The Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma, and students of Davuilevu Theological College in Nausori will soon benefit from the expertise of world renowned missionaries, the Reverend Wesley Neal and his wife Rev Doctor Jerusha Neal.

They are missionaries from the General Board of Global Ministries, the global mission agency of The United Methodist Church, based in the United States.

The couple is based at the college in Davuilevu.

Rev Wesley will serve as lecturer in missiology, the area of practical theology that investigates the mandate, message, and mission of the Christian church, especially the nature of missionary work.

His wife, Rev Dr Neal, is a professor of theology, equipping new pastors and affirming women in their call.

She said it was God’s call for them to teach in Fiji.

“We knew we had a call from God to be part of a theological education around the world and we have been waiting through the global ministries for an invitation from a partner church,” Rev Dr Neal said.

“In January, we found out that there was an invitation from Fiji that matched our need and our specialties, so we were very delighted.

“We have been invited to come for three years to be lecturers and professors at Davuilevu Theological College. This is the first time for us to live in Fiji and we are very excited. There’s so much learning to do when you move to a new country. Everything is just a little bit different but we’re adjusting.”

She said their children would attend Dilkusha Boys School and Dilkusha Girls School.

The newly-appointed general secretary of the Methodist Church in Fiji, Reverend Dr Epineri Vakadewavosa said Fiji was fortunate to have the couple.

“Davuilevu Theological College is blessed to have them because they have experience and will make positive changes,” Rev Dr Vakadewavosa said.

“This is a new step and they will open doors between Fiji and other countries.”
