The Fiji Mission recently held a special commissioning and dedication service for its first ever Adventist Health mobile clinic.
Over 50 people attended the ceremony, held at the Mission headquarters in Suva. Guests of honour included Fiji Mission president Pastor Luke Narabe and Fiji’s National Director for Wellness, Dr Isimeli Tukana, who commissioned the vehicle and spoke positively about the health ministry of the Adventist Church.
“As I have always maintained, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has the solution to the Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) rampaging impact in this country,” said Dr Tukana. “This new mobile clinic can only further your resolve.”
The 15 seater Toyota Minibus is set to make its maiden voyage to the village of Namoli, in the Sigatoka Valley in Fiji’s southwest. Though the village is completely Catholic, it has been sending invitations to local Adventist health leaders to bring a health program to the village.
“Our church members should be taught the Nike slogan, ‘Just do it’, in an all out attempt to involve every church member in the medical missionary work,” said Pastor Narambe. “It is time for a complete restoration—physical, mental, spiritual and social.”
