His words of encouragement keep echoing in my mind which keeps me strong.

These are the words of Filomena Tagici, 15, whose dad, Corporal Tevita Madakiliva is one of the 45 Fijian UN peacekeepers held captive by the Syrian rebel group, al-Nusra.

She is the only child of Mr Madakiliva.

“I miss how my dad used to wake me up early in the morning; my mother and I pray for him every day,” Filomena said.

Her mother, Atelaite Madakiliva said she had a feeling that her husband was one of those being detained when she heard the news.

“I was speaking with my husband over the phone on Tuesday before the incident took place and he said that everything was alright.

“However, I believe that through the bond that we share, I believe that he can speak to me through the spirit of God,”Mrs Madakiliva said.

The couple has been married for 19 years and this not the first time her husband has been assigned for peacekeeping duties.

“I believe God opened this door for my husband since we prayed for it and he is going to bring my husband back,” she said.
