Headline: OCEANIA/FIJI ISLANDS – World Mission Sunday 2020: “I was evangelized by the poor”
Suva – “In my missionary life, I discoverd that I was evangelized by the poor”, said Sister Torika Wong, a citizen from Fiji, who served as a missionary in the Philippines in the Archdiocese of Davao, Mindanao, Philippines for 18 years. “For 18 years I worked at a pastoral level among the marginalized, prisoners and street children. It was a very demanding ministry. In difficult situations I often felt vulnerable, but I experienced the power of God in my life and I realized that I was really just an instrument in the hands of the Lord. God’s grace enlightened me and led me to a true conversion so that I could trust him and allow him to use me as an instrument of his love and compassion for humanity, especially for the marginalized”.
