Fakamo’oni ia he lotu na’a ne ako ki he kau Tisaipale ko e Taha Tolu Tapu ‘oku ‘afio ‘i Hevani pea ko e Tamai ia ‘a e kau Kalisitiane kotoa pe. Koia ai kapau ko Tonga ko e fonua Kalisitiane pea ko e koloa ia ‘a e Taha Tolu Tapu ta ‘oku ‘i ai e totonu ia ‘a e Kalisitiane Tonga kotoa ki he kelekele ‘o Tonga he ko e koloa ia ‘enau Tamai. Ko e ‘uhinga ia ‘oku tonu ai ke fakafoki e kelekele ki he Pule’anga kapau ko e pule’anga Kalisitiane he ko e kakai Tonga Kalisitiane fakalukufua ia. Koia ai kau ta’e Kalisitiane mou feinga leva ke mou Kalisitiane ke mou lave he monu’ia ‘o e kau Kalisitiane Tonga mei he ‘enau Tamai (Taha Tolu Tapu).

Ko e fehu’i leva, “Ka kohai leva ‘oku ne ma’u e kelekele?” Ko e tali leva kiai, “Ko e kakai Kalisitiane Tonga fakalukufua”. Ko e fakamo’oni ‘eni ki ai, ko e taimi pe he ‘ikai ke totongi ai ‘e he kau ma’u kelekele ‘enau lisi, ko ‘ene ala atu ia e fakafofonga kelekele ‘o e kakai, (pule’anga) ‘o fakafoki mai e kelekele, ke lisi ia ki ha taha tene lava ‘o totongi e tukuhau ke ‘aonga ki he kakai fakalukufua. ‘Oku ou fie fakamahino atu kainga Tonga, ko e Tukuhau, kuo ‘osi fakamo’oni’i fakamamani lahi ko e ma’u’anga pa’anga lelei taha ia pea pau ki he langa fakalakalaka faka’ikonomika ‘a e ngaahi fonua kotoa ‘oku pule’i fakatemokalati.

Kaikehe ko e taha ia e ngaahi malohinga e founga pule fakatemokalati, “ko e tatau ‘a e totonu ‘ae tokotaha kotoa ki he koloa ‘a e fonua ‘oku nofo ai” pe ko hono fakalea ke mahino ange ‘oku ‘ikai ke toe ‘i ai ha fa’ahinga fakangatangata ‘ihe anga e nofo - tu’a pe hou’eiki, tu’umalie pe tu’utamaki, ma’olunga pe ma’ulalo, tangata pe ko e fefine, Kalisitiane pe ta’e Kalisitiane, Faifekau pe ta’e Faifekau, ‘Ea (foha lahi) pe ta’e ‘Ea (‘ikai ko ha foha lahi), mo e ha fua.
