Visit to the poor

Salaseini Moceiwai
Monday, March 31, 2014

MEMBERS of the Youth Assemblies of the Fiji Islands took time out on Friday night to distribute food items to the less fortunate in Labasa.

The event was also their opportunity to reach out to the poor and spread the gospel of unity and togetherness.

Event co-ordinator TJ Loloma said it was the first time they had organised such an event.

"The members are youths from different Christian denominations who are also part of the Unity in the Body of Christ group," he said.

"We decided to come together to donate food items because we feel this was a way of evangelising.

"Our work is not only limited to ourselves but is extended to other youths and families out there who need our help."

Mr Loloma said the distribution was also part of their prayer initiative scheduled every Monday evening.

"Every Monday evening, we meet to pray for the youths in Fiji and with this food distribution, we know that we are making a difference in other people's lives.

"We will continue to reach out to offer our helping hands to the needy ones in society."
