Welcome to Samoa

Re: 12 steps coming to Samoa

Welcome to Samoa pastors Rod and Jenny Carey. 

Fa’atalofa atu foi ile tinā ia Miriama Simanu, e ui ona ta te le masani.

I am a member of the E.F.K.A.S, the Samoan Congregational Church, but God knows I’m very pleased to see the Salvation Army members in my beloved beautiful homeland, Samoa. 

Indeed, you are one of the Christian Churches and your founder, William Booth is one of my spiritual heroes. 

I thank God for William and his wife, Catherine’s Christian ministry among the unchurched dwellers of London in the nineteenth century.

I pray that your ministry among my people will help them, but mostly will fulfill their spiritual needs. 

The Salvation Army has been active in social and spiritual works since 1878. And my prayer is to continue in Samoa for the glory of God whom I love. Ia manuia tele le galuega, Rod, Jenny, ma Miriama.
