REVEREND JACOB KAUINOHEA NAWELI

REVEREND JACOB KAUINOHEA NAWELI

Reverend Jacob Kauinohea Naweli, affectionately called “Papa Kahu”, served as a minister at the Church of the Living God, otherwise known as Ka Makua Mau Loa, for 32 years. This church is the mother church of six island wide churches. He is survived by his wife, Reverend Cynthia Naweli, daughter Anakonia Matsumoto, and grandchildren Aryana and Malakye Matsumoto as well his family in Christ. His ministry extended beyond the parishioners to the lives of people all over the world. He taught the word of God through heartfelt, Spirit-driven sermons and the example of his lifestyle. Advocating prayer, Papa Kahu’s sensitivity honed in on people’s needs: healing, sustenance, reparation, restoration, the return of soldiers from war; the list was endless. Papa Kahu took concerns of others directly to the throne of grace with constant fervent prayer. Giving at all cost to make someone else comfortable, happy, or at peace was his first nature. Many people witnessed Papa’s love for God’s people as he shared the blessings of those in need with food and finances, fixed and repaired broken hearts and homes, and gave hope and brought worship to feed weary souls. These moments were his heart’s delight. Everything Papa Kahu engaged in was a reflection of his true walk with God. He treasured family, embracing both spiritual and physical family members with warmth and tenderness. Many described him as a gentle and kind shepherd of God’s flock with the most loving and forgiving heart. He worked diligently to pursue God’s choicest for all people and believed “all things are possible” to those who love and obey God. Papa’s ministry touched the entire state of Hawaii when called to conduct blessings. He traveled to many job sites, businesses, government projects and special events to bless endeavors. Papa Kahu welcomed the opportunity to serve in this capacity because he savored the moments when officials acknowledged a dire need for God’s intercession. It pleased him to be a servant for God’s glory. He served God with all his heart, soul and mind right up to the time of his passing. Memorial services for Papa Jacob Naweli will be on September 3 starting at 8:30 a.m., services to begin at 10:45 a.m. at Mililani Memorial Park and Mortuary, Mililani Mauka Chapel. Burial will follow at 2 p.m. at Hawaiian Memorial Park and Cemetery in Kaneohe.
