JBI celebrates Vanuatu’s 40th anniversary of independence!

0001-01-01 Yumi JBI IMG_On July 23, 2020, the students from Joy Bible Institute joined the Victory Parade to celebrate Vanuatu’s 40th anniversary of independence. Their antiphonal calls of “Yumi!… 40!…Yumi!…40!” could be heard as they marched through the streets of Port Vila up to Indpendence Park.

The students carried a banner boldly proclaiming from Galatians 5:1, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.”


What a privilege to join in the celebration in recognition of the freedoms and responsibilities incumbent on us as citizens of Vanuatu and even more as citizens of the kingdom of God. “Long God yumi stanap!”

May the Lord continue to bless Vanuatu!
