No doubt the bells will toll as a result of the tsunami. Shown is the Free Wesleyan Church of Tonga in Glendenning, Western Sydney.
The Pacific Island communities of Tongans and Samoans are numerous and from Australia they financially and otherwise support their extended families back in the islands.
This grand church was opened last year by King George Tupou V of Tonga amid traditional colour. He was accompanied by Queen Mother Halaevalu Mata'aho and younger bro crown Prince Tupouto'a Lavaka. (SMH Oct 08)
