Methodist Church’s Reverend Jimione Kaci, who for years has served our Fijian soldiers in the British Army says he’s been like a father to them. Reverend Kaci is from Muana-i-Ra Village, Fulaga in Lau.

“I have served in Sandbach Alsager Circuit for five years and also in Derby, United Kingdom (Midlands),” he said.

“I enjoy serving our British Army family in the United Kingdom and have become their father in my long years of service with them.

“Many of the Fijian British Army soldiers left our shores and their families when they were still young and over there I became their father and adviser,” Reverend Kaci said.

He said because of his close connections with them he was recalled to UK after returning to Fiji in 2009.

“In 2009 I came back to Fiji and served in Muanikau before I left again for the United Kingdom after being requested by our Fijian British Army soldiers to come over to serve them again.

“I have always tried many ways of making them understand the Gospel; most of them hardly went to church when they were in Fiji while some had just left school and joined the army,” he said.

“I always tell them to keep the faith and their moral values even when they are far away from home,” he said.

Reverend Kaci served in Naiyala from 1990 – 1993; he was chaplain of the Fiji School of Nursing and Fiji School of Medicine from 1994 -1998 then went to Sinai in mid 1998 until 1999.

He served in Namaka Circuit from 1999 to 2000 and later in the Nadi Division from 2002 to 2003 before leaving for the UK on July of 2003 until 2008.
