VAVA'U, TONGA - APRIL 19: Elder Liki from Utah, visits and reads religious writings to villagers in Ha'alaufuli Village on April 19, 2007 in the Vava'u island group of Tonga. These visits are part of his two-year proselytizing and missionary work in Tonga for the Mormon Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Mormon Church has been in Tonga for over hundred years, arriving when many Christian missionaries came to Tonga to convert the population to Christianity. Tonga is one of the last surviving monarchies in the Pacific islands, however there has been a recent push towards democratic reform, challenging the people of Tonga to maintain their cultural heritage while conforming to modern day capitalism.
