Fiji

Title: Fiji

Tier: 1

Type: country

British colonial greed left Fiji ethnically divided. The British imported Indians as indentured labourers from 1870 onward. Fijians lived as a minority in their own country at times. Indians worked hard to build new lives in Fiji, but they cannot own land. They face resentment and racial prejudice. Poor treatment by the British and Fijians, both considered Christian, discredited the gospel for most Indians. Pray for a spirit of repentance and reconciliation, and a society known for freedom and equality.
