The Choy's in Fiji

Premend Choy and his family (wife Sharmila, daughters Charlene and Abigail) came to the United States in 2007 from Fiji to go to seminary and the Lord directed his steps to The Master’s Seminary in Southern California. He received his M.Div. in May of 2012 and completed his Th.M. in the fall of 2012. He recalls his time at this seminary as one of his sweetest experiences even though it was packed with rigorous academic training. He is grateful to the Lord for directing his steps to a seminary that is serious about training men as if lives depended on it!

Premend believes that the training has been instrumental in preparing him for godly living, for leadership in ministry, and for effective involvement in serving others.

Now that the training is over, Premend and his family returned to Fiji in early 2013 and have rejoined the faculty of the Fiji Bible College from which he graduated years ago. His focus in on training the next generation of young men for ministry in the South Pacific region. This Bible College has been training pastors for the past 38 years under the leadership of Dr. Narayan Nair.
