Heavens open amid praises

LIGHT showers of blessing sprinkled on thousands of believers at the fourth day of the Methodist Church of Fiji golden jubilee celebrations at Furnival Park, Toorak, in Suva yesterday.

Staunch Methodist followers gathered to celebrate the new birth of the church after its independence, and herald its new journey into the future with hymns from the mass choir reaching out to the heavens with praises.

Methodist Church of Fiji secretary for communication Reverend James Bhagwan said there were presentations of messages from the various Methodist churches around the Pacific.

He said it was a time of worship and gifting for their members.

"We have a lot of activities throughout this week and we have choirs singing throughout the week," Mr Bhagwan said.

"The fund raised from the Kubuna Day on Tuesday was $4292.10 and the money raised by the Methodists from Germany was $5000.

"The total amount raised on Kubuna Day was $9292.10 and we haven't got the figures on the money raised during the Burebasaga Day today (yesterday) yet."

Mr Bhagwan said funds were also given by the Methodist Church from England for development projects.

He said the funds given for the development project was 10,000 Euros ($F24,524).
