Fiji Mormon Temple: 'It's Beautiful Inside!'

Fijian chief and Member of Parliament visits the Suva Fiji Temple

One of the approximately 22,000 dignitaries and members of the public who recently toured the Suva Fiji Temple was Member of Parliament and Paramount Chief of the Burebasaga Confederacy, Ro Teimumu Kepa.

After her visit, Ro Teimumu said, “It’s beautiful inside!”

She added, “I wish you all the best in your ventures here in Fiji. We have many souls that are out there, waiting to be saved. I hope you will be able to get out there. They don’t know that they are waiting to be saved. I hope that you will able to do something for them."

This Saturday (20 February) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will host a cultural celbration at Suva's ANZ Stadium featuring around 1,500 young performers.

The following day (Sunday 21 February) the Suva Fiji Temple will be re-dedicated. It was orginally dedicated in 2000 but has been closed for major renovations for over a year.
