From the Ends of the Earth: C4I Fiji

Raphael Jordan - 28 October 2021

In the recent months between July to September, Christians for Israel (C4I) Fiji has been excited to explore opportunities that have opened up during this pandemic. In the distribution of our bi-monthly newspaper, Israel & Christians Today, it has become a bridge to meet new Christians who have come to support Israel.

Our fortnightly zoom prayer meetings see the fluctuation of numbers of attendants due to varying reasons. C4I Fiji forges ahead with our zoom prayer meetings regardless because we recognise the need to remain consistent and united in our prayers for Israel. We take comfort in the word of God, for it states in scripture (Matt 18:20), “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I with them”.

An ongoing activity that has increased momentum is the promotion and distribution of C4I Fiji merchandise creating awareness about Israel, such as caps, face masks, t-shirts, embroidered polo shirts, bumper stickers, all tagged with Magen David, Israel table flags and car flags.

We also contributed to the C4I International initiative to work with the International Coalition for Israel and the European Coalition for Israel and be part of the Worldwide Celebration for Israel Marathon to wish the Jewish State a Happy New Year (Rosh Hashanah; 5th September 2021). A 15-minute video was compiled and made up of Fijian individuals and families who expressed their blessings to Israel and her people for the above project for ‘God Loves Israel’ (Deuteronomy 7:8; Isaiah 43:4).

C4I Fiji was also blessed to speak to the Global Network Discipleship (GND). Ana and I were really encouraged to talk to young adults about Israel for God’s everlasting covenants with Israel, God will fulfil for Israel (Jeremiah 32:37-41) and the need to deny oneself to follow Christ.

The audience was mainly from Fiji and across the South Pacific Islands and Alaska. It was an excellent opportunity to encourage young people to support and stand with Israel in this time, where both anti-Semitism and Replacement Theology are on the rise. The feedback we got from this meeting was positively overwhelming. We learnt that the idea to form GND came to the founders when they were visiting Jerusalem.
