AS more than 100 pastors of the Assemblies of God Church ended their 40 days fasting over the weekend, they put smiles on the faces of believers whose sickly condition were healed through spiritual intervention.

AOG northern presbyter Reverend Akuila Qalomaiwasa said the fasting on Taveuni brought people together. Mr Qalomaiwasa said there was a sense of unity experienced at the daily church worship.

"There were different denominations that gathered that night and we could feel unity and peace upon all of them as they sought God alone in those 40 days," he said. "More than 7000 people converged on the last night, which showed that people are hungry for the Word of God."

Mr Qalomaiwasa said the crowd increased every night at the church services during the 40 days fasting.

"I believe that there will be a breakthrough in Taveuni and a new way forward for the vanua," he said.
