Methodist Church in Samoa is continuing its usual services on Sundays and no changes have been made in the wake of the measles epidemic,

President of Methodist in Samoa, Reverend Faulalo Leti, told Newsline Samoa yesterday that the decision to continue the church's services is not changing as there is a need to continue in prayer to help Samoa especially those people who have caught the disease.

Rev Leti said the Church understands the current situation in the country but there is also the need to continue and be faithful with prayers and to remain faithful to the Sunday gatherings.

Rev Leti said that their Church has not come to a decision to cancel any programs.

He said they are continuing with their prayer meetings and fasting every Friday and they are uplifting those who have been affected by the measles and those who have lost their loved ones due to the disease. They are also praying  for the protection of the health workers as they carry out their duties he added. “ We want to pray and fast because we want our country to be safe during this challenging time in our country.”

Rev Leti however said that if any changes happen these will be announced and this will include church programmes.
