Welcome Letter - President Tupou

Dear Sister Reid, 

Malo e Lelei! We are happy to learn of your call to serve in the Tonga Nuku'alofa Mission. Thank you for your willingness to serve our Father in Heaven, and we look forward to serving with you...It is a privilege and a blessing to serve a mission for our Father in Heaven. We invite you to come to the mission with full dedication of heart to carry out the work of the Lord

during the time you are here. Your spiritual preparation is the most important part of what you do between now and your arrival in the mission field. We strongly encourage you to start praying and fasting now for those you will be teaching in the mission field. Your spirit and testimony are the most important attributes you can bring to the Tonga Nuku'alofa Mission.We recommend that you obtain and become very familiar with Preach My Gospel, and begin studying the lessons. This will help you acquire a better knowledge of the doctrines and principles of the Gospel. Your time at the Missionary Training Center will also be of great benefit to you in providing a foundation of specific skills you will use in the mission field. Since you will be learning the Tongan language, we ask that you start praying now for the gift of tongues. The Holy Ghost will help you teach the Tongan people in their native tongue if you pray and rely on the spirit.We will meet you at the airport. Be assured you will be well taken care of. We look forward to having you serve in Tonga. May the Lord bless you as you study, pray, and fast.
