Samuela Manoa and Kimo Pelio were the first missionaries sent to Samoa from Hawaii by Walter Murray Gibson. They served for almost fifteen years, until Pelio's death, when Manoa wrote to Hawaii for help. Joseph and Flora Dean were sent to assist them and in 1888 and the Samoan Mission was officially organized.
A new meetinghouse was completed on Aunuu.
Mission home located at Pasega, Apia, Upolu, Samoa.
