"I LOVE him so much and I am strong knowing that he is stronger on the other side," says Nia Waqavonovono, the wife of one of the peacekeepers being held hostage in Syria.
"If he comes back home losing a limb, I will always be there for him. I'll carry on what I gave him as a promise on our wedding day four years ago."
This was the only message that had kept her going in the past five days in her quest to see her husband Able Seaman Ilitomasi Nawalu Waqavonovono's safe return home.
At yesterday's vigil at the Centenary Church in Suva, Mrs Waqavonovono broke down in tears after lighting a candle for her husband.
"Ever since it happened last week, I never cried. I had hope. I felt that he was all right.
"Only when I came in here, I was touched by everyone who is here today," she shared.
"I thank each and everyone that came here, the UN and the different church delegates. As of now, I am not only praying for my husband but the rest of the captives, the rebels and those in charge and even the negotiation team there with them at the moment."
