Man of God feeds flock

Luke Rawalai
Friday, May 16, 2014

MEN of God not only have a calling to feed their flock spiritually but physically as well, says Labasa Methodist Circuit head Reverend Jona Ledua.

Mr Ledua made the comment after he harvested humongous yams from his back yard garden last week.

He said servants of the church do not only belonged in pulpits but they had a responsibility to look after the well-being of their flock both in the physical and spiritual sense.

"I had shared most of these with my church members here in Naseakula and the harvest has been really good this year," Mr Ledua said.

"With my three years of serving in Labasa, I decided to use the piece of land in my back yard, which used to be a dump site, to plant yams.

"Seeing the returns this year has put within me an eagerness to plant more for next year."

Mr Ledua said he was assisted by another church member, Aporosa Tuqovu, who helped him prepare land and plant the crop.

"I believe that nobody in Fiji should be living in hunger because things are readily available locally. All we have to do is put a little effort in our back yards to feed our stomachs."
