Saini Maramanibola of Nailega Village, Tailevu, has found a profitable way to help her family, thanks to the Methodist Church’s Festival for Praising God in Hymns and Gifts at Furnival Park in Suva.

The 30-year-old member of the Lagilagi circuit under the Makoi Methodist Church Division has been able to benefit from selling sandwiches, hot tea, milo and coffee at the church event.

“This year a lot of families were given choices by our respective churches, circuits and divisions to come and sell whatever we can make to help our families. I was able to go home with $200 profit every day,

“The conference this year is much easier compared to past years when we had to worry about our collection (soli), but now it’s a load off our shoulders and we are able to have more than enough to spend on things we want to sell here at the ground,” she said.

“The weather condition is perfectly fine since we are used to it from the past years. We are getting a lot of customers ever since Day One and there are no complaints at all,” she said.

“The Methodist Conference and the Hibiscus have a similar issue on the weather, but the major difference is that over here at the Furnival Park we find the weather to be very favourable to us as we are provided with customers everyday and making profit,” she said.
