Family History Milestone

"Making the covenant to be a disciple of Christ is the beginning of a lifelong process, and the path is not always easy. As we repent of our sins and strive to do what He would have us do and serve our fellow men as He would serve them, we will inevitably become more like Him. Becoming like Him and being one with Him is the ultimate goal and objective - and essentially the very definition of true discipleship."
Elder Daniel L. Johnson of the Seventy

This picture was taken for a local newspaper article and included an interview introducing the family history work done by The Church  of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Turners have developed many relationships in the community, supported the Branch in Westport, the local Elders and are anxiously engaged in reaching out in love and service.

  1. I ran across your blog while reminiscing about my NZ Wellington mission, I looked at every posts. It was very emotional for me to remember the time I spent, great friends I made, wonderful experiences and the great testimony that I was able to build. Thanks for taking the time to create this blog. It was great to see NZ through the lense of a missionary again after all these years.
