As first-generation immigrants, Fijians and Pacific Islanders identify themselves with the poor in this country and their needs align with the needs of the poor. As with any new immigrant group, there is great need among the new immigrants as they transition from their native surroundings to their new surroundings with limited resources. The church is in the best place to provide the resources that can be used to alleviate the effects of poverty in its members’ lives and even for people in the community.
