BFMC is a non-profit 501-C3 organization.
In September of 2007 Pastor Sak and wife, Suki, Vuicakau opened the first Koroivonu EWE Preschool in the district of Tunuloa. Early education for children 3-5 years old was unheard of. To present day, EWE has graduated over two hundred children within a radius of ten miles from the village. Eighty five percent of these children continue to excel in school especially in English.
In 2012 a team from BFMC Hawaii had the privilege to be a part of the opening of Manukasi Preschool, an isolated village accessible only by boat. Early days and long hours are no longer an issue. Manukasi is enjoying their new facilities.
Pastor Sak and Suki are currently in Fiji and one of our goals for this summer will be to open two more preschools located in the villages of Navetau and Wailevu, both located on the northeastern side of Vanua Levu.
Phase 1- Bulldoze and clear out ten acres of property also making room for a 40' container to be shipped out from Hawaii in Nov of 2014. Set up temporary yet solid structures where we can start holding our church services. Construct and set-up water system, toilet facilities, kitchen facilities and sleeping quarters.
Phase 2 -Begin construction on Bible First Mission Church Fiji.
Phase 3- Discipleship & Vocational Training School. Here students will be trained spiritually while learning a trade. Students will then be sent out on missions.
These phases are used only as a guide we continue to rely totally upon the Lord for direction and instructions. May we allow Him to complete His perfect will in us.
In the far northeast corner of Vanua Levu, Fiji's northern island, lies the Tunuloa Peninsula and here we find the beautiful but remote village of Koroivonu. Home to approximately 1,000 people, this village may be accessed by a long three hour bus ride from the main port town of Savusavu. Farming and fishing continues to be an integral part of survival. Crops such as taro, cassava, sweet potatoes, coconuts, kava and small vegetable gardens can be found throughout the village. Though technology has arrived here, life in the village is quiet and un-hurried. Family time is priority; you may find the women baking homemade bread over an open fire, hear the pounding of the tapa, see the weaving of mats men playing a game of rugby, the hitting of a volleyball, children's laughter in the air, and the elders sitting and having a cup of tea. Koroivonu, where relationships and friendships are made. Here is where the vision begins.
