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.

When writing this, I remember a friend who blew 16K on ice cream and fish chips for his friends. This money was loaned to him by a generous lady. It's intention was for raising chicken for meat and sell to restaurants. This friend wants to build a training school. His mismanagement made me question whether he really had the dream in the first place? Imagine had he utilized that money wisely, how much money he would earn, and make his dream a reality? My personal experience; I turned $80 into $3400 in few months through selling kerosene in the village. I earned the money from picking bottles on the street after working as a driveway attendant at a fuel station in town. I want to go into partnership with my brother in-law in selling petrol. He's jealous and not want other people to succeed or excel in life. What's my point? How can we instill stewardship in our young people? How can we teach them early on to be good stewards of the resources life has entrusted to them? If we cannot manage little, how can we manage big? Have a look at what Maduku did with the assistance he was given.
