After nine years of commitment and sacrifices from the school administrators and students, Jones Adventist College (JAC) in the western province of Solomon Islands dedicated its new church on June 2. The project was also made possible thanks to contributions from families around the country.
The church was named Sasa Rore Memorial Seventh-day Adventist Church as a tribute to the late Pastor Sasa Rore, a pioneer missionary of Solomon Islands.
The dedication service was attended by representatives of the Solomon Islands Mission, western provincial government officials, Pastor Rore’s family, current and former students and staff, nearby villages and communities. The family of the Late Allan Paul, founder of JAC, was also present.
“Nine years of sweat and labour have created a place where students can now call their place of worship and where they can learn more of the love of Jesus,” said JAC principal Bevan Tutuo.
He also thanked all who have attended and all who have made contributions towards completing the church.
