Joyful applause and acclamation filled the Wesley Chapel at Faleula , as members of the Methodist Church celebrated the success of five newly-ordained pastors yesterday.

During the packed service attended by families, friends and church members at the president of the Methodist Church, Rev. Lafai Apineru encouraged the servants of God to always have faith.

The pastors had already graduated from Piula Theological College in the last five years but yesterday was another step in the right direction in terms of their calling to serve God and their parishioners.

One of the ordained Reverends, Rev. Taeono Latu Amani was extremely grateful that they have been

able to reach this milestone in their lives.

“The glory belongs to our Heavenly father because without Him we wouldn’t be here,” he said.

“To all of our families and friends and the Methodist Church, thanks for your support and prayers.”

Rev. Siaki Haini acknowledged the hand of the Almighty and everyone who has supported them

through their journey.

“It has been a long journey and I just want to thank God for all that He had done for me and my wife especially the church,” he said.

“We have been chosen to serve and nothing else but to rely on God to lead and guide us in everything. The ordination ceremony was part of the church’s annual conference.
