Saints of Tonga : A Century of Island Faith
BYU Religious Studies Center and Deseret Book
"Tonga has by far the highest percentage of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of any country in the world. How did this come to be? At first, missionary work in Tonga appeared to be a failure. Then, after closing the mission for a decade, the Church returned and began harvesting the fruits from the seeds that had been planted earlier amid tremendous opposition. The truths of the gospel resonated with the Tongan people, who exhibited incredible faith and sacrifice. The Church grew to be a strong influence in the Kingdom of Tonga and with the people of the country." [Publisher]
