    Dear Friends, The peace of Christ be with you all. My name is Robert Powell. I am an implementation field worker for evangelism explosion Fiji. My story goes back several years ago when I first attended EE Training 2005. Being a first year student and having come from a background that represented a challenge, a complete change from the methodical way of doing things. Anyway it was in 2006 when I met Jeanne Hix here at the Kennedy Center in the west of Fiji. She cane as one of the teacher trainers. And I happen to be one of her students. Jeanne had a personality that made her sociable to students. She had qualities that made me work hard in regards to evangelism and its importance. After that in 2009 I carried on until I became a teacher trainer, it was then too that our Pastor was going to resign and in our meeting I felt the urge to further my calling as a Pastor for the Pacific Harbour Wesley Church. I had mentioned this to Jeanne and she was very supportive and the very words she used were "don't look back, set your hands on the ploughing presss forward. I took that to heart and followed where the Lord took me. Later I had to sit for a Pastoral examination as part of the requirements and passed. Jeanne became my prayer partner and coach in ministry. Jeanne financially supporter our ministry until the Lord called her home. I had other supporters however Jeanne was consistent as we know the importance of money in ministry and I praiseGod that I was encouraged to persevere through her giving and overall support. I must say that this was only possible through God's work in Jeanne's life. I now Pastor a church of 70 members and growing with EE Ministry at heart to save as many souls before I too retire and go home to the Lord. I hope and pray that his short story will encourage you to come on board to continue to support Jeanne's passion, mission and vision for lost souls. Heartfelt thanks and gratitude to you Ron, Zachary and Beth. Thank you so very much Jeanne. God's blessings be yours my friends. In His Service, Robert Powell
