MMM Fiji - Serving Those Who Serve

Mobile Mission Maintenance was the original name of MMM, with MMM Fiji projects happening since 1996. Our Christian building services can assist in the building, renovating, maintaining and hurricane relief of any property used in Christian activity and service. We are proud to offer our labour completely free of charge through the help of truly passionate volunteers.

Building... Empowering People

We coordinate teams to work on Christian Ministries within the Fiji Islands, usually on a short term basis of around two weeks. This is arranged in conjunction with the MMM New Zealand office. If you are looking for a practical way to serve God and help the people of Fiji, then you can do exactly that through MMM Fiji. Check out our projects page for upcoming opportunities.

Meet the Hogan Family

Roy and Rachael, with their children Josh, Gabrielle and Caleb (or 'Kelepi' if you ask him, which is the Fijian equivalent) are the MMM Fiji Project Coordinators. Since their first trip to Fiji in 2006 on an MMM project, Roy and Rachael have known that they would one day live there. They have been back multiple times over the years and served as full time volunteers with MMM New Zealand from 2020 to 2022. They moved to Fiji in May of 2022 and have since been based in Sabeto, 20 minutes from Nadi airport.

From here they are reestablishing a work programme and coordinating local and international teams to complete building projects for the Christian community of Fiji.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can anyone work on an MMM project?

It doesn't matter if you are practically skilled or not, anyone with a willing heart can serve with MMM Fiji. There will always be a skilled team leader and/or volunteers on a project which makes it easy for anyone to participate and have great learning opportunities. So men or women, young or old, skilled or unskilled - all are welcome.

What does 'MMM' stand for?

Mobile Mission Maintenance was the original name we went by, but now the legal name is MMM (Fiji). 

Will we go on any day trips or activities?

Yes! Most projects are over at least a two week period and the middle weekend is a perfect opportunity to get out and about. The aim of the trip is always to complete the project, but of course we want you to make the most of the opportunity while you can, so we typically take a day trip to an island resort like South Sea Island or Malamala Beach Club during your time in Fiji.

What does a typical work day look like?

A typical MMM Fiji work day is 7.30am-5pm, Monday through Friday. However, we are all volunteers and if you just need to put your feet up and rehydrate for a bit, then we won't dock any of your pay! Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided onsite. At each morning tea we have a time of sharing a short Christian devotion and prayer.

What are the prayer needs for MMM Fiji?

We are always searching for regular local volunteers to work with us on all our projects, please pray for these people to find us! We are also looking for a property where we can establish our own permanent base. The Hogan family also email a weekly 'Prayer and Praise' update, so get in touch if you want to receive this email.

How many people live in Fiji?

The 2017 census found that the permanent population of Fiji was 884,887, with the latest projections putting it over 907,000. Between 1879 and 1916, Fiji's British colonial rulers brought 61,000 Indian people as indentured labourers (to work on Fiji's sugarcane plantations) which grew to 51 percent of the total population in 1966. Today's data shows Indigenous Fijians make up 56.8 percent of the population and increasing, Indo-Fijians make up 37.5 percent and decreasing, while other groups, including Europeans and Chinese, make up 5.7 percent. Religiously, Fiji is a mixed society with most people being Christian (64.4% of the population), with a Hindu (27.9%) and Muslim (6.3%) minority, according to the 2007 census. Religion tends to split along ethnic lines, with most Indigenous Fijians being Christian and most Indo-Fijians being either Hindu or Muslim.

What about Covid?

Effective 14 February 2023, international travellers arriving into Fiji by air or sea are no longer required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or travel insurance to enter Fiji. Anyone coming with a MMM team will still have insurance included as part of the package however.

How can I get assistance on my project?

Before you start applying for a project at your ministry, we want to hear your story, your heart for ministry and of course some details about the project. On the Contact Page, send us some information about the who/what/when/where/why and how MMM Fiji's support would expand your ministry. If you would prefer to talk this through with us, leave your contacts with us and we will be in touch to discuss it further.

Who pays for what?

If you are a volunteer coming to Fiji on a project, you pay all your expenses through a lump sum to MMM which includes air fares, transport, accommodation, insurance and food costs. You may want extra cash for spending on gifts, souvenirs or snacks etc. A two week return trip from Auckland can cost approximately NZD$1800 - $2200 (November 2022).

If you are wanting MMM Fiji to work on your project then you need to pay for all the materials, work with MMM Fiji to prepare morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea for the team, provide local volunteers to assist with the work and host all the MMM Fiji volunteers. This can include men, women, children and families. Past work groups have been up to 20 people. 

Do I need to bring tools?

It's a good idea to have your own tool belt, basic tools, PPE if you have them. If you have your own battery drills then of most projects they are good to bring along too. However MMM Fiji has a good range of tools, aprons, drills and power tools in Fiji already that you are welcome to use. Any other specific tool needs for projects will be discussed leading up to the trip.

How hot is it in Fiji?

Fiji has a warm tropical climate with maximum temperatures rarely moving out of the 26°C to 31°C range all year round. Southeast trade winds from May to October bring dry weather and the rainy/hurricane season runs from November to April.
