Coming back from nearly five weeks in Fiji, partly to connect with the Methodist Church people for the Australian soli, I would like to make some comments. The church is very srong in the rural areas and the talatalas are hardworking in their circuits that I saw such as in Macuata and also in Nadi, Nawaka. I met many talatala during my trip which makes me contented with their call of ministry.
Rev Tomasi Kanailagi who has now retired came from Viwa Island where John Hunt established an outstanding Christian witness many years ago. Tomasi is a bit younger than me but I have known him for nearly fifty years. May God bless him in his retirement.

Former Methodist Church President Reverend Tomasi Kanailagi has retired with five other senior pastors. This is after 40 years of service with the Methodist church.
Acting General Secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said Reverend Kanailagi and the other five ministers have reached the age of 70 and so have opted to retire. Reverend Kanailagi is one of the members of the Standing Committee of the Church who is charged with breaching the Public Emergency Regulations and is not allowed to be part of any meeting.
