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.

All along, I thought death is physical ; when a person dies and was buried in the cemetery, that is death to me. But the book of scriptures tells us about one kind of death, and its' called 'visionary death'- Prove 29:18a NIV. It goes on to state that without vision, the people cast of restraint. Restraint here means discipline. The people cast off discipline. Without vision, there is no discipline. Discipline and vision are cousins. We apply discipline in the food we eat, what we drink, what we listen to, what we watch, the company and associations we keep etc...Very interesting and loaded verse of scripture. We cannot have discipline without vision. I love what Helen Keller said, "The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision." It is possible to be alive and breathing and be blind or dead.
Deported Into Destiny
I am convinced and still believe that without vision, people perish.
