The following clips was taken from the Youth Rally that was held in Redwood City, California. Reverend Tomasi Vi was the guest speaker of the day.
Glad to post this video in tribute to the late Reverend Tomasi Vi, the founder of the First Tongan Assembly of God, San Carlos, California. Even though Rev. Tomasi Vi has passed on to meet the Almighty God in Heaven, his teachings, integrity and attributes remained a strong pillar stone to us friends and believers who were under his guidance.
PASTOR TOMASI VI
I have known Pastor Tomasi Vi since the 80's not only as a blood relative, but I highly respected him as one of my spiritual mentor. As a Christian myself, it is indeed a privilege and pleasure to write this testimonial about this very great man of God who preferred to call himself a Servant of the Almighty One.
Pastor Tomasi Vi was a very dedicated Christian who committed to excellence in life and making a positive difference for others. His level of commitment and creativity are beyond measure. He genuinely cared about people, the quality of his work and the ability to get things done in a team manner. He had the ability to bring about unity where there was division among people and he did so in a way that did not threaten the inward man.
Pastor Tomasi Vi's historic legacy was all about building community and team spirit and helping people to be the best that they can be. I was under his pastoral leadership for several years, and I watched him over time transformed the attitudes of people with lost causes , as well as mine, into seeing even a bigger picture in our daily life that our daily responsibilities are instrumental and a stepping stone to the futuristic Promised Infinite Life awaiting us. He changed our paradigm! He made us all realize that we werent just doing things in life for the sake of it but, we could make a huge difference in the businesses and lives of others when we set good examples for others to see. Tomasi had an amazing ability to take the every day and make it more purposeful. His enthusiasm and passion for caring and helping others to be their best is genuine, sincere and rare in our world.
He was a committed man of excellence with a deep level of integrity, humility, enthusiasm, passion and spirit who enriches others lives for the better. His creative spirit and passion for getting things right were a big benefit to all who knew him. Pastor Tomasi Vi passed on and enjoyed the Divine and Triumphantly Joyful Company of our Heavenly Father, but his legacy continues on throughout the Church and good friends he left behind.
He is survived by his wife, Supiesi Vi and three children (Charlotte, Isaiah, Tom Jr) and Grand kids, all residing in Palo Alto, California.
Tomasi's church is still active and attract many new believers and Rev. Vaka Taimani is the senior pastor at present who resembles and promotes the same mission and anticipation as his former colleague.
Thank you Lord for such a legacy that still remains untarnished and memorable in our lives.
