Archbishop of the Diocese of Polynesia Winston Halapua thanked Anglican followers in Vanua Levu for raising a man clearly gifted for the work of God.

Archbishop Halapua said this at the ordination of Bishop Henry Bull, the new head of the Vanua Levu and Taveuni Episcopal. He took over from Bishop Apimeleki Qiliho who retired.

More than 200 people congregated at the St Mary’s compound to wit­ness the ordination in Labasa yes­terday.

“Today with Henry Bull being ordained, he is the first bishop of Vanua Levu who hails from the is­land,” Archbishop Halapua said.

‘We also thank the people of Va­nua Levu for producing a son that God has gifted to fulfil the calling from above.

“It is a great moment for the church when he was ordained to­day and this is another milestone achievement of the church.

“The Anglican church in Vanua Levu and Dreketi has grown in the North and mostly where Bishop Bull is based,” he said.

“God have been using him might­ily in winning souls to the kingdom of God and we will continue to preach about the love of our great God.

Bishop Bull, he said, is a loving husband and father to six children.

“As a father, he is great an exem­plary, he is very hard working and is a Christ like character,” he add­ed.
