Ronji Tanielu Christian Missionaries
Talofa lava, my name is Ronji. Between 2015-2017, my wife and I travelled to 33 countries to serve as traveling Christian missionaries. Many of these countries can be classed as medium to high risk travel areas for foreigners, especially for Christians. We used Global Risk Consulting's security and risk assessment reports to guide and inform our travel plans. The information they supplied was detailed, easy to understand, and very helpful. We would not hesitate to use their services again. Thank you very much and God bless!
