Mother’s Day is usu­ally a time where chil­dren put into words how much they cher­ish their mother. It was a Mother’s Day ser­vice to re­mem­ber for the women of Nadera Methodist Church af­ter they pre­sented their new uni­forms to the con­gre­ga­tion. For eighty-two-year-old Miriama Vosa­taki, wit­ness­ing how her eight chil­dren have pro­gressed in life is her great­est bless­ing. Ms Vosa­taki, orig­i­nally from Vunuku, Moala in Lau said her eight chil­dren were now all em­ployed and mar­ried with chil­dren. “I can­not re­ally do much work at home thus the only thing that I now love do­ing is visit the House of God,” she said. “It gives me a sense of peace know­ing that I will be meet­ing the Lord soon.” Mean­while, Nadera Methodist Church women’s group leader, Te­maleti Bali, said the idea of ac­quir­ing new uni­forms was re­alised dur­ing a meet­ing this year. “We have a project com­mit­tee in our church and ev­ery year we planned to do some­thing new for the church and this time apart from dec­o­rat­ing the church we also thought of buy­ing uni­forms for our ladies,” Mrs Bali said.

“This change sig­ni­fies the unity that moth­ers in our church have and I am thank­ful for the sup­port of every­one in the church.” The women led the ser­vice yes­ter­day and preached on the theme ‘Let your faith shine dur­ing this time’.

I can­not re­ally do much work at home thus the only thing that I now love do­ing is visit the House of God. It gives me a sense of peace know­ing that I will be meet­ing the Lord soon. Miriama Vosa­taki 82-year-old mother
