LDS PNG missionary recovering from road accident

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 09/01/2020

A young Tongan missionary is currently recovering at New Zealand hospital following a road accident in Papua New Guinea.

The victim is currently serving a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints in Papua New Guinea when the accident happened last week and was then sent to New Zealand for treatment.

A reliable source told Radio Tonga news the person has now been released with honor, although he had a few months left on the mission.

Male missionaries of the church usually serve for two years but because of the critical condition he is in, his mission president has therefore advised he return home to Tonga after his medical treatment.

Meanwhile, police in Papua New Guinea are investigating the cause of the accident.
