Aulola Tonga will be going on a church mission next year

About going on a 2-year church mission starting next year, Aulola Tonga (a member of the Morman church) said:
“This is something I really want to do. I want to live on my own, and I want to help other people. It’s something I’ve looked forward to since I was 5 years old. I like helping people.” (HA)

HA Note: “Tonga, a 2009 Kahuku High graduate, said being allowed to go on a mission was one of the attractions to committing to UH.”

About his respect for church missions, Mac said:
“I respect the religion. If (a mission is) planned for a young guy’s life, I have respect for that. The mission allows a guy to experience life, do their mission, and then be able to come and play for us. It’s good for our program and it’s good for the young man.” (HA)

HA Note: “Running back Inoke Funaki, defensive tackle Tuika Tufaga and defensive end Waylon Lolotai served on missions before joining the Warriors. Tonga said he is saving money earned from construction work to help pay for his mission.”

About becoming an Eagle Scout in March, building a sandbox for a preschool as one of his projects, Tonga said:
“It was fun to help.” (HA)
