Reverend Iliapi Tuiwai, 62, is looking forward to the challenges as the new Divisional Superintendent of Suva.

This is his third appointment as a senior minister, adding that he would continue to work from where his predecessor Reverend Eroni Moce left.

“I will try to work together with all the reverends and, especially the senior church ministers,” he said.

“We will look into planning a way forward for the Suva Circuit. I was amazed with the words of encouragement and support,” Reverend Tuiwai said.

In his message to the church, Reverend Tuiwai said he would lead the church members forward but requested that the members give him time.

He was inducted as the Divisional Superintendent of Suva at Centenary Church in Suva yesterday before the president of the Methodist Church in Fiji, Reverend Epineru Vakadewavosa.

Reverend Tuiwai is from Lomati in Kabara, Lau, and was surrounded by family and church members.

An emotional Reverend Tuiwai said his first appoint as the senior reverend was in Savusavu in 2007 – 2012 and later to Wailevu in Cakaudrove.
