A hero of sufferings

Dear Editor,

Samoa is blessed with a Lady bearing the marks of the suffering of Jesus Christ (Stigmata).

In a small island in the South Pacific with a population of about 180,000 people lives a lady name Toaipuapuaga a daughter of a C.C.C Minister Reverend Opapo who does have marks of the suffering of Jesus Christ on her forehead (crowning of thorns), both hands, feet and her side.

Toaipuapuaga in my translation is Hero of sufferings. 

I haven’t had the chance to meet her personally but in faith I believe she is a special and a chosen person by God and we Christian are privileged to have her here with us. 

She is perhaps the only person with these marks in the whole world. Samoa is blessed with a Lady bearing the marks of the sufferings of Jesus Christ.
