North Malaita's former militant commander sunk old ways at Baptism in Malu'u

Former Malaita Eagle Force Commander Jimmy Rasta Lusibaea has been baptised.

Lusibaea was baptised by Pastor Lemuel Laufilu at Aethawanekao at Malu’u, North Malaita on Saturday last week.

A North Malaita man, Lensley Kwaimani, reports that Lusibaea was baptised at the spot where late Peter Ambuofa landed with the gospel to his people from Queensland, Australia.

Kwaimani describes the occasion as the “Dawn of a new day" for the former MEF Commander, who publicly showed to the world and men the sign of repentance.

Kwaimani said among newly baptised souls were other former MEF members and other young people from the Zion Local Church in Malu'u.

Commenting during the occasion, a church and a Community Elder, Penuel Idusulia said the former militants' baptism highlighted the greatest gift for the people of North Malaita for the Easter, with Jesus dying on the cross for the people.

Mr Lusibaea and the other former MEF members have sought forgiveness from the communities.

The occasion was organised by the Zion Local Church of the South Seas Evangelical Church in Malu’u, North Malaita.
