Sunday School questions: Fehu‘i mo e tali

One of the few memories I have of Sunday school back in the Kingdom is the fehu’i mo e tali that kids learn at Siasi Tonga Tau’ataina. I loved hearing it because the answers were always said back in a tune chant like manner which made it easy for kids to learn off by heart. Here are some of the first basic questions that all the children learn at Sunday School about God. I often out of the blue ask these simple questions of my kids as a reminder of Gods presence and love for them. And always good to practise as much Tongan as possible with them. These are also great basic questions that you can use to build your vocabulary and ask other questions.

Who made you? God.
Who made you? God.
Who is God? Our Father in Heavan.
Who is God? Our Father in Heavan.
Where is God? He is everywhere.
Where is God? He is everywhere.
Does God love you? Yes, he loves all things he created
Does God love you? Yes, he loves all things he created

 

Tongan Shortfilm: Feilaulau (Sacrifice)

This is a heart warming little short film in Tongan about feilaulau which means sacrifice. Produced by Tuʻitahi productions,this has a wonderful message to it.

Listen and watch,  cover the subtitles and test yourself if you can follow the narrative.

I think most people can relate to one of these characters.

1. Nicky Brick: The older hardworking brother.

2. Fasiʻeki: The younger wayward brother.

3. Nicky Brickʻs daughter: A daughter who recognises the sacrifice her father makes.
