Palm Sunday in Fiji and Australia
It's customary in Fiji for the day of Palm Sunday to be a special day for children of the Methodist church to lead the church services and it's called Children's Sunday. In Labasa this year one family has made a special cake for the day so here's a photo of Peceli, who is in Labasa at present, admiring the cake - before breakfast, so I hope the cake can stay intact until lunch time for the children to share. And throughout Fiji children dress neatly and in unison to lead the church services.
Meanwhile in Australia it's dramas and joyful singing as in the East Geelong Uniting Church where our family go each Sunday.
Babasiga (pronounced bambasinga) is the dry land of Macuata in northern Fiji - our place in the sun in Fiji. Peceli is from Fiji from the village is Vatuadova and the beach is Nukutatava. Peceli Ratawa passed away on 27th December 2015 so this is Wendy's blog now. Wendy is an Australian and today live in Geelong, Australia.
