Saints in Solomon Islands Celebrate First District with Service

  • 29 December 2011

Latter-day Saints in Honiara, Solomon Islands, celebrated the organization of the nation’s first district this month. The historic event was marked by the Saints’ humanitarian efforts throughout their communities.

For example, using humanitarian funds provided by the Church, members teamed up with a local Anglican congregation to renovate and repair a 40-year-old health clinic. Sixty people worked tirelessly for two weeks on the project.

Some 300 members of the Church attended the organization of the district, where Elder James J. Hamula, President of the Pacific Area, presided.
