Church builds home for steward

THE Naivikinikini Methodist Church in Lami officially opened the home of its steward last Saturday.

The congregation, families and friends gathered in Naivikinikini Village on Saturday to mark the event.

Church co-ordinator Kini Koto said the opening of the house was a milestone for the church and the community.

He said stewardship was an ethic that embodied responsible planning and management of resources of an organisation.

Mr Koto said the church invested a lot in the house and they were happy that it was officially opened.

"We have been waiting for this for a long time and this was a breakthrough for the church and also for the community," he said.

Methodist Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said it was a big step for the community to provide a house for their steward.

"It is up to the village or the community to build the house for their vakatawa (steward) and was not required by the church," Mr Nawadra said.

He said a church could elect its own steward or the Methodist Church school in Davuilevu could provide one.

At the end of the day, he said it would be a blessing for those who gave than those who received.
