It was a joyous occasion for church members on Yanuca Island in Fiji, during the official opening of their new church building on Thursday, March 31. Yanuca Island is located 30 minutes by boat
off the coast of Pacific Harbour, west of Beqa island, and is known to tourist divers as a “shark feeding” hot-spot.
The opening was officiated by Trans Pacific Union Mission (TPUM) president Pastor Maveni Kaufononga and Fiji Mission president Pastor Nasoni Lutunaliwa. The church building was funded by donations from Quiet Hour Ministry, and constructed in three weeks by Mr Qoriniyasi and his building team.
A team from the 10,000 Toes campaign was also present prior to the opening, to conduct health checks for the entire village. George Kwong, 10,000 Toes coordinator for TPUM, organised health consultations, and said the villagers were very appreciative of the health checks and were open to follow-up health programs in the future.
