Fiji

 A new Community is in the process of being established in Fiji!  It's called the Nadi Lautoka Emmaus Community.

 One set of Walks was held in Nadi in 2008, hosted by Sydney Community;
Another set was held in May 2011, hosted by Brisbane South Community.

There are now well over 100 Emmaus Community members living in Fiji who over the past six years have attended either these Walks or Walks held in Australia.  A Steering Committee of Fijian members has been established and has started to take some responsibility for the ministry there, and it is expected that a Board of Directors will be formally established soon.
