The Trans Pacific Union Mission (TPUM) launched its first devotional book on Tuesday (February 1).
There has been much anticipation and excitement from church members around the Pacific who have contributed devotional stories for the different days of the year.
After the contributing writers sent in their devotional stories and testimonies, the project was sent to various editors around the South Pacific Division and then on to Signs Publishing in Warburton (Victoria) for final compilation, printing and distribution.
TPUM family life director, minister Loleth Worwor, offered a dedicatory prayer over the boxes of books before they were shared with staff for distribution.
TPUM president Pastor Maveni Kaufononga was excited to receive the books. “This is a project that will enrich our family worship as families start their day with spiritual thoughts from someone’s experience in the Pacific,” he said.
He invited each family around the Pacific to buy a copy for their family and a copy for another family they are praying for and reaching out to.
Copies are available at local missions throughout the TPUM and ABC shops around the region. They can also be ordered online on the Adventist book centre website.
