Richardson points out, though, that the conversions of two young men make little impact on the village as a whole. However, Hato, an elder in the village, makes a very public acceptance of God's peace child. Hato proclaims that the news of the gospel causes his liver to tremble, signifying his desire to make a decision.

Richardson describes the tradition of a peace child in the Sawi culture as "a time bomb through the ages."
