The Boys after Church, Palm Sunday 2013

Palm Sunday is “children’s day” at many churches in Fiji. The kids do everything for the service including the sermon, and recite bible verses. After the service, there is relief and euphoria, looking forward to playing together crazyily, and a big feast at which they are the guests of honour. Church is like many words when you come to Fiji – it actually means something completely different from what we would normally understand from that word. In this case, it is held in a corrugated iron shed. My son, far right, spoke his first Fijian language bible verse at that service.
