Children of Talei Christian Fellowship in Nadroga on Sunday displayed an interesting drama to depict Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem as saviour and king to mark Palm Sunday.

Fifty children were dressed in red and white and laid palm branches in his path as a sign of royal treatment. They shouted “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven”

Church spokesperson Tevita Momo said the children had been preparing for their stage performance since Friday. But weeks before that, Sunday school teachers and helpers were perfecting the children’s drama.

On the spiritual side, children were involved in prayer sessions and fasting, Mr Momo said.

Talei Christian Church comes under the Assemblies of God, and its congregation consists of close to 80 members; 50 are children.

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter that marks the beginning of the Holy Week, a day celebrated by Christians to commemorate the day Jesus entered Jerusalem  before he was crucified on Calvary.

Church Senior Pastor Mere Dawai said as churches around the country celebrated Palm Sunday they should also think of unfortunate children.
