Missionary Welcomed Home at Airport with Polynesian Haka Dance (Video)

Sister Tarawhiti, returning from her 18-month in the New Hampshire Manchester Mission, was welcomed home by more than just a poster. Her father along with a few family friends, performed a brief version of the Haka for her as she arrived at the Salt Lake International airport. 

Fox 13 featured a video of the story:

In the original video, posted to Facebook, Sister Tarawhiti's father, Wayne, said, "I'm a proud Dad and its been a while since I've done the haka like that but for my daughter it was all on." He also added, "Welcome home my darling you've returned with honor and the Lord is well pleased."
