Elder Argyle Update 28 Dec 2006
Elder Argyle called home for Christmas saying that he loves Tonga. He is curently in Ha'apai on the island of Koa I believe. When I could not find the island on the map he said he served in Muitoa and Fakakakai. I found these villages but the map said the island is Ha'ano. He is doing well and loves his bungalow. He states the sunsets are beautiful. They have been very successful teaching the gospel. They had five baptisms the week before. As we visited I could here voices when asked who it was he said it was the children grabing the fish out of the nets that just came in. He loves the people and they love him.

(Mom) Pam Argyle.

Thank you Sis. Argyle for the update.

Updates 02 Apr 2006
I have contacted the mothers of our missionaries currently serving in Tonga to give us a brief update on their son’s .

Sis. Featherstone said:

“The news we get from him is good. He is really enjoying his mission, and
is having good success as he teaches the gospel. He is serving right by the
mission office right now and enjoying that. He hopes to be able to go back out
to one of the smaller islands and serve and get to know more of the great people
of the Tongan islands. The language is finally good, he loves attending the temple,
and serving his Heavenly Father there in Tonga. He's been there 14 months
already, time is going quickly, but he is very happy and loves his mission.”

Sister Hernandez added:

“Elder Hernandez (Eleta Helani) is loving the MTC. He can now pray in Tongan
and do a simple testimony in Tongan. He almost has the First vision memorized.
He loves singing in Tongan. He is very excited about his mission.”

And finally Sister June Mathews closed with:

“Elder Mathews is on the island of Nomuku, and we haven't heard from him by
email since mid-February, and my snail mail since January. When we hear
something, we will send it to the website. I wanted to send a photo of him
as soon as I get one. Most of the photos I have are with people who were
baptized in December.”

Thank you so much Sisters for the input about your sons, our missionaries. I’m sure all of us here in this website can relate to the feeling we had gotten from a letter from home. Please feel free to post pictures of your missionaries, some of us like myself need to be reminded of the blessings.

Return with Honor 14 Jan 2003
Although this alumnus is not included in this website, I wish to make mention of him here. Elder Aulola Tonga, who served in Tonga between 1982-84, was called back home to our Heavenly Father yesterday (13 Jan 2003). He is married to Sokopeti Po'oi, and has four little children between the ages of 6 to 11. The widow and children continue to reside in Laie, Hawaii. Aulola is a great example of Christlike character and one whom the alumni would be very proud to count as one of their own. Those of you who know or remember Elder Tonga and wish to know more info, please don't hesitate to e-mail me.

Tongan Mission Reunion 01 Apr 2002
Just attended the mission reunion held in Salt Lake City at the newly dedicated Tongan Stake Center. Most of the missionaries malolo in attendance were form Shumway's presidency and previous all the way to 1940. Elders Johnsen, Kauvaka and myself were the only ones there from Presidents Kongaika and Uasila'a. There were some as well from Kivalu, Malupo, and Banks. Faivaola (Shumway) spoke to us, Ko e malanga malie. It was a great experience. The dance will be held Firday, April 5th, at the Liberty Wells Center at 400 East and 700 South in Salt Lake City. 'Ofa pe te tau fe'iloaki ai. Malo aupito ko ho'omou ngaue lahi pea mo lelei 'i he mala'e 'o e ngaue fakafaifekau 'i he Misiona Tonga! Tu'a 'ofa atu.

Other Side of Heaven 04 Dec 2001
I watched the movie the "Other Side of Heaven" base on the book "In the Eye of the Storm", by John Groberg. This movie is about Elder Kolipoki's missionary experiences in Tonga. I think the movie is being release nation wide in January 2002. If you have a chance to see this movie, it is the best missionary movie I have ever seen.

Mission Presidents 15 Aug 2001
Nearly all mission presidents are listed up to Pres. Butler, in the book, "Unto the Islands of the Sea" by R. Lanier Bristch. I have a copy of thhis book and can research the info once again if you are interested.

Pres. Groberg served as mission president from 1966-1969, as per his most recent book, "The Fire of Faith."

Thanks for the great job of keeping this site updated. I know it must be demanding.
