His Work Our Hands

Mission Bound

  with Joel & Terri


SMILES for the Pacific -  A new relationship is forming between Ruel Foundation (Fiji) and SMILES for the Pacific! This is an exciting step! SMILES has been serving the community of Lautoka, Fiji annually for five years and, Lord willing, RFF will be working closely with SMILES and the Ministry of Health to manage their annual dental outreach! 


Lord willing, Bradley Shinabarger​ has plans to join Joel and Terri in the beginning of 2020. His mission will be to teach small engine repair to the impoverished in a technical center operated by the College of Theology & Evangelism Fiji. Brad has 51 years of experience that will bless young men and women. This opportunity will empower those from areas of poverty and help them to earn better livings to bring back to their villages. Teaching one can change the lives of so many!

Looking Forward


Water Project - The Fiji island of Qamea has been plagued with water problems for a long time. The Shafer's have been asked to organize, implement and follow through with a water project within one of the villages on Qamea. To accomplish, there are plans to partner with the Fiji Department of Health and the non-government agency Give Clean Water to bring access to clean water.
