Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare was the guest preacher at the Fulton Adventist University College church service on Sabbath (February 25).
Mr Sogavare spent time reminding staff and students of Fulton and members of the surrounding communities attending the service of the importance of reading and taking instructions directly from the Word of God, the Bible.
The university, based in Sabeto, Fiji, also hosted the Prime Minister and his delegation to a buffet lunch following the church program.
To the Solomon Islands community who attended the special lunch, some coming all the way from Suva, the Prime Minister encouraged them of the importance of being faithful in their service, be it study or work in Fiji.
Speaking passionately, he said faithfulness in the little things we do matters most: “I was a toilet cleaner when I started formal employment, always making sure I was the best toilet cleaner in my office. In 17 years, I localised the post of the Commissioner of Inland Revenue. Going through tough life must be accepted. To me, it was part of my development.”
He encouraged Solomon Islanders living or working in Fiji to look out for each other as family.
