Evanelia Tahiti is organized to assist the people of French Polynesia in the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through education.
Every level and type of education may be in view, from the kitchen table or Sunday school class to the highest levels of university training.
Through education we will be a vessel of God’s blessing for this tiny, geographically large nation.
Please pray for the family of Tevai Torohia, who passed away after a tragic motorcycle accident this past Saturday, November 6th. His music video below shows his devotion to his wife, now widow, who is seven months pregnant. He was truly a bright person in...

God made our hands to love and serve, but touch the heart can only words!I wrote that little ditty years ago to keep me grounded to the importance of bringing glory to God in whatever I say and wherever I might be! Our words can build up or break down. Just look at...

Hard for us to understand.
Out of time, beyond the sun,
All are one in Paradise
Got out of town on a boat goin’ to Southern islands
Sailing a reach before a followin’ sea
She was makin’ for the trades on the outside
And the downhill run to Papeete.
But above all, Tahiti is Polynesian. Without these remarkable people the island would be nothing. With them, it is a carnival. They are generous, courageous, and comic.
Vast, insignificant Polynesia, ruled badly by many differ nations, victimized by all kinds of robbers. It is not rich; its people seem to have few causes to be happy. It is a backwash in the world’s eddies, yet these trivial islands have imposed on history the most lasting vision of the earthly paradise.
Told by the ministers to close their eyes and pray, the Tahitians did. When they heard the ministers say, “Amen, peace be with you,” they opened their eyes and saw their world had been stolen from them.
