Church College of New Zealand


Bill Heperi: We're going to have two presentations this evening, it's all about Church history, it's about a lot of the missionaries that came to New Zealand, way back in the early 1900s, Sister Rangi Parker will be our presenter and after half an hour of that we'll follow through with a recess for a moment, and then we'll have John Aspinall, he'll present to you rather interesting pictures of the labor missionary days when they constructed this whole campus, temple, the college, visitor center, and surrounding faculty homes. So without further ado I'm going to ask Sister Rangi Parker to lead us in "We thank the O God for our Prophet". Then I'd like to invite Brother Sam Beazley who is one of the first labor missionaries I believe, to offer the opening prayer for us.
