Tribute to the Pao’o Family:
First a tribute to you Henry. In the 9 years I’ve pastored Connect I have so appreciated your faithful commitment to our music ministry; both the seen and the unseen. You would set up the sound 2 hours early on a Thursday night and a Sunday morning to make sure everything flowed well technically for everyone else. Thank you. As Connect’s Worship Ministry leader for the past few years I have appreciated your encouragement of our youth and your musical skills and talents when it comes to appropriate keys, composition, and mix. Your skill set will be missed immensely.
Thank you Henry for your respect and honouring of people who have passed away. I could always rely on you to manage the sound desk for funerals. I am incredibly pleased that you are still willing to do this for us.
Personally Henry, I have loved your smiles and friendly relationships with Connect folk. This world needs love, compassion, joy and hope and you have lots to give.
Malina, thank you for being such a wonderful mum. I know it hasn’t always been easy trying to parent 5 children whilst holding down a full-time job, but you have done it so well. Connect has been your church home for your entire life (Malina’s mum, Daphne Fyfe, was here from the beginning).
Tyla, you have grown into a beautiful young woman. God bless you into whatever career He is guiding you into. Jayda, Kiana and Natonga – we have loved your dancing and singing. Don’t stop. You are all naturals. Kiana and Natonga, we will miss your participation in our children’s activities on ZOOM. Isaiah, we can see you are much loved by all your family.
Now it’s time for you to move to the church of Henry’s brothers and sisters. We know this has been a decision 2 years in the making. May God continue to bless you as a family, and may you know that you are always part of Connect 😊❤
