2023 World Fireknife Championship in La’ie, HI

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

This was the verse that was imprinted in my heart these last two weeks sharing it with my Mauga Mu kids to remind them that our own strength can only get us so far, we have to purely rely on the strength of the Lord to get us to where our gifts are glorifying him.

Congratulations to all the warriors who competed at the 30th WFC and Malo fa’afetai for their bravery, i always say the bravery starts when you sign your name up to compete. The amount of talent that was shown was such a blessing to witness and be a part of. Thank you for being such an inspiration, your tenacity, perseverance, courage, hard work, commitment and the love for Ailao has gotten you where you are at today. Big huge thank you to my Oloa Aiga/team that has been a constant help throughout Mauga Mu’s Fireknife season, huge shout out especially to our dad Isitolo Oloa who is the driving force to getting Our students where they need to be thank you so much dad, Gods blessing be upon you abundantly 🥰🙏🏽 Mikaele Oloa, Mase Fiaavae & Nanz Piotaufinu'u awesome job getting your warriors ready for 2023 WFC 🔥🔥🔥

There was so many amazing pictures to post but this one truly captured the essence of Mauga Mu/Samoan Culture, we are not Fire led we are spiritually led. Prayer is an essential part of our journey we know we can’t do it alone 🥹🥹

We are so grateful to all our Mauga Mu warriors we understand it’s never easy for you all, but we believe In you so much and know there is a great future for you all, May God continue to be a light in your path and get you further than you could ever imagine. 🙏🏽🙏🏽
