Respectful and humble Mormon missionaries had a genuine love and appreciation of Māori. They learned the language, blessed children and administered to the sick, lived among the people, slept on raupō mats and ate the same food. Their church set standards that required sacrifice and commitment from converts, but unlike other missionaries, the Mormons did not reject traditional Māori socio-cultural mores. They shared reverence for family and genealogy and were guided by visions and dreams.
This is the first book in the series about early leaders in the Mormon Church in New Zealand, following By Their Fruits You Will Know Them and Let Their Light So Shine: Mormon Leaders in New Zealand.
