GOSPEL! By Scot & Katie Daku
After walking down the halls of the BIMI Home Office, a young missionary sits in
a Candidate School class. The images of the various people groups whose pictures
hang on the walls continue to resonate in his mind. It is for these individual souls
for whom Christ died that we surrender our lives to preach the Gospel—those who
are lost and blind and those who are looking for hope.

One such person is Litia, known to most people as Nana.

She grew up Methodist and eventually married a Catholic
man. She was born on the small island of Rabi in Fiji with
a population of only 2,000 people. Litia was sprinkled as
a baby as so many other island people have been.

She told me, “I was an average Catholic woman who
tried to observe and take part in the rituals of the church.

I always believed that I would be going to purgatory
if I was not a good Catholic following the rules of the
church.” Scot with Litia
In July 2017, she was invited to an evangelistic meeting
with Dr. W. L. Smith where she heard the Gospel for the
first time. After receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as her
personal Savior, she said, “My life changed instantly.”
Sometime after her salvation, Litia got a call from some of the ladies at the Catholic
church. They asked, “What have we done to offend you? Why have you stopped
coming to church?” With joy in her heart, Litia replied, “You have not offended
me; I have found the truth and if you come to my house, I will tell you all about it.”
What a joy and blessing to see the change Jesus made in the life of a sinner! Litia
now has a peace . . . which passeth all understanding (Philippians 4:7). W
