Robert and Rebecca married in 2003, it was hard at first dealing with each other’s cultural differences. Robert was raised in Samoa and Rebecca in NZ. They argued a lot and before long were ready to call it quits.
One day Roberts Nephew came to stay. They remembered him as a bad boy, but he had turned his life around and they noticed a big difference. He had a peaceful presence - he had become a born again Christian. Rebecca was curious and asked many questions, wondering about what God could do in her life.
In the midst of all the tension Rebecca started looking for a solution beyond themselves. Whenever the name Jesus came up there was a tug of war going on between Robert and Rebecca - she found it hard to explain what she was feeling, and he didn’t want to hear it. Rebecca prayed and asked God for help. After a heated argument one evening Robert and Rebecca realised how desperately they needed a Saviour and decided together to invite Jesus into their lives and immediately the arguments were silenced.
