Methodist Church elects new president — from Nu'uuli
Reverend Faulalo will take over from the incumbent President, Reverend Apineru Lafai.
The 59-year-old is from the villages of Sale’imoa, Nu’uuli and Manu’a, American Samoa.
He comes to the role with 37 years of service to the church under his belt.
“I am overwhelmed and humbled by this calling,” he told the Samoa Observer.
“For me, I am just a mere servant and I feel inadequate but at the same time I am extremely grateful for the faith placed in me by the church.
“I believe this is my calling, this is the reason I have given up my entire life for it.”
