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 usually find inspirational stories in the book of scriptures to keep me moving forward. It's a good textbook. An account of one of them stories can be found in Genesis 37: 12-28. This is about Joseph. His destination was Dothan. He wandered in between in the fields looking for his brothers. They moved to Dothan. A 'certain man' appeared and gave him the address, map, direction, information of how to get to Dothan. The man did not travel with him. Next, his brothers sold him to the Ishmaelites who gone into Egypt. What's the point in this story? When we're given a dream, and pursue that dream, we might seem confused and lost. This is where the universe is making arrangements
for people and resources to meet us-a defining moment when it feels and seems like all hope is gone. Sometimes, life has to test the authenticity of the dream, to see whether we really believe in the dream from the outset. If we give up, turned back and went home, then we don't really had the dream at the first place. Keep moving; a man and a caravan are on the way.

Suddenly a woman in her mid-forties pulled up and offered me a lift. “Where did you want to go, young man? I can give you a lift to your destination,” she said.
