Methodist Conference Timetable

Bau Island is ready for the Methodist Conference and today a ceremony will take place to seek permission for all the visitors to come. From Fiji Times 17th.
"This is an important occasion not only for Bau but Tailevu as a whole because the hosting of the conference is returning 152 years after Christianity reached the country.(area) We haven't hosted it for 152 years since Ratu Epenisa Seru Cakobau accepted Christianity in 1854 when the Takia left here to take the good message around the country."
