Fale'aka's Narrative Writing

One evening at Tamaki River, some men went out fishing. The water was not calm but they thought they might have a good catch.  

Not long, the wind started to get stronger and water was becoming rough.  They were scared and yelled at each other to go back.  The motor stopped.  John who was steering the boat did not know what was happening.
Suddenly they noticed a figure on the water.  “It’s a ghost”, they shouted. They started to paddle with their hands.  The figure came closer to the and they noticed that it was Jesus.  
“It’s Jesus”, John shouted.  He was excited and jumped to run to Him.  He forgot that he can’t walk on water.  
“Help”, he screamed.  ‘Help me, Jesus”.
Jesus came and grabbed his hand and took him to the boat.

The sea was calm and wind died down.  Our motor worked and we let out our nets and got a lot of fish.
Thank you Jesus.

Rosrine's Narrative Writing

Patches of Grey clouds painted along the sky, our scarfs flying from side to side, like trapped birds.

The Galileans & I, paddled as fast as we could to reach the Wall of Prayers. We were planning to go there several times, and never had the opportunity to do it.   THUD! THUD! we all panicked, the waves were getting bigger and our boat was rocking from side to side, A storm was heading our way. “Paddle faster”, I yelled, as if we were having a race with the waves.

“Are we near”, a men spoke. “Not even close”, a unknown man exclaimed. I gave that unknown man a vexatious face, and carried on paddling. While we were struggling to move the boat, a blinding light shone, onto our faces, like we in a football game. “What is that”, I said, while putting on a frightened face. “I am here to help you”, the bright light spoke.

The bright light, was fading and we could finally saw his face. Hair long enough to touch it’s shoulders, yellow scarf. We couldn’t believe our eyes. “It’s Jesus”, we shouted. Mouths dripping with amazement. “Be calm, it is I,” said Jesus. I will take you, to the Wall of Prayers. Jesus ordered the wind and the sea was calm.

An hour passed, and we finally reached our destination “Thank You, Jesus”, we all spoke at once.
