Extra-Curricular - Missions Trips
In 1998, Condell Park Bible Church answered the call, along with several other churches, to assist a missionary to the Fiji Islands in the construction of a church building. As a part of the Church's contribution to the labour force, a team of older school students, along with some parents and teachers, gathered the funds necessary to travel to Fiji for two weeks of hard work and ministry. This proved to be an invaluable experience for everyone involved, particularly the students. Since then, the school has returned to Fiji several times to assist with the work that continues there in that same building that the first missions team helped to construct. For some students, these experiences have been life-changing in terms of helping to shape their goals for service and ministry. We endeavour to conduct a missions trip every three years, and we were blessed to take our most recent group in November, 2015. Please keep the mission field of Fiji and our School's future ministry opportunities in your prayers!
"I was keen to go on the Fiji missions team because I thought it would be both an adventure and a blessing for the people over there. Little did I know that the trip would stretch me mentally, physically and spiritually. The things I saw, the people I met and the opportunities I was given to minister challenged me to be grateful for everything I had been given, and to question what I was doing with my life. Thanks to the 2012 team, my burden for missions was born, and I am now pursuing a future in full-time ministry and missions." - Olivia Matthews, 2012 Fiji Missions Team
"The Fiji Missions Trip was definitely a life changing experience for me. We all went as a team to minister to the Fijian people but, in all honesty, these amazing people ministered to us in so many incredible ways. God has shown me so much during my trip over there. One of the highlights was visiting the Sigatoka Special School. After visiting the school several times, it was so evident to me that a career as a Music Therapist is my heart’s desire and my calling. I praise the Lord that I was given the opportunity to go on this incredible trip with an amazing team who were such a blessing to be around. All of us team members had a wonderful bonding experience and have all become closer as life friends." - Hannah-Marie Helo, 2015 Fiji Missions Team
