To celebrate Mother's Day, the men in Auckland 1st & 2nd Ward put on a lovely dinner and evening of fun for all the mothers
There was a DJ to play music and plenty of DANCING!
But best of all was simply the opportunity for these wonderful sisters from many different cultures to gather together in friendship and love. The ward we are in now has members from Samoa, Tonga, Niue, Cook Islands and some who grew up right here in New Zealand. But no matter what their background or heritage, they display more unity and love for each other than I think I've ever seen in any place I've ever been. It reminds me of the passage in the Book of Mormon in 4 Nephi 1:15-17 that says:
Truly, there are some great women in this congregation. I look forward to getting to know them better.
