Heeding the call to serve

Torika Chandra

REAMA Caginiveivoka, 38, has never regretted answering the call in her life to be a Methodist Church minister.

She aspired to be a nurse when she was growing up but God had other plans for her and yesterday, she was one of two women who were ordained as ministers at the Centenary Church in Suva.

"It was amazing how doors kept closing every time I tried to pursue my dream as a nurse.

"I was interviewed twice at the Fiji School of Nursing but somehow that was not for me," Ms Caginiveivoka said.

"It wasn't until I decided to give it to the calling God had placed in my life that things started falling into place."

She was motivated to become a Methodist Church minister by her late brother Reverend Moape Tavakula who passed away in 2011.

Despite his absence in her life, she strived on completing three years in the Methodist Lay Training Centre, six years as a lay preacher and then two years at the Davuilevu Theological College.

"I believe that this is God's call in my life. I have never regretted for one second the decision I made to serve others, in fact I look forward to plans God has in store for me as I begin this new journey in my life."
