S. P. Ahiona, 1869.

A CHINESE MISSIONARY.—It is not generally known that we have amongst us a Chinaman, a professed convert to the Protestant religion, who goes about among  his countrymen on the plantations and elsewhere, preaching and teaching his new-found faith. He intends, as we learn, to make the tour of Oahu, as he ha recently don on Hawaii, visiting in succession the different plantations where Chinamen are employed, exhorting and advising. His name is S. P. Ahiong. It is to be hoped that his well-meant endeavors will go far to enlighten his countrymen. His sermon  at the Bethel Church last Sabbath evening was largely attended.

[Ahiona writes in the Kuokoa of his travels across Maui, Hawaii, Oahu and Kauai in 1868 and 1869. See more on S. P. Aheong in the Hawaiian Journal of History.]
