The leader of the world wide Seventh-day Adventist church has called on the Prime Minister of Fiji, urging him to rule justly. Dr Ted Wilson visited Commodore Frank Bainimarama at his offices in Suva.
Bainimarama was pleased to have the Scriptures read and explained to him. Pastor Wilson recommended the counsel found in Micah 6:8 and urged him to rule justly, love mercy, and to walk humbly with his God.
The primary concern of government is to serve and look after the people. The counsel from God's Bible is wise and I have listened to it.
“The primary concern of government is to serve and look after the people,” the Prime Minister said. “The counsel from God’s Bible is wise and I have listened to it.”
And both leaders prayed together.

The world president also thanked the Prime Minister for providing religious liberty throughout Fiji. “It is a basic human right to allow all people the freedom to worship ,” Pastor Wilson said.
Dr Wilson also visited with the President of the Republic of Fiji, Ratu Nailatikau. He gave both leaders a personalised copy of the book “The Desire of Ages” by Ellen White. “Please do not put this book on a shelf somewhere,” he asked. “Please add it to your personal library.”
Both Fijian leaders encouraged Seventh-day Adventists to continue their educational and spiritual work with the people of Fiji. Pastor Wilson was accompanied by Pastor Waisea Vuniwa, the president of the Trans Pacific Union and David Gibbons, Communication Director for the South Pacific Division.
