Pacific delegates attend All Pacific Arise conference

Delegations from the Solomon Islands, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea were among the participants at the All Pacific Arise conference currently underway at the TATTE building in Sogi.

The conference officially opened on Sunday and focuses on a Christian network for prayers and consultations for the Pacific region.

The main purpose of the Pacific prayer network is to pray for revival and restoration in the region and the churches.

A representative from Solomon Islands, Reverend Michael Maileau who is also the Chairman of Emeritus, shared his perspective on the significance of the conference.

“The world is currently in a mess and only God can liberate the world through his son our Lord Jesus Christ. We feel that this is the time for Polynesia to arise and we will help to take the gospel back to Jerusalem.

“We are not a church or an organisation this is a movement which embraces many denominations. 

“It is such a relief to see Polynesia come on board and then together we face the world with our burden is to take the gospel to people who have never heard of it,” he added.

Rev. Maileau said during the first day of the conference, representatives from West Papua, New Caledonia, Hawaii and French Polynesia talked about being free from suppression.

“They were talking about wanting to get free from the colonial powers before God they have the right to look after their own. With the suppression of the colonial powers it is not good and they hoped that God will help them and liberate their people to their own before God.

“From this conference we hope that other countries in Polynesia will host the next meeting and spread across the whole pacific.

“It is our hope to work together and stand for Israel and whatever the Lord leads us our goal is to bring the light of the world to those who are without the gospel and we hope to continue this movement in the future.”

 The conference ends on 30 May.
