This year our keiki kahu was/is Pōmai, a 5th grader in Mrs. Ah Hee’s class. A while back she was asked to share what it’s like to be a keiki kahu, and here is what she said.
“To me being keiki kahu is a great responsibility, but I know that God is always with me. I have a feeling that God is putting me on a path and He wants me to follow Him. I want to share God’s love with everyone in elementary too. He’s giving me an opportunity. God’s leading me in a path he chose only for me. I’ve come closer to God through this experience and God has been changing me so much. I have all the pleasure of serving God/Jesus through being keiki kahu. Being keiki kahu gives me a chance to reach out to other people in ways I wasn’t able to do before. I am here to worship God and give Him all the glory, honor, and praise!”
That is some great mana’o, Pōmai! We sure are going to miss you as our keiki kahu, but Middle School will be receiving a great leader for Jesus!
