Tahiti student Torea Mohi stood tall when he was awarded the Excellence Award in Theology during the Fulton College graduation in Sabeto, Nadi.

The 26-year-old graduated with a Bachelor of Theology (Honours) and hopes to become a church minister in French Polynesia.

The decision to focus on God’s work, Mr Mohi said, came in 2013.

He said he made a complete turn with the hope to save souls. He said till then he had never regretted that decision and had also seen how God had worked in his life.

“Something had happened in 2013 that made me realize it is time to turn to God, I am so humbled by this award and the honour goes back to God because without him I wouldn’t have come this far,” Mr Mohi said.

He thanked his wife, Vehi Mohi for her support as they would soon celebrate their second year wedding anniversary.

Mr Mohi advised young men that the right time to offer their lives for God’s work was when they were still young.

“Sometimes people tend to give God the leftovers but we are fortunate that he is a loving God and his grace endures forever, when you are still young and energetic give everything you have for God’s glory,” he said.

“People should know that they can become successful if they put God first in their lives.”

Their next plan, Mr Mohi said was to focus on building on the family with his beautiful wife.

“We would love to have children someday, it is a blessing you know,” he smiled.

Mr Mohi said one of the major challenges he faced was trying to understand the English language.

“It was hard for me at first because I come from a French speaking territory, I had to spend another year trying to learn English before I took up the course,” he said.

Meanwhile, French Ambassador Sujiro Seam said he was proud of the achievements the three Tahitian students made at Fulton College.

“This is a significant step they have made and as you know Tahiti is a French territory in the Pacific, I am so proud to be part of this celebration today,” Mr Seam said.

“This will also better integrate and develop the relationship Fiji has with Tahiti not only that it will also change the lives of those students who have chosen to study here.”
