When God is first, everything else will fall into place.

With this thought in mind, the Health Sector came together in prayer on Friday to commit their work to God at the beginning of 2017. 

The service held at the E.F.A.S. (Ekalesia Fa’apotopotoga a le Atua) Apia brought together different branches of the sector including the Ministry of Health, National Health Services, National Kidney Foundation and other stakeholders.

“This is the annual programme for the ministry and its partners,” said the Director General of the Ministry of Health, Leausa Dr. Take Naseri.

“To us, it’s always good to start with God for we know there are challenges along the way but with Him all things are possible.”

“The fact is we can’t do anything on our own strength. Without Him, we would be unable to do anything.”
