ON the last Sunday of November, Pastor Uzzaiah Movo was laid to rest in Arawa, Central Bougainville.

Pastor Movo was an important figure in the development of Bougainville. As a church leader before and after the Bougainville civil war, he was a role model and part of the Bougainville peace building and government process.

According to Pastor Francis Munau, it was Pastor Movo who dedicated the Bougainville Constitution and affirmed Bougainville as a Christian region in God’s hands.

Pastor Movo was also a council member of the Arawa Urban Council committee. He exercised positive influence over people’s lives as a church and community leader.

Pastor Steven Manganai stated during the funeral service that death is as natural as birth and God has already pre-destined us in his eternal plan.

Pastor Mangani continued that the body is created by God to carry the spirit of life and, when His purpose is done on earth, God takes back the spirit from the body.

After the service, Pastor Movo’s body was laid to rest at a cemetery in the Kaabaku area, some distance from Arawa town.

Our condolences are extended to the departing leader’s immediate family in Arawa.

May his wonderful soul rest in eternal peace.
