Ko e meʻa ko ia ‘okú ne ngali taʻofi e tokoni fakalangí, ʻoku ʻikai ke ne ʻufiʻufi ʻe ia e ʻOtuá; ka ʻokú ne faʻa ʻufiʻufi pē ʻe ia kitautolu. ʻOku ʻikai ke teitei fakapuliki e ʻOtuá ia, ko kitautolu pē.

Ne tangi e Palōfita ko Siosefa Sāmitá, ʻi he lolotonga ʻene faingataʻaʻia ʻi he Fale Fakapōpula Lipetií ʻo pehē: “ʻE ʻOtua, ʻokú ke ʻi fē? ʻOku ʻi fē ʻa e fale ʻoku ʻufiʻufi ʻai ho fufūʻangá?”1 ʻOku tokolahi ha niʻihi ʻo kitautolu ʻoku tau ongoʻi ʻoku mamaʻo e ʻOtuá meiate kitautolu, ʻi he momeniti ʻo e faingataʻaʻia fakatāutahá.

ʻE siʻi ange e ongo ʻoku tau mamaʻo mei he ʻOtuá ʻi heʻetau hangē ha kiʻi tamasiʻi siʻi ʻi Hono ʻaó. ʻOku ʻikai faingofua ia ʻi ha māmani ʻoku uesia lahi ai ʻe he fakakaukau ʻa e kakai kehé ʻa ʻetau ngaahi taumuʻá. Ka ʻe tokoni ia ke tau ʻiloʻi e moʻoni ko ʻení: ʻOku ofi mai mo ʻafioʻi kitautolu ʻe he ʻOtuá kiate kitautolu pea ʻoku ʻikai ke Ne teitei fakapuliki Ia mei Heʻene fānau faivelengá.

Naʻe fakahaaʻi mai ʻe hoku mokopuna fefine taʻu tolú e mālohi ʻo e loto-maʻá mo e loto fakatōkilaló ʻi heʻetau fetuʻutaki mo e ʻOtuá. Naʻá ne ʻalu mo hono fāmilí ki he ʻoupeni hausi ʻo e Temipale Pilikihami Sití ʻi ʻIutaá. Naʻá ne ʻeke ʻi heʻene sio takai holo he taha e ngaahi loki ʻo e temipale fakaʻofoʻofá, “ʻE faʻē, ko e fē ʻa Sīsū?” Ne fakamatalaʻi ange ʻe heʻene faʻeé he ʻikai ke ne lava ʻo sio kia Sīsū ʻi he temipalé, ka te ne ongoʻi pē Hono ivi tākiekiná ʻi hono lotó. Ne fakakaukau fakalelei ʻa ʻIlisa ki he tali ʻene fineʻeikí pea fiemālie ai mo ne pehē, “ʻOi, ʻoku ʻalu ʻa Sīsū ia ʻo tokoniʻi ha taha.”

Ne ʻikai ha meʻa ia te ne ʻai ke veiveiua e mahino ʻa ʻIlisá pe taʻofi ʻene ʻiloʻi e moʻoní. ʻOku ofi e ʻOtuá kiate ia, pea ʻokú ne ongoʻi ofi kiate Ia. Naʻá ne ʻilo ko e temipalé ko e fale ia ʻo e ʻEikí pea ne toe mahino ki ai ʻoku maʻu ʻe Sīsū Kalaisi ha sino toetuʻu nāunauʻia pea ʻe ʻi ha feituʻu pē ʻe taha ʻi he taimi ʻe taha.3 Naʻá ne ʻilo kapau ʻoku ʻikai ke ʻi Hono falé, ta ʻokú Ne ʻi ha feituʻu kehe. Naʻá ne ʻilo mei he meʻa naʻá ne ako ki he Fakamoʻuí, ʻokú Ne hāʻele ki ha feituʻu ʻo fai ha ngāue lelei maʻá e fānau ʻa ʻEne Tamaí. Ne mahino naʻe ʻikai ko ʻene fie sio kia Sīsuú ke fakamahinoʻi ʻokú Ne moʻui ka koeʻuhí pē ko ʻEne ʻofa kiate Iá.

ʻOku lava ke fakahā ʻe he Laumālié ki hono ʻatamaí mo hono loto kei siʻí ʻa e fakafiemālie ʻoku tau fie maʻu mo fakaʻamua kotoá. ʻOku moʻui ʻa Sīsū Kalaisi, ʻo ne ʻafioʻi, maluʻi, mo tokangaʻi kitautolu. ʻI he taimi ʻo e mamahí, liʻekiná, pe puputuʻú, ʻoku ʻikai fie maʻu ia ke tau sio kia Sīsū Kalaisi ke ʻilo ʻokú Ne ʻafioʻi hotau ngaahi tūkungá he ko Hono misioná ke faitāpuekina.

Ne ʻomi ʻe he Siasí ha faingamālie ke u mavahe mei Kalefōnia ki he Kolisi Likí ʻi Lekisipeeki ʻi ʻAitahō. Mahalo ne hoko ʻeku ngaahi taumuʻa fakapalofesinale he moʻuí ko ha meʻa ke ne fakamavaheʻi au mei ha Tamai ʻofa naʻá Ne ʻafioʻi lelei ange au mo hoku kahaʻú. Ka ʻi he taimi ko iá, naʻe tāpuekina ʻaki au e ʻilo ko e lavameʻa kotoa pē ʻi heʻeku ngāué mo e moʻui ʻa hoku fāmilí ko ha meʻaʻofa ia mei he ʻOtuá. Ko ia ai, ne u hangē ko ha tamasiʻi siʻí ʻo u tūʻulutui ʻo lotu ke ʻeke pe ko e hā e meʻa totonu ke u faí. Ne u ongona ha kihiʻi leʻo siʻi ʻoku pehē mai, “Ko hoku ʻapiakó ʻeni.” Ne ʻikai ha meʻa ia ke ne ʻufiʻufi au mei he ʻOtuá. ʻI he tui mo e loto-fakatōkilalo, ne tuku hoku lotó kae fai Hoʻoná, pea ne u ongoʻi ʻEne ofi mo tokanga maí.

ʻI hoku ngaahi taʻu ʻi he Kolisi Likí ne u feinga ke fekumi ki he finangalo ʻo e ʻOtuá ʻo fai ki ai, ke taʻofi ai ha meʻa te ne fūfuuʻi au pe ʻufiʻufi e ngāue mālohi mai ʻa e ʻOtuá ʻi heʻeku moʻuí. ʻI heʻeku feinga ke fai ʻEne ngāué, ne u ongoʻi ofi kiate Ia mo ongoʻi moʻoni ʻokú Ne ʻafioʻi hoku tūkungá mo tokanga moʻoni ke u fiefia. Hangē ko e meʻa ne hoko ʻi Sitenifōtí, ne kamata ke hū mai e ngaahi taumuʻa fakaemāmaní kiate au. ʻI he fakaʻosinga e taʻu hono nima ʻo ʻeku hoko ko e palesiteni ʻo e Kolisi Likí, ne foaki mai ha ngāue lelei ʻaupito. Ne u fakakaukau mo lotua ia pea aʻu ʻo aleaʻi ia mo e Kau Palesitenisī ʻUluakí. Ne nau tali lelei ia mo kiʻi fakakata pē ka naʻe ʻikai fai mai ha tali pau. Ne fanongo ʻa Palesiteni Sipenisā W. Kimipolo ki heʻeku fakamatalaʻi e faingamālie naʻá ku maʻu mei ha kautaha lahi peá ne pehē: “ʻOku sai ia Hala, ko ha faingamālie fakaʻofoʻofa ia! Kapau te mau fie maʻu koe, te mau ʻilo e feituʻu ʻokú ke ʻi aí.” Ne nau mei ʻiloʻi e feituʻu ʻoku ou ʻi aí, kae mahalo ʻe hanga ʻe heʻeku fakaʻamu ki ha lavameʻa fakapalofesinalé ʻo fakatupu ha meʻa ʻe faingataʻa ai ke u ʻilo e ʻOtuá pea toe faingataʻa ange ke u fanongo mo muimui ki Heʻene fakaafé.

Ne ongoʻi ʻeni ʻe hoku uaifí ʻo ne maʻu ha ongo mālohi ke ʻoua te ma mavahe mei he Kolisi Likí. Ne u pehē ange, “ʻOku sai pē ia kiate au.” Ka naʻe vili pē ke u feinga ke u maʻu ha fakahā. Ne u toe fai ha lotu. Ne u maʻu ha fakahinohino, ʻi ha leʻo ne ongo mai ki hoku ʻatamaí ʻo pehē, “Te u tuku ke ke nofo ʻi he Kolisi Likí ʻo kiʻi fuofuoloa.” Mahalo naʻe hanga ʻe heʻeku fie maʻu fakatāutahá ʻo fakakuihi ʻeku vakai ki he moʻoní pea faingataʻa ai ke u maʻu ha fakahā.

Ne ʻafioʻi ʻe he ʻOtuá ʻe fā e tānakiʻanga vai ko iá pea ʻe fie maʻu ʻe ha kakai ʻe toko laungeau ha tokoni. Naʻá Ne tuku mai ke u fekumi ki ha faleʻi mo maʻu ha ngofua meiate Ia ke nofo pē ʻi he Kolisi Likí. Ko Ia pē ʻokú Ne ʻafioʻi e ngaahi ʻuhinga kotoa ʻe kei ʻaonga ange ai pē ʻeku ngāue ʻi he kolisí mo Lekisipēkí. Ka naʻá ku ʻi ai ke toutou kole ki he Tamai Hēvaní ʻi he lotu ʻa e meʻa ʻokú Ne fie maʻu ke u tokoniʻi ʻaki e kakai ʻa ia ne maumau ʻenau koloá mo uesia ʻenau moʻuí.

Naʻe hoko ʻeku loto ko ia ke u ʻiloʻi mo fai Hono finangaló ke ne ʻomi ha faingamālie ke u tupulaki fakalaumālie lahi ai.

ʻOku fakatātaaʻi ʻe he meʻa ko ia ne hokó ha founga ʻe taha te tau lava ke fokotuʻu ai ha meʻa te ne taʻofi hono ʻilo e finangalo ʻo e ʻOtuá pe ongoʻi ʻEne ʻofa ʻiate kitautolú: he ʻikai lava ke tau vili taʻeʻunua ke fai ki heʻetau taimí kae hili ko iá ʻoku ʻi ai pē e taimi ʻa e ʻEikí. Naʻá ku pehē kuo feʻunga hoku taimi ngāue tokoni ʻi Lekisipēkí pea naʻá ku fakavavevave ke u hoko atu. ʻOku lava ʻe heʻetau vili taʻeʻunua ke fai ha ngāue ʻo fakatatau ki heʻetau taimi-tēpilé, ʻo ʻai ke hā nenefu Hono finangaló kiate kitautolu.

Ne kole ʻe he Palōfita ko Siosefá ki he ʻEikí ʻi he Fale Fakapōpula ʻi Lipetií ke tauteaʻi ʻa kinautolu ʻoku nau fakatangaʻi e kāingalotu ʻo e Siasí ʻi Mīsulí. Ko ʻene lotú ke fakapapauʻi ʻe tauteaʻi he vave tahá. Ka naʻe tali mai ʻe he ʻEikí “he ʻikai fuoloa taʻu,”4 Te Ne toki fai ʻe ia ha meʻa ki he ngaahi fili ʻo e Siasí. ʻI he veesi 24 mo e 25 ʻo e vahe 121 ʻo e Tokāteline mo e Ngaahi Fuakavá, ʻokú Ne folofola:

ʻOku tau toʻo e meʻa ʻokú ne fai e fakapulikí ʻi he taimi ʻoku tau ongoʻi mo lotu ai, “ke fai pē Ho finangaló” pea “ʻi Hoʻo taimí pē.” ʻOku totonu ke feʻunga pē ʻEne taimí kiate kitautolu he ʻoku tau ʻiloʻi ʻokú Ne fie maʻu pē ʻa e lelei tahá.

Naʻá ne ongoʻi ke tukupā mo fakatapui ʻo hangē ko Melé, ʻo ne pehē, “Vakai, ko e kaunanga au ʻa e ʻEikí.”6 Neongo ʻene lea ʻaki e ngaahi leá ni ʻi hono lotó, ka naʻe ʻikai ke ne ongoʻi ha tali.

Ne fakaafeʻi ia ʻe hono husepānití ke na folau ʻi haʻane meʻa fakapisinisi ki Kalefōnia, koeʻuhí ke fiefia ai. Ne ʻalu hono husepānití ki he fakatahá, kae ʻeveʻeva ia ʻi he matātahi lōngonoa mo fakaʻofoʻofá. Naʻá ne fuʻu fiefia ʻo lotu leʻolahi ai.
