THE Northern Mothers for Charity, a group dedicated to charity work yesterday farewelled a staunch supporter.

Outgoing Nasea Methodist Church minister Reverend Savirio Vuata will take up his new posting in Dreketi, Macuata, next year after five years at the Nasea Methodist circuit in Labasa.

The group's representative, Arieta Moceica, said Mr Vuata would be missed by the charity group because he had worked closely with them providing the women with spiritual solace when the need arose.

"We need more men who are willing to stand up and dedicate their time towards the development of women and our communities as a whole," said Mrs Moceica.

"Mothers within the club take this opportunity to laud you and your family for the support that you have rendered to the group during the past few months.

"This is also a form of celebration for the achievements we have all made through the year."

An emotional Mr Vuata told the women that faith was the answer to the trials that life threw their way.

"A good Christian relationship with God is one based on faith and not in spirit as many believe because our spirits change but a faith built on God is one that can withstand all situations," he said.
