SI Opposition Leader encourages students during SSEC closing party at USP

The Solomon Islands parliamentary opposition leader, Hon. Fred Fono and his wife, were hosted by the South Seas Evangelical Church (SSEC) students for an end of year party at the University of the South Pacific (USP) in Suva on Sunday evening.

The SSEC fellowship at USP also comprises other small but more active churches in the Solomon Islands such as the Assemblies of God, Christian Outreach Centre, and others. The end of year party is an annual event that usually occur whereby graduating students who are part of the fellowship group are farewelled and presented with gifts followed by a dinner function.

During Sunday's program, students were given time to reflect on their own christian lives throughout the whole year by sharing of testimonies, choirs, and encouragements from the Bible. Hon. Fono who was the chief guest at the closing party also encouraged students to become God-fearing individuals and live according to God's plan as this is the root of prosperity and success, as stated in the Holy Bible.

Honourable Fred Fono is currently in Suva, Fiji with his wife for a 3 weeks attachment with the Pacific Institute of Advanced Studies in Development and Governance (PIAS-DG) at the University of the South Pacific. He is also expected to talk to the Solomon Islands Student Association sometimes this week, to highligh the opposition's perspective of recent issues in Solomon Islands after the Prime Minister has clarified his stand to the student body on October 22.
