First things first and in Samoa, God always comes first.
That was the case on Sunday night in front of the government building when the nation bowed during a thanksgiving service to start off this week’s Teuila Festival Activities.
The service was led by Reverend Fiti Aloali’i. This was followed by a Church Choir Exhibition featuring choirs from the Apia Protestant Church, Catholic Church, The Central Stake of the Latter Day Saints, Catholic Central, Bahai, Maluafou College, Assembly of God, Nazarene Church, CCJS Apia, Methodist at Matafele and the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
The Head of State, His Highness Tuimaleali’ifano Va’aletoa Sualauvi II and Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, were present. Here are some photos from the event:
