Sunday school ministry taking Christmas message to West
December 8, 2009

[Melanesian Messenger - Melanesia] Sunday School Children’s Ministry from the St. Barnabas Cathedral parish in Honiara is reaching out to the people of Western province on a Christmas mission that is set to kick off today.

Close to 100 children and their teachers left yesterday morning on the Anglican Church flagship Southern Cross on a mission that will last for two weeks.

Chairman of the Sunday school ministry Mr. Michael Palmer is leading the team.

With the theme ‘Reach the World for Jesus’ the team is preaching and teaching through drama and skits, singing and dancing and other social activities that allows them and their hosts to share and learn from each other.

“We hope this mission tour will help encourage not only young people but everyone we encounter to share stories, testimonies and personal experiences about Jesus and what it means to have Him as personal friend,” said Susan Eta a teacher who is accompanying the team.

The tour covers Gizo and Noro Anglican parishes as well as other Sister denominations at Roviana including Munda, Dunde, and Hopongo.

They will also be visiting Gizo and Hellena Goldie Hospitals to share their Christmas message with the patients.

The climax of the tour will be an inter-denominational rally to be organized at Hopongo in Roviana before the team returns to Honiara on December 20, 2009.

Ms Eta said the children are excited about the mission and hope to bring more people closer to Jesus.

The team had similar tours to other islands in the past.
