It was in the early days in Fiji, when John Starhurst arose in the mission house at Rewa Village and announced his intention of carrying the gospel throughout all Viti Levu.
It was at this juncture that John Starhurst proclaimed that he would carry the Gospel from coast to coast of the Great Land, and that he would begin by penetrating the mountain fastnesses of the headwaters of the Rewa River.
The King of Rewa warned him that the mountain dwellers would surely kai-kai him--kai-kai meaning "to eat"--and that he, the King of Rewa, having become Lotu, would be put to the necessity of going to war with the mountain dwellers.
Later in the day a deputation of Rewa chiefs waited upon John Starhurst.
John Starhurst journeyed up the sluggish Rewa in one of Ra Vatu's canoes.
High up the Rewa, at the village of a chief, Mongondro by name, John Starhurst rested at the end of the second day of the journey.
The grass houses clung to the steep mountain side or overhung the rushing Rewa. On either side towered a mighty precipice.
MY people do not swim in companies, with their mouths out of the water, as Rewa
does; nor do they constantly rise to the surface of the water, and turn over on their sides, like Mohoo and little Chapta; nor do they gather in shoals after flood, like Batchua and Chilwa."
