Tongan Children Celebrate President Russell M. Nelson's 95th Birthday

Students and teachers from Koulo Middle School on the Tongan island of Ha'apai celebrated President Russell M. Nelson's 95th birthday yesterday.


According to school principal Nua Hoeft, "We are one of the middle schools in the Pacific in the Kingdom of Tonga but in a remote island, Ha’apai. Our teachers and students sustain and love the Prophet very much even though we are in this small island in the isles of the sea. We enjoy listening to him and reading his messages."

"This meant so much for us to be part of this special and historical event," she added.
