Titahi Bay District Car Wash in Paraparaumu Last Saturday. Great job, Elders and Sisters!
We attended a beautiful Musical Fireside tonight, produced by the Wellington Sister missionaries. Many missionaries, and others performed in " Come Unto Christ". Many people were touched by the Spirit. Thanks to all who participated!

“I have learned that today’s sensational headlines eventually become tomorrow’s historical footnotes. Always remember the gospel, or ‘good news,’ we proclaim will continue to be the most important news to the world your missionaries will teach in clear and simple terms.” —Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve , New Mission Presidents Seminar 2014

Some beautiful scenery

We have arrived in Wellington, to the best mission in the world!
We have had a whirlwind 2 1/2 weeks, and we have travelled to each of the 7 zones in the mission. Turbo prop planes, driving on the left side of the road in our car, seeing the larger cities in the mission, meeting individually with 180 missionaries (25 or 30 more to meet tomorrow) and loving the good people of New Zealand!
Here are some pictures from Zone Conferences in July.
