Journey of Faith
Hello! My name is Raga Vali; 40 and single. I’m from Papua New Guinea. We call it a “Land of the unexpected.” Currently, I live in my home country and serve in my local church. My journey of faith brought me to the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here).
I have five siblings – four boys and a sister -and I am the third in my family. My eldest brother is a pastor doing a full-time ministry with his lovely wife. So, they are my role models.
My Work Life
I worked for over 19 years to earn my living. Then, on July 15, 2020, I decided to quit my job as an Executive Assistant. I used to be a 50/50 Christian from my teenage days until 2018. That is when I began to hear God’s voice telling me, “Raga, you have a purpose, and that is to build Kingdom Business.” So, I began to seek God’s face more and search for truths. However, the voice kept telling me, “Raga, you have a purpose, and that is to build Kingdom Business.” The voice also said, “Raga, you are too comfortable where you are. You need to trust me and take a leap of faith to chase after your real calling.” I knew it was God’s voice, so I took a leap of faith and left my job to start a new journey called “Faith.”
Leap of Faith
After quitting my job, I decided to go home to my village to stay for a while. A voice whispered during my stay, “Take care of your old grandmother.” So, with faith, I began to care for my grandmother (90+years old). I fed her every morning, lunchtime, and dinner. I washed her, cleaned for her, and used all my toiletries to make her feel good and look good. People that walked past her house complimented her that she looked brand new. She expressed her heartfelt gratitude to me (the words had weight – It was Faith).
I took care of her for five months. Then I moved back to the city to prepare my documents for my final entitlements. In July 2021, my grandmother was promoted to Glory. That same day, I got my funds credited to my account, and I also arranged to purchase a 15 seater bus. After returning from my grandmother’s burial, I bought the bus and called it “Mustard Seed” with the slogan: “Faith mogo.” Mogo is in my mother tongue language and translates as “Faith Only.” The bus currently operates as a public motor vehicle and provides services that glorify God’s Name! God is Good!
My Time in My Local Church
I rededicated my life to Christ on November 21, 2021. Now, I am always available 100% to do anything that involves God’s Kingdom. I have been given roles to take care of in my local church. I love my new life and regret those years that I didn’t have time for church activities due to work demands. But now, I am grateful that I can surrender my all to Jesus to use me as His vessel. He is in control of my life and the center of my life. With my daily Bible reading, daily personal prayer life, and being obedient to God’s Word, I see and feel the power of the Holy Spirit working in my life. All Glory goes back to God!
Journey of Faith: God’s Calling
I hear God telling me that I am to do full-time ministry. So, it has been my daily prayer, asking God to teach me how to pray and preach and proclaim His Word to the people. I also ask Him to give me wisdom, boldness, courage, and the power of the Holy Spirit flowing through me.
He heard my prayers and led me to Christian Leaders Institute for free Online Courses. I don’t know how I found it on the Internet, but I did and know it is God who led me to this school. I’m so thankful because CLI, CLC, and CLA have provided everything I need. I pray that I will complete the online lessons given, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, I will learn as much as possible to know more about God!
I have found my true purpose, and it’s a Blessed Life.
