“As a promised child, Stephen-Fua can never be too young to take up God’s calling through community service to support young people.” Pastor Tuvai
According to the parents of 9 year old Stephen-Fua of California United States, it took them more than 10 years of praying to get a son. As such, when they had Stephen-Fua, to the parents, he was a promised child. At 5 years old, Stephen-Fua’s parents observed his willingness to help others. He wanted to help children with no shoes, with no food etc.
So while in Samoa, Stephen-Fua’s his parents brought him over to the Campus of Hope so that he can interact with the abused children. This is part of the Stephen-Fua Campaign to reach out and support other young people. It was inspiring to witness the love of God in this young servant and how he has committed his life to helping others.
The children at the Campus were motivated by Stephen-Fua’s campaign, and it challenged them to become agents of change in their communities once they are successfully reintegrated. The children’s interaction with others form part of their rehabilitation program while on Campus.
Pastor Tuvai shared that as parents, they wanted to fulfill their son’s dreams of serving and supporting other children who were less fortunate. He encouraged the children of hope of God’s plans, and how it goes beyond any injuries, scars or heartache they may have experienced thus far. As according to the Jeremiah 29 : “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Stephen returned to America after promising the children of hope that he will return to visit; that he will help out with the programs for the children at the School of Hope. As a promised child with privileges, Stephen feels responsible to help the children in need.
Thank you Stephen for being an inspiration to the children. And thank you Pastor Tuvai and Diana for the donation of food items for the children that day.
