Church Helps Tongan Families Rebuild in Wake of Cyclone

"The Saviour’s love and influence are evident throughout the world,” says Elder S. Gifford Nielsen of the Pacific Area Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“And now I have seen and felt that love and influence first-hand on the Tongan island of Ha’apai.”

Elder Nielsen just returned to his home in Auckland, New Zealand after a week-long visit to the Kingdom of Tonga that included a tour of a Latter-day Saint project on the island of Ha’apai.

The project is helping families as they rebuild their homes and community after a cyclone devastated their island earlier this year.
