Church members gather in American Samoa for first South Pacific lectures
Rebecca Jerkins and Julie Chilton, mission interns in Tafuna from Abilene Christian University in Texas, conducted a Vacation Bible School for children during the lectures.
“The young people have fallen in love with these two young ladies,” Willis said. “They are being great examples for Christ during their stay.”
Mara Ashley conducted a class for women each morning. Ashley and her husband, Lynn, moved to American Samoa in the early 1990s and assist the church. Members Salimu Tamapolu and Luaao Soli, along with Misa and Willis, led morning classes for men.
“All three congregations in American Samoa were represented at the lectureship, and it was a very strengthening and unifying experience,” said the Ashleys’ daughter, Colleen. Churches plan to make the lectureship an annual event.
