Verse of The Day
“I a koutou mahi katoa kaua te amuamu, te tautohetohe; Kia kore ai koutou e whaikupuria, kia tapatahi ai, he tamariki kohakore na te Atua, i waenganui o te whakatupuranga tutu, parori ke, kei roto nei koutou i a ratou e tiaho ana hei rama i te ao; Kia mau pu ki te kupu o te ora; kia hari ai ahau a te ra o te Karaiti, kihai ahau i oma noa, kihai i mahi noa.” (Philippians 2:14-16)

(Northern Advocate, 16 January 1923, Page 7)
