The Samoa Independence Seventh-Day Adventist Church  (S.I.S.D.A.C) celebrated the opening of their new church building at Solosolo yesterday.

The service was well attended by the church leaders from overseas and Samoa – including the village’s Member of Parliament, Fonotoe Pierre Lauofo.

The building is located on a piece of land gifted to the church by the late Vailu’u Tuautu and Vaipapa Vailu’u Toailoa.

According to one of Vailu’u’s sons, Tagaloasa Paratiso Toailoa, the building is a dream come true for their family. 

“My parents would be so happy and proud that this has been completed,” he said.

 “I feel happy and sad at the same time because I wish that my parents are still alive to see their dream come true.”

The building took two years to complete at the total cost of $439,653.95. 

The church, made up of only three families, raised the bulk of the funds through their electrical businesses. There were also donations from overseas.

Tagaloasa said his hope for the building is that it would become a refuge for lost souls.

The leader of the S.I.S.D.A.C Church, Pastor Willie Papu, conducted the opening ceremony. S.I.S.D.A.C Solosolo is under the leadership of Pastor Ionatana.
