[New Zealand] Women of the northern part of the country of islands gathered for a weekend of praising God. The retreat’s theme, “Start with Amen,” blessed not only the women in attendance but also the guest speaker, Litiana Rakarakatia Turner, director of children’s ministry for the South Pacific Division.

Turner thanked “Lynelle Laws and her awesome team for such fun fellowship, authentic sharing, and the privilege of testifying to each other of the greatness and goodness of our ever-faithful God.” Laws is the leader for women’s ministry and partners in ministry for the North New Zealand Conference. She was also the organizer for the event held May 3-5, 2019, in Silverstream, Upper Hutt, New Zealand.
