Meals Needed!

Rebuilding Maniava
The Missions Committee has heard about the rebuilding of the village of Maniava in northeast Viti Levu, Fiji which lost 35 out of 37 homes in Tropical Cyclone WINSTON early 2016 which is still proceeding as money becomes available.   A sum of $684 was being held in the event of another cyclone before the end of this year but it has been decided to send this to Fiji now to buy building materials for the rebuild of Maniava.
