Australian forces occupied Nauru in World War I; it subsequently became a League of Nations mandate. After the Second World War – and a brutal occupation by Japan – Nauru became a UN trust territory.

    I was a missionary with Youth with a Mission for six years. During my time as a missionary in the South Pacific I was able to visit and later on stay and work with the main local church in the island. I have wonderful memories! My prayers with you and your ministry as you keep helping the beautiful people of Nauru to fulfill their destiny in Jesus Christ!
