be a part of the DTS and come to Tonga to assist with the clean-up. Could this be you?

Please contact the team if you are interested or have questions.

Contact numbers and email are…


Yours in Christ,

Richard D
