A thanksgiving service at Navesau Adventist High School in Fiji included the baptism of five students.
After the challenges of last year, which saw the closure of schools in Fiji for more than six months due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was a time of celebration to acknowledge the achievements of the school’s Year 13 students.
The students only returned for face-to-face classes on November 1, creating a huge challenge for teachers in trying to prepare them for their external exams. Not only did the students perform very well in the exams, Navesau topped all the high schools in the Ra district.
During the thanksgiving service, Trans Pacific Union Mission education director Mele Vaihola delivered a powerful message on the theme “Our Eyes Are Upon You Lord”.
There have also been celebrations at Lautoka Seventh-day Adventist Primary School with 15 of its students baptised following Bible studies with pastors Lui Koro and Thomas Albert. This is the highest number of baptisms at the Fijian school since 2014.
