Here’s another story about a very special couple that we’ve come to know and love, whom God has used tremendously to help the Fiji Deaf Ministry. We met because of an overbooked hotel.
Sam and Christine Tawake-Bachofner run a beautiful resort on the island of Beqa (pronounced Ben-ga), in the village of Lawaki. After working in Fiji for some time, Jim and I felt the need to get away for a day or two. We looked online, and enquired about a place on the nearby island of Beqa. Unfortunately, or rather fortunately as it turned out, that place was fully booked and could not take us. The manager suggested we try Lawaki Beach House, a small resort a little further along the coast on the island. It was there that we met Sam and Christine.
them our contact. Matt and Marita not only brought Sailosi to GSD, but paid to sponsor him as well. This year, Marica and Sailosi are beginning their 5th year at GSD. They both love school, and now have a wonderful deaf community of friends here.
God used a vacation get away to bring us two young deaf students and an extremely talented and hard working teacher. In addition, we have made two wonderful friends who have been a big support to the Fiji Deaf Ministry!!
Yes, Lawaki is a very beautiful and special place! Thank you Sam and Christine!
