O le Lumanai o malaga Lee

Le toatele o outou iloa au e se rapper ma tagata faʻasaga, ae o le upu moni o, i loto ou lava a failauga.

Mo le umi sa ou faia o musika, loʻu faanaunauga sili ua e folafola atu le Talalelei ma talai atu le agalelei ma le mamalu o Iesu Keriso. O le alofa tunoa o le Atua ua ou maua ai le avanoa e faaaoga ai musika e faia lena mea i se tulaga lautele. Ou alofa uma e lua o le i ai ma ou taumafai e faia ma le lelei atoatoa. I le aluga o tausaga, Ou lagonaina le valaauina aʻu e le Atua ma faaauupegaina te au le na o le faia o musika, ae foi e talai ma tusi.

O le mafuaaga lena e gata ai le tausaga sa ou tusia O Le Soifuaga Lelei, se tusi dives loloto i le savali i tua o loʻu faamaumauga o le igoa lava lea e tasi. E foi pe aisea na ou faasilasila pa'ū mulimuli o le a ou le malaga lava i le tele e ou i ai. Ou te manao e aoao pe faapefea ona avea ma a faifeau faamaoni, ma e mafai ona na tupu moni lava i le tulaga o se ekalesia i le lotoifale. O lea sa ou te faia o le taimi e faaalu i le aoaoina mai faifeau i le Atua i laʻu ekalesia i Washington, DC. Alii naunau, e pei ona ou auauna atu i le aufaigaluega i laʻu ekalesia, Le a ou mafai foi ona e atiina ae le sili atu o mea faigaluega e tatau ona ou auauna atu i se taimi umi i le auaunaga i le lotoifale.

Ou te faatuatuaina le Atua o loo i luma atu aso lelei, ma e le popole - o le a outou faalogo sili tele mai ia te aʻu, mai faiga tusitusia i musika i le aoao atu ma talai atu. Ou te faafetai mo lou lagolago uma i le ala, ma ou te valaaulia outou e faatasi mai ia te au i luga o le auala i luma.

      No he’s not stepping away from music, he’s devoting more of his time to his pastoral studies and commitment to his local church

    • Alextali

      At first I believed he was retiring. Now every time I listen to his old songs, I’m likehe’s coming back, he’s way too good not too. Still one of my favorite artists.

    Awesome it is great to see a young person who is willing to pursue god to the point of stepping down from a career in music as his main focus to putting gods word as a preacher and pastor first. You were already doing that with your music you know, now its a musicless song.

  2. Dervanie Charlestali

    Im proud of Trip,for a young person he really gets God.He gets the true meaning for living for God.Keep up the good work TRIP ;)

    Ei malaga,

    Who do you listen to for sermons? I see Piper’s work interwoven in Reach’s work, what other kind of figures do you listen to for inspiration/enlightenment on scripture?

    Fa'afetai.

    you encouragement makes me feel good in making decision anytime i reflect of some of your music. more grace!

    Looking forward to what the Lord will continue to do in and through you, bro. Excellent.

    Definitely understand, the calling of a shepherd is first to his immediate flock. We’re having a conference at my church New Bethel Church in Kansas City, Kansas especially dedicated to up and coming pastors. My pastor Suff. Bishop A. Glenn Brady is an excellent mentor and is passionate about pushing people into the abundance of God’s blessings for their lives. You should look him up on FB!

  7. Angela A. Spencer-Mukestali

    Just remember that preaching is communicating the gospel, however you do that best. I have always found your music to be wonderful sermons. A lot of times we think that a ‘callmeans we have to do the standard preacher role, when what He is equipping us for is what our hands find to do.

    Just a thought.
    My the Lord bless and keep you.

  8. footeustali

    This really didn’t surprise me. I can see that’s where that dude’s heart is calling. He staying true to it and I pray for God’s best for him. And that he stays humble. It’s funny that I’m wearing hisCan I brag on my Lord?” wristband. That’s who I know will get the glory and for that I’m all with it. Let’s GO!!!!!

  9. Paul Hornetali

    God bless you brother as you go after this endeavor. I have enjoyed your music and your theology is tight. I hope the Lord continues to be glorified through your work.

    I am going the distance with you Trip.
    Eperu 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [tatou] faʻatuatua; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

  12. Tinatali

    With you all the way trip! Luv hearing you from your music to your book and your sermons. May our Good Lord continue to bless you and your family.

    Ur music is just too good for you to put away! Your music is your sermons…..it touches alot of souls even to the point that you are unaware. It may not be reflected in album sales, Grammys, sold out shows but know that its to His glory. Like you said don’t look for that boxed up comfortable Jesus, it doesn’t exist. I will say this if the conviction or love of music digs into your soul enough, I know you will be back! Think about the missionaries who are tortured and kill in this day and age for Christ…..I know many of them thought of returning to their local churches where there is comfort! They are the brave soldiers…..warriors….i admire them more than any othercliquein Christ….They are trulyunashamed”!
