President Panuelo Demonstrates Spiritual Solidarity with UCCP Pearl City Community in Hawaii
HONOLULU—Shortly after departing New York, upon the conclusion of his activities with the 74th United Nations General Assembly, His Excellency David W. Panuelo, President of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) attended church service with the Micronesian UCCP Pearl City community in Hawaii.
One of the central themes of the Panuelo-George administration is unity, and thus President Panuelo—a self-identified Catholic—wanted to demonstrate solidarity with his fellow Micronesian citizens by joining them in worship to emphasize the value of respect and cooperation with one another.
Freedom of religion is an integral component of the FSM’s national fabric. The President will be delivering remarks on how the genuine implementation of freedom of religion is a core component of the rule of law, and justice for all, at the International Law & Religion Symposium in early October.
President Panuelo expresses his sincere appreciation to Senior Pastor Mr. & Mrs. Jordan Gallen, Wahnparon Conrad Joel, Sounpadahk Jerry Malakai, and the UCCP Pearl City church community. He further expresses best wishes to the UCCP Pearl City church community for their upcoming 2nd year anniversary on November 2nd, 2019.
