Non foratan ekkewe tempel ikenai, tichiken ekiek me chekiochu foratan kokkotun me pisekisek mi nounou a fakkun auchea. Ren testeni ewe puun me sokkopaten pisek ne pii ika pwe ewe neni me och ne kouta ewe imw.

Iotek inai ewe aan sia tongeni tapweno mwirin An memmef non manauach kapachenong pwarata.

Alma a aiti: “Fonoufengenni ren ewe Samon non mettoch meinisin ka fori, me I epwe emwenukeno ren ewe aanen murinno; ennet, nupwen ka kokkor nepwin kopwe kokkor ngeni ewe Samon, pwe I epwe mamasaok non om annut; iwe nupwen ka neno nessor, aura netipom ren kinisou chapur ngeni Kot; ika pwe ka fori ekkei mettoch, en kopwe ekieta non ekkewe ranin soponon” (Alma 37:37).

Aeafengenni ach ekiek, memmef, me mochenin ren Kot non netipekison iotek epwe eu mettoch emon me emon kich usun chok ngasangas me ani mongo.

Nifai a aiti, “Oupwe mongo anemi mongon kamatip won ewe kapasen Kraist; pun nengeni ewe kapasen Kraist epwe apasa ngenikemi mettoch meinisin met oupwe fori.” (2 Nifai 32:3).

Ren ach annea ekkewe pukfel mi murinno, anneani chok esap naf ne angei unusan me anonnonunun afanafanen ewe Samon.

Ewe sakrament a eu angangen pin pwe meinisin chon Mwichefen repwe tufichin ekieki en me manauan, ne pwan ekieki kokkotun pwe repwe fori aier seni, iwe pwan angi ewe pinawa me konik ne achecheminien futuk me chaan Jises Kraist, pwe minen pwarata An Angangen Affor.

Fansoun An afanafan fetan ewe Chon Amanau a aiti fan tong me fatafatochun ekkewe nongonong, tetten me ekkewe foffor pwe sipwe fori an epwe apochokunata manauach. Nesponon an Afanafan won ewe Chuuk, I A era:

“Iei minne, iteiten aramas meinsin mi rong ai kei kapas nge a pwan fori, epwe wewe ngeni chok emon mwan mi mirit, [minne] a aueta imwan won achau.”

“Iwe, a pung ran watte, a pu konik, a enen asepwan o monumoniti ewe imw; nge ese tur, pokiten a kouta won achau.”

Pwi me fefinei kana, esap wor neich sipwe forata imwach, are neni angang, are imweninpin won nongonong mi apwangapwang nofit ren puun ese och are pwal esap wor kokkotun. Sipwe etiwa an ewe Samol pesepes ne feito Ren. Sipwe forata manauach won ewe nongonong mi pochokun.
