With God, anything is possible. 

As a faithful Christian, Manua’e Williams truly believes that if you trust in the Lord with all your heart, things will fall into place. 

Today, Manua’e is very grateful that they’ve finally got the answers to prayers they’ve been praying for some times.

“I am very relieved and grateful to God for answering our prayers,” said Manua’e.

“Today is a very special day for our family. For your information, today, we finally received some good news that my children finally got their citizenship to go to New Zealand. 

“Two of my children have been waiting to get their citizenship so they can go and stay in New Zealand. 

“My two children are my late sister’s children who passed away in 2010. We’ve been trying to do their papers and we’ve been praying so hard to God to give us an answer, and we finally got the answer today. 

“It wasn’t easy; there were a lot of things that needed to be done, and we weren’t sure if we were going to get it all done any time soon. 

“But I can honestly say that it was all worth it. I had doubts in the beginning; I didn’t think that it was possible.

 “However, we prayed and asked God to help us with this because this is for the future of my children. I know that nothing is impossible if we trust God and ask him to take over.”

Manua’e said they did all they could and left the rest to God. 

“Like I mentioned before, it wasn’t easy. And we wanted so badly for this to be successful so we did our best and left the rest to God. 

“It took us two years to change the papers for the two girls to go to New Zealand and have a good future there. 

“That was a long time, and we felt like giving up at one point, but I held on to my faith and kept praying about it. 

“And that’s what I kept telling my children, to trust in God’s timing and to never give up. 

“Although I will miss my children, I know that they will be able to find a better future in New Zealand.”

Manua’e reiterated that you can do anything if you work hard and never lose hope. 

“In this life, nothing comes easy. You need to be committed and you need to work hard. 

“Hard work and prayers go hand in hand. And I want my children and other people to believe in this. 

“I held on to my faith because I know that only God can make the impossible possible. I trusted him and he gave us the right answers. 

“We need to keep knocking on his door and trust his timing. He might not answer our prayers instantly, but he knows what’s best for us. 

“Sometimes the challenges in life are there to test our faith. But no matter what, we should never question him and never give up.”
