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.

I believe, in order to achieve something of lasting significance, that thing must first overtake our whole life, our whole consciousness. It's like a chicken brooding over her eggs day in day out until they hatch. We are living in an age and time where we are bombarded with information more than ever before. We need to filter information. We can only filter information if we know where and what we are going and doing-being clear of our life's purpose. And if we are not careful, we would be distracted from pursuing the very thing that is like fire in our bones-which is our vision. I also believe we are born to do only just one thing. And when we focus on that one thing, fire is the outcome. Think of focusing a magnifying lens on a cardboard or dead grass when the sun hits it, what's the outcome? Fire. Fire is the outcome. I hope we have found and discovered that very thing that is like fire in our bones.
Deported Into Destiny
So many good ideas just died and are covered in dust on office desks and cabinets. They sound so good on paper but aren’t compelling enough, and the people behind them lack a personal conviction that is stronger than death to propel those ideas into fruition. That’s why we aren’t seeing much progress.
