Farewell The Year 2014 With Positive Attitude
The Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) 1st Battalion Fiji Infantry Regiment (1FIR) celebrated New Year’s Day at Koronikalou Methodist Church, at their Camp Ziouani at the Golan Heights.
The soldiers, under the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), ended 2014 with a church service led by battalion Chaplain, Captain Waisake Tikowale Vuli.
He told the soldiers to farewell 2014 with a positive attitude.
“In preparation for 2015, it is important that everyone farewells 2014 with a positive attitude, and a pure and righteous heart. It will greatly assist the peacekeeping journey on the Israeli occupied Golan Heights in 2015,” Rev Capt Vuli said.
His sermon was based from Psalms 24: 4 – 5 “he who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood, and has not sworn deceitfully, shall receive a blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation”.
Members of the 1FIR braved the cold and foggy conditions to hear the message from the chaplain.
Rev Capt Vuli emphasised the importance of having righteous heart as it enhanced individual performance and pursue for excellence, regardless of the different tasks and the challenges encountered daily.
After the service, the soldiers enjoyed their last Sunday lunch for 2014 and prepared themselves for the work in the New Year.
