On January 15th Tonga yet again survived a historic volcanic eruption, however with much devastation. The outlying islands of Nomuka, Tungua, and Fonoifua experienced much loss and destruction following the deadly eruption and subsequent tsunami. Thick ash covered the many damaged buildings as well as the interior sections of mangled structures. As part of the Christian family, we are faithfully called to help. This year, along with The Long Journey mission project, our Desert Southwest Conference will collect monetary donations to assist in relief efforts.
