Province in prayer campaign

Friday, May 23, 2014

THE prayer campaign by the Ra Province is continuing with the ceremonial lamp being transferred from village to village.

The lamp was in Rokovuaka on Wednesday and will be taken to its next stop tomorrow.

Symbolising the "'ight of God" it was brought to Rokovuaka by the turaga na tui Nalawa, Ratu Epeli Niudamu, and members of the Nalawa Methodist Church.

The Ra Provincial Council introduced the threemonth prayer campaign and asked all Christian believers to pray for the welfare of their people and the vanua.

The ban on vices and promotion of spiritual cleansing is aimed at changing people's lifestyle and improving the standard and quality of life.

The campaign was initiated by the council after a 2013 World Bank report identified Ra as the poorest province in the country.
