Youth Cultural Event

Kyler is 4th from the right, back row
Last weekend was our weekend long Stake Youth Cultural Event. Each ward was assigned a country - our ward was Samoa. Friday - make a display for your country and then food from your country for everyone to taste. I think our food was a hit - we had a huge line at our table. We made poni popo - homemade rolls with a coconut custard poured over top and sapa suey - long rice, corned beef and cabbage all mixed together. And then there was a dance afterward. Saturday everyone played a game from their country and then Saturday night each ward performed a 10 minute dance from their country. It was way good, and I would say our ward was the best but that would just make me sound prejudice. Sunday all the youth drove up to Pulehu (the first church building built in Hawaii - first baptism held near there as well) for a Sacrament/Fast and Testimony meeting - it is a very spiritual place. This is a picture of the young men before driving up to Pulehu.


  1. What a great picture of the boys! Wish we could have seen all of the great dancing. I know the girls love having you as their leader. Good job girlfriend!

  2. Hi Loraine-I got a lot of the Samoan dance on video too. Here is the link: There is sound too.
