Susuga ile Fa’afeagaiga mai Sapapalii, Savaii, EFKS Rev. Auatama Esera, our guest sermon today ~ GOD BE PRAISED!!!! Graced us with his beautiful Faletua Tamara Esera. heart emoticon Moni ai le upu a le atunu’u, ua fetaui fola…. Sapapalii is where the Gospel of Jesus Christ carried by John Williams and the London Missionaries Society landed on Aug. 24, 1830; that their Faifeau would preach in Leone Siona for the first time in his 18-year pastorhood, humbling when all know, Leone is the first place in eastern Samoa that Missionary Williams arrived in, Oct. 18, 1832. angel emoticon
Fa’afetai mo le Feau taua mai le Atua mo i matou ile nei aso, saunia e Lana auauna, le Faifeau o Esera….. galulue fa’atasi, finau fa’atasi, ia loto e tasi. HALLELUJAH!!!!!!! grin emoticon heart emoticon Pastor Esera spoke of the olden days when Hebrew scholars would teach students from other nations, other countries the Hebrew language and principles. That it was this spirit that Alexander the Great took on, he was taught by others to be a great leader, a statesman of short stature that rose up in enormous heights. smile emoticon
Pastor Esera spoke of a humble little man from Leone named “Amoamo”, who paddled his little canoe to Sapapalii in the beginning stages of the Gospel being spread in Samoa. That amongst the many scholars of Samoan islands in the west, Upolu & Savaii, here was this one lone man from Tutuila, who hungered for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and came to Sapapalii to learn of the WORD…. Who dwelt amongst us. Ole naunau lena o Amoamo ile Tala Lelei, ua fa’atala leleiina ai Samoa atoa i Tutuila ma Manu’a. angel emoticon As Taeaoafua Meki Tavita noted to Pastor Esera, “Leai se isi ole nei tapuaiga e le o maligi loimata ona o lou fa’amanatu mai ia i matou, le finagalo ole Atua mo fanau a Leone, aemaise le ola finau o Amoamo mo mea lelei tau le Atua.” heart emoticon kiss emoticon
