More than 300 people converged at the Nailaga Methodist Church on Sunday 4th December 2016 to witness the launching of the “Tuxutuxu Vina sa Vola xo Marixa – ena Tata vaxa-Ba” (Gospel according to Mark in the Koronubu-Ba language).

Maintaining self-worth and safety

While casual dating can be a fun and exciting way to spend your time, it can also be difficult to navigate when you don’t feel good about yourself or you don’t feel safe. If you find yourself questioning your self-worth, becoming defensive, or feeling unsafe in your casual relationship, it may be time to reassess the relationship. It is important to remember that casual dating is a two-way street and that both partners are equally responsible for the relationship. If you’re finding yourself feeling unworthy or unsafe in the relationship, you have the power to end it. There is no need to remain in a relationship that is harming you and causing you pain.
