Ro Teimumu: Keep praying for our sons

THE Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa is pleading with the public to continue praying for the Fijian soldiers detained by the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front. In her plea at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday, Ro Teimumu said: "I wish to thank the people of Fiji for their continuing prayers for our sons who are facing trying times in the Golan Heights.

"I again appeal to the people of our beloved Fiji - please pray and fast for our sons the members of the RFMF who have been arrested by the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra. Whilst we plead with greater respect to the Commander of the RFMF that he places his faith and trust in the professional skills of the UN negotiating team."

She also pleaded for prayers for the affected families and to ask that the Lord's peace and trust was sought to cover them during this difficult period.

"Fiji is blessed and will always be a blessing to other nations on earth because our forefathers in their wisdom made a covenant with God through Christianity and it was through the enduring power of the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"We petition therefore to God through this covenant that goodness and mercy will take control over the negotiations and ensure the safe release of our peacekeepers. And that the Lord continue to bless them and their families.

"From our side it's very difficult - the UN I believe will provide the best that is available."
