Newly-ordained Methodist Church minister Reverend Anareta Vakadewatabua, 31, says she has witnessed the work of God in her personal life.

“I grew up wishing to become an army officer so I can  help protect my people and my country but then things changed; I did join the army but it was God’s army and not only to help and protect my people but to save souls and bring them to God,” she said.

“For with God nothing is impossible,” she said during the Methodist Church Annual Conference at the Centenary Church yesterday.

She is from Navunimono Village in Verata, Tailevu, with maternal links to Nabuna, Koro, but her childhood days were spent in Noco, Rewa.

Reverend Vakadewatabua is the eldest of five siblings.

“This is one achievement that will forever be cherished in my heart and will be one of those proud moments for my family as I carry on my grandparents’ work as they were church ministers in their time,” she said.
