Account of LDS Church leader John H. Goberg's Mission to Tonga when he was a young man back in the 1950's. Classic fish-out-of-water story filled with many humorous culture-shock anecdotes. More importantly though, I was utterly amazed and awed by his amazing experiences. He nearly died several times, always apparently miraculously preserved. He brought a boy back to life afer falling out of a tree, nearly starved to death, nearly drowned, and faced innumerable other obstacles as he went about his missionary duties. But not only did he survive, but he had many impressive accomplishments, establishing and running schools, and serving as a District President overseeing several LDS congregations. His amazing determination, work ethic, faith, and success in the face of incredible obstacles is an inspiration to me.
