TIME FOR A SONG: Photos and singing were popular ways to celebrate Mother's Day.

To celebrate Mother’s Day this year, the Navu First Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Vaivase-Tai focused on the importance of a mother’s role as a prayer warrior.

 “It’s a great reminder to let God carry our burdens by praying,” young mother, Fuatino Tuiletufuga said.

“We all know our roles in families, churches and the whole country but being a prayer warrior is something mothers are not taught about enough.

 “Personally, prayer is so important. It is a way to connect to the unwavering love of the Lord and how his mercy never ends.”

Mrs. Tuiletufuga said prayer is also a “reminder” that God is our source of strength’

 “The message today is very refreshing, because we all know that Jesus had the most important mission to fulfill, yet He was never too busy to pray.

“We need to be reminded of who God is every single day.

“For us mothers - we are told to pray without ceasing.”

At the Congregational Christian Church at Vaitele-Uta, closed to eighty mothers attended the service. The theme for this year is to – ‘Set your eyes upon Jesus.’

Mothers were divided into four groups to perform skits and dances of famous mothers in the Bible; Esther, Bleeding woman, Mary and Hannah.

Rev. Muao Su’a led the service.
