At this time, Pu Pena was watching over this island. Pu Teukumarae was not yet chief. 1 The year was 1916; on May 16, a ship came. It was the Southern Cross.

The bishop came on it. John Wood. He asked Pu Raropuko and Pu Teukumarae, "Is it all right to establish the [Christian system of] prayer on this island?"

Pu Teukumarae [and] Pu Raropuko told him, "Fine." The bishop left on this island three missionaries: John Selwyn Kavaruo, Robert Pakiraki, [and] Shadrack Ikarima, an unmarried youth. The ship returned to Tikopia. The church was established on this island.

The ship returned on June 1. When it came then, Pu Raropuko had died. Bishop Wood asked these three catechists, when Pu Raropuko got sick, did they go to him?
