I would like to share with you a more detailed report of what we witnessed the Lord doing during a recent trip to Fiji.
The Team: In mid-July, I traveled to Fiji with a small team of fellow five-fold leaders for a second annual event designed to train and equip Fijian leaders in the foundations of five-fold supernatural ministry. With me were anointed leaders representing 4 of the 5 office gifts: Keith Ferrante (prophet), Joel Butz (teacher), Gary and Karissa Hopkins (pastors), and myself, David Crone (apostle). Once in
Invasion Leadership Conference: I had a sense before departing from California that there was
We have done this type of event before, but this year was uniquely effective. During one session, we separated the men and women, and the women in attendance gave overwhelmingly positive feedback about the session led by Karissa Hopkins. This was particularly significant because female leadership is not yet as accepted in Fijian culture. Meanwhile, Gary, Keith, Joel, Caleb, and
One of the attendees to the leadership conference was a pastor from the Solomon Islands. He was so impacted by the conference and connected with our team so well that we have plans to help him start a supernatural school in his nation next year.

Several of the students traveled by bus from as far as 3 hours away every week for this school. This actually led to an amazing testimony: one student who lives on the far side of the island firmly believed that he was supposed to make the trip to attend the school, despite not having enough money for the bus fare. Putting his faith in action, he took what money he did have—the Fijian equivalent of a $5 bill, not enough to get all the way across the island—in his pocket and headed to the bus station, trusting that God would take care of the rest somehow. When he arrived at the bus station, he reached
Sounds of The Nations: The following week, Sounds of the Nations held a worship conference with attendees from all over the big island. I kicked off the conference speaking on the priority of presence and identity. Roma Waterman, Director of Sounds of the Nations Australia, was one of the featured speakers along with Fiji Directors Iva and Sam. It was great to see what a good turnout this worship conference drew, especially since the Fiji base of Sounds of the Nations was launched only one year ago.
Thank you for continuing to be part of this adventure and partnership with Fiji. It is truly amazing to see the love of God at work in that beautiful nation. You are making an eternal difference. I love being on this journey with you.
