WELCOME TO SAMOA: S.D.A World President Elder Ted Wilson with His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi.

The World President of the Seventh-day-Adventist Church, Elder Ted Wilson, met with the Head of State, His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi yesterday morning. 

The meeting was arranged during a special prayer breakfast attended by His Highness Tui Atua, the Masiofo, Her Highness Filifilia Tamasese, deputy Prime Minister, Fiame Naomi Mata’afa and several church leaders.

The meeting was one of the last activities for Elder Wilson and his wife Nancy before they left the country. 

The breakfast presented the chance for the World President to address the leadership of Samoa as well as pray for the nation.

 “The most important asset for all of us is prayer,” he said.

“It starts in the morning when we wake up we go to God in prayer to be with us in all that we do.

“Even during the day, we need to pray. We don’t have to be on our knees we just need to whisper to him and ask him to help us all if we feel like we are down.

“We need to spend time with Jesus on our own and seek for his blessings upon our lives.”

He reminded that every one has a purpose in life.

“We are walking the earth with a purpose to serve the Lord,” he said.

“Don’t depend on yesterday’s experience to lead you today but depend on God to guide you throughout the way.”
