REV. JOHN KEKIPI MAIA.
On Thursday the 13th of this month of April, held was a service to commemorate the birthday of Rev. John Kekipi K. Maia, the replacement for his father who is at rest, Rev. Kekipi Maia, and his elder brother who is at rest, John E. K. Maia, at the Christian Science [Hoomana Naauao] church.
He has been sojourning in this world for 43 years, and has spent three years as the kahu of Ke Alaula o ka Malamalama and president of the Christian Science of Hawaii began by his deceased father, Rev. John Kekipi Maia.
From the time he has taken this position of his father until today, there has been no Sunday that he was not seen at the pulpit of Ke Alaula o ka Malamalama.
The brethren came together at this gathering, and the news of the day was heard by those who came, with great joy in the good word of God.
Praised be God of the heavens and earth for his aloha for us.
