Ten couples from the greater Suva-Nausori area shared marriage testimonials following the Marriage Ministries International organisation course at the Central Christian Church in Nausori.

Marriage Ministries International National Director Matai Niumataiwalu said yesterday the couples spoke on the changes that have taken place in their lives as a couple after the end of the 13 weeks course.

“The ministry through the work of Jesus has helped countless homes in Fiji since 1994,” Mr Niumataiwalu said.

“Our Married for Life course teaches couples the life-giving principles that make a marriage last,” he said.

“Marriage is intended by God to be a vibrant, dynamic state of ever-deepening love and growth.”

Marriage Ministries International is a teaching ministry and there are four courses of which each helps a husband and wife face and overcome the issues of their hearts.

Mr Niumataiwalu said in the One for Life (pre-marital) course, the engaged couples work through issues with parents and previous relationships. “Married for life focus on relational issues between husband and wife and Parents for Life examine parental issues both forward with their own children and backward with their parents.

“The ministry also offers a financial course called Financial Freedom in Seven Weeks Plus.”

Marriage Ministries International now known throughout the world as 2=1 International Ministries was established in Denver, Colorado, in 1983 and reached Fiji in 1994.

The teachings are based on Christian foundational principles.

Training has been conducted in Suva, Nasinu, Nausori, Tailevu, Navua, Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba, Tavua, Labasa and Bua.

“Social problems the country is facing today can only be tackled through spiritual means,” Mr Niumataiwalu said.

“We’ve seen the changes taking place in homes and we are inviting couples to go through the training.”

“We hope that we’ll partner with key stakeholders to help tackle the problems we face in this nation today. As marriages grow strong, families grow strong. As families grow strong, a nation changes.”
