Hello, i am doing research on the 'Tuku Fonua' of Tonga. I wonder if you could please help me with any sources ie. Missionaries diary entries, memoirs etc.. Tuku Fonua is when Taufa'ahau the first king of Tonga, gave the land of Tonga to the God (Hebrew) to protect Tonga. My causes for this is the success of the missionaries in converting Taufa'ahau from his old belief into the Christian beliefs. Thank you for your time.
Kind regards,
Leah
