Taboo ends, province takes leap of faith

Monday, August 11, 2014

A THREE-YEAR journey of prosperity journey for the people of the Ra province begins today.

This follows the completion of three months of taboo which ended yesterday.

About 4000 people from the 93 villages in the province gathered at the Ra High School for the thanksgiving church service conducted by Reverend Apete Toko.

Ra Division chief steward Poniani Tabaka said they had embarked on a three-year program in a bid to prove to the world that they want change in all aspects of life.

"This is a challenge to us. The tabboo means the cry of the people of Ra. We need to work together spiritually and physically to return prosperity and blessings," Mr Tabaka said.

"The taboo is the beginning. We need to work with the spiritual lives of the people first before moving on to other areas including education and provincial development."
