Interesting Facts About Samoa

Samoa flagBackground: New Zealand occupied the German protectorate of Western Samoa at the outbreak of World War I in 1914. It continued to administer the islands as a mandate and then as a trust territory until 1962, when the islands became the first Polynesian nation to reestablish independence in the 20th century. The country dropped the “Western” from its name in 1997.

Government Type: parliamentary democracy

Population: 195,476 (July 2013 est.)
Note: prior estimates used official net migration data by sex, but a highly unusual pattern for 1993 lead to a significant imbalance in the sex ratios (more men and fewer women) and a seeming reduction in the female population; the revised total was calculated using a 1993 number that was an average of the 1992 and 1994 migration figures

Ethnic Groups: Samoan 92.6%, Euronesians (persons of European and Polynesian blood) 7%, Europeans 0.4% (2001 census)

    Hello. I wish to know more about the move of God in Western Samoa. What is He saying, the direction He is taking the people in and what are their needs in prayer. I feel a wave of intercession building for the country, and want to pray effectively in unity with my brothers and sisters in Christ. Love and blessings from Jacqueline Taylor, Aglow Bunbury, Western Australia

    Dear Jacqueline,
    I heard from very reliable sources: God used a 20+ year old daughter of a Pastor (Congregational Christian Church affiliation), during Easter, this year 2016, and spoke to the Nation of Samoa to “repent & come to Him, to seek reconciliation, ONLY THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. As she spoke to the people and the media, blood dripped on her forehead, left & right palms & her side, left & right feet, (corresponding with exactly the same spots where Jesus was physically wounded, as He was on the Cross. Yeah. Today, Subday, 24th April, 2016, the Weatherman said, a hurricane starts blowing today. We are praying, that our almighty God, who’s BIGGER thank any natural phenomena, will re-direct those strong winds to the pit. You may Stand-in-the-Gap with us Sister, for this Nation of Samoa. They are included in Graham Cooke’s Nov 2014 Prophetic Word for NZ (during Aglow International New Zealand 40th Birthday Conference).
