Maduku Mamata was born on a tiny speck of land in the Solomon Islands, a pacific archipelago that is known as much for its desperate financial state as its outstanding natural beauty.
From growing up and helping his parents with their subsistence farming, to losing them at a young age and attending school to make sure he would be able to make his own way in the world, Maduku weaves an intricate story of how he ended up in Brisbane, attending college there to better his life.
Deported Into Destiny is a story of hardship, a desperation to make things better for one’s self and for others, as well as lessons learned the hard way. But it is also an enduring story of love and of doors opening when you least expect them to. This is a story of salvation amidst the wreckage of a single mistake and of hope triumphing eventually over adversity.

We produce after our own kind. And after we be gone someday, our children will continue to carry our names, exhibiting the values we instilled in them. And those values are called 'Philosophy.' This verse of scripture seems to perfectly described what I try to bring out here: 2 Timothy 1:5-"I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also." It's generational. What we believe in becomes our philosophy, and philosophy shapes one's behavior. The believe or philosophy was first lived out by the grandmother, then the daughter, and now is in the son, the offspring. We are not just living for ourselves. We are living for others. Keep shining and changing your world through your philosophy.
