Tonga

Zach had the opportunity to go with a group of friends to Tonga and do some dental work on the people there. I loved the pictures and the stories about Tonga so I thought I would post a few.
On their way

This was the clinic they worked in. It's owned by the church ...almost half the population of Tonga is LDS!

A few of the patients


All the husbands insisted that they were going to Tonga to work, not play. The fact that it was a tropical island was just coincidence. Yah, right...
...I'm only joking. You guys deserved a little R&R.



Tonga still has a King; you can see his house in the background. The king lends the people the land they farm on.

I thought it was funny this guy was just riding down the road on the hood of the car. Apparently there were people in the trunk too.

Layover in Figi

All the cute kiddos waiting for their Dads



We missed our Dad! Next time we won't let you go unless we get to come too!

Yes he does. Quit moaning and groaning and come to SF. I know it seems scary to leave the bubble that is Idaho Falls, but I have complete confidence in you.

Michelle said...

True that. I am SO going next time too. Party in Tonga!

I would be a little bit scared- that part is true. But the real reason I can't leave my bubble is MONEY. Could we please vote in a president that will drill for oil in the US? (That's about as far as my political knowledge goes. I just know that Barack would be a horrible choice. So I've been told. I think that's what I heard.?)

That is so cool that Zach had that opportunity! I have always wanted to do something like that but I don't have any talents or services to offer! ha! ha!

Rebecca, it's been a month. I'm sure SOMETHING has happened in the last 30 days that you could blog about...

Mindy and Roudy said...

Don't make me leave a new comment every day until you do a new post. I'll do it...

Mindy and Roudy said...

You are going to make me do it, aren't you?
