The fellowship and joviality experienced with fellow ministers and delegates from other parts of the country at the Methodist Church in Fiji annual conference has enlightened the spirit of the Koro delegations, says Reverend Atunaisa Lagilagi.

Reveverand Lagilagi, who is the divisional minister of the Koro division, is in Suva as part of the delegation from Koro Island attending the week-long conference.

Six months after the devastation of Tropical Cyclone Winston on Koro Island, Reverend Lagilagi said attending the conference would boost their spiritual and physical wellbeing.

“It’s good for us to come out of Koro for a few days because many of us, this is the first time we have left Koro since Cyclone Winston.

“It’s like some of our burdens have been lifted to be among our wider church family here in Suva,” he said yesterday.

Reverend Lagilagi said they were still rebuilding their lives which would take some time.

“We are still awaiting some rebuilding materials as people are still living in tents but we are working together as a family.

“We have been receiving a lot of assistance from the Methodist Church and the Government,” he said.

Reverend Lagilagi said they remained thankful as this was a challenge in their journey with God.

“What is important is that we are moving forward despite the obstacles that we faced in Koro,” he said.
