Global Mission Partners
His name is David Reddy and he is in ministry at the Lautoka and Vitogo Community Churches of Christ in Fiji. Those who attend the Lautoka Church experience a service in Hindi language and live in the nearby suburban environment of Lautoka. About 15 minutes away is a small sugar cane cutter’s settlement called Vitogo. These settlements are primarily Indo-Fijian and reflect the history of these communities as migrant sugar cane labourers. The members of this church do not have cars so David picks them up in his utility and brings them together for Sunday worship.
David is married to Christie and they have a daughter, Destiny, and a son, Joy. Ministry is something they share as a family and represents a deep trusting in God for all they need.
