Mormon church builds new Stake Centre in Tonga

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will construct a new stake centre in Teufaiva, Nuku’alofa, a statement from the church says.

A Latter-day Saint stake centre is headquarters for a stake, which comprises a number of congregations in a geographic location, it says.

“Construction will take approximately 60 weeks and will be completed by local contractors.

“A ground breaking ceremony will be attended by Church, community and government leaders.

The new building is the latest addition in an effort to accommodate expanding Church growth in the Kingdom of Tonga.  There are approximately 30,000 Latter-day Saint congregations worldwide, 165 of which are in Tonga”.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
