Heber McKay and W.O.Facer 12 Sep 2011
Heber McKay is my grandfather. He and W.O. Facer were sent from Samoa to re-open Tonga to missionary work in 1907. I am trying to find any information that I can about his mission. I have been told that there is a picture of my grandfather and his companions that hangs in the Tongan Temple. Is this true?
I would to have any information that anyone knows of.

Bula from Fiji,

I'm trying to locate a friend and would appreciate your assistance.

His name is William Peni Cornett and the last I heard of him, he was serving his mission in Niue. I think he's in the States now but am not sure.

If you know Peni or know anyone who does, would appreciate it if you could drop me a line.

Looking for a missionary. 17 Feb 2006
We had a young man from the Tongan Islands serve here (Alamosa Stake) about five years ago. I thought he was such a special young man and he had such a special spirit and I loved him like a son (he told me I was his Colorado mom). I heard from him twice after he went back and never heard anything more. I have tried very hard to find him and have been unable to. Can anybody out there help me? I think about him often and would love to get in touch with him again. His name is Sateki Havili and he lived in Pangain, Ha'spai, Tonga. I would appreciate any information at all. Thank you.

traveling to Tonga 16 Feb 2006
Sister Ellesworth,

I am a return missionary from Tonga from 1984-86. My mother and sister came to pick me up from my mission - granted it has been 20 years ago, and I am sure a few things have changed, but here is part of what they expereinced:

Both brought the maximum amount of luggage allowed - one suitcase for clothing, the other full of things to give away (including candy). The bags with their clothing were lost, and never returned. But the others with those things to give away arrived safely. Unfortunately, they had no changes of clothes in their carry-on's - something I would strongly suggest.

At the time, flights leaving the country only flew about twice a week. Since we had about 4 days before we could leave - we took advantage of this time and took a little trip to the Vava'u islands - somewhere I was not able to serve, but is VERY beautiful.

I also had some investigators invite us all for a meal. They were very poor, but brought out their very best to offer us. It was humbling and wonderful.

Somethings to remember about the Tongan people - according to them, all Americans are rich, which comparitively we are, weather we think so or not. In Tonga, it is not considered rude to ask nfor something - only rude to refuse to give. So be prepared to give away plenty. If there is something (anything) which you absolutely feel you cannot do without - leave it at home. If you have something you would like to give (food, clothing, gifts, etc...) they will appriciate it all.

Also - be sure to make time for a trip to the temple - it is the most beautiful building in the country. My mother and I went through session in Tongan - only her 2nd time in the temple. she loved it.

The Tongans are wonderful people - there is a reason the place is called "The Friendly Islands." I am certain you will enjoy the trip.

If I can answer any other questions for you - please feel free to contact me at

Ofa 'atu

trip to Tonga 15 Feb 2006
I think the best thing is to email the Mission Pres (Pres Moleni) and ask him what is his guidelines of picking up missionaries. He'll let you know plus he can probably have you guys stay at the mission home while visiting Tonga. If I were you that's what I'll do also if you can, you might check the rate of fare right now for next year, cuz the sooner you booked and paid for it the cheaper it is. Anyways, that's my suggestion for you.... Good Luck !!

'ofa atu,

Info for my parents- just called 02 Jan 2006
Dear Sir:

My parents, Gary & Peggy Scrimsher from the Pasco Washington Stake, have just received a call to serve in the Nuku'alofa Tonga Mission as CES missionaries. They will report to the Provo MTC on ~ March 6th, and be in Tonga later that month.

They have asked me to help find out some more about Tonga, beyond what I have found in my World Book Encyclopedia and in the current LDS church almanac.

Some general questions:

Will their Cingular based calling plans and cell phones work in Tonga? ( I say no.)

What is a major bank they could use for this banking needs?

What long distance carriers have good US to Tonga calling plans?

Who is the current Mission president and his email address or other ways to reach him or his staff?

I served in the New Zealand Christchurch mission from 1979 to 81 under Phillip Sontagg, so I know a bit about the Polynesian culture, etc.

Obviously I am a bit jealous - when my wife and I get empty nested in ~ 14 more years we plan to submit our papers and serve together.

Thanks for your time.
