Physically challenged Vikram Chandra of Nagigi, Labasa has continued with the tradi­tion of hosting family members to celebrate Christmas.

The 58-year-old father of three sons said it was important to share the love of God who send his one and only son Jesus Christ to save sinners of this world.

“I am blessed to have three daugh­ters-in-law, who stay with us on this special day. Their families and friends along with my wife sat to­gether for special lunch and din­ner,” Mr Chandra said.

“Family bonding is very impor­tant.

“During this long weekend of the year we make sure to spend quality time together.

“All my sons are working and it is difficult to get everyone available under one roof.

“Such special occasions provide an opportunity for extended family like us to interact and have a sense of belonging,” said Mr Chandra, who used to sell packets of bean and peanut at Labasa busstand eight years ago.

“As Christians and followers of Jesus Christ, the Bible tells us that the world will know us by our love.

“The greatest testimony that we can be is to love those around us, whether family, friends or stranger.

“God puts no limits on love. Love must be sincere. Be devoted to one another in love and honour one an­other above yourselves.

“These are values I have been teaching my sons and now I pass this knowledge to my daughters-in-law. Love binds families together.”
