An impromptu visit turned up at the Campus of Hope gates at Tuanaimato. The Office was not aware of any visitors on that day, and so as the Campus workers.
However, the Pastor’s wife, Selina Batiyaka, mothers from the women’s fellowship and youth members from the Assembly of God Harvest Centre at Lotopa, insisted on the visit as according to Mrs. Batiyaka, “we were given a mission by God to donate particularly to the children at the Campus of Hope.”
After the authorities at SVSG were notified and approved of the visit, the Campus was opened to the members of the AOG Lotopa who were amazed by the serene atmosphere as they walked through the gates, and were fascinated by the Campus as a whole.
But the most captivating moment was when the visitors met the children, whose faces beamed with welcoming smiles as if they knew all along that missionaries will be visiting them. The visit included sharing of testimonies from the visiting youths to encourage the children to remain strong; and was concluded in style when one of the Star Search winners for 2018, James Vito spoke to the children through singing.
Donations of food supplies were presented to assist SVSG with the daily caring for the children as part of the visitors mission. “We want you to know that you are very precious to God which is why He told us in our mission to visit you and donate towards your daily needs.” Mrs. Batiyaka
The AOG Lotopa’s visit continues the partnership SVSG establishes with various church communities throughout Samoa in support of the children of hope. It is a great reminder of God’s love which does not discriminate, but rather, encompass all of us as one.
“Thank you so much Mrs. Selina Batiyaka for continuing to support the work of SVSG. You have not only became one of the facilitators for the SVSG Advocacy Program for women, and now, you have led the women’s fellowship and the youth group of the Assembly of God Harvest Centre at Lotopa, to obey God’s mission for your congregation in this point in time. The children of hope appreciates all of you, and we as their carers, are grateful of your support.” Siliniu Lina Chang, SVSG President.
