PRESIDENT of the Seventh-day Adventist World Church, Pastor Ted Wilson paid a visit to the new Fulton College site in Sabeto yesterday.
Mr Wilson along with his wife, Nancy and president of the Trans-Pacific Union Mission, Pastor Waisea Vuniwa annointed the ground on which the new college was being built and planted trees to commemorate their visit.
