My story—Rodney Timothy

I am from the north of New Georgia Island in the western province of Solomon Islands. I am studying theology at Fulton College. My main interest in theology is to know more about God to help me understand Him so that I can effectively witness to my people in the Solomons. 

I have worked for 22 years as a pastor but have never had the opportunity to study. It’s a challenge to come to Fulton College and learn many things I’ve never learnt, like computers, academic writing and English. In the Solomons everything was in Pidgin. I came here with my wife and daughter. The Solomon Islands Mission helped to sponsor me. I struggled in my first year but have been given another chance. I love learning about Revelation and Daniel.

When I was small I was interested in listening to the pastor. I thought it was good work to share the good news. Then at high school I met Pastor Errol Wright, who encouraged me to join the ministerial league and then I attended Sonoma College for three years. 

We are in the last days and this is a very important message. Here at Fulton I have been taught how to run seminars. We ran an outreach at Korovo last year, which I really enjoyed. God is blessing me as I learn more about Him.as told to Jarrod Stackelroth
