Verse of The Day
“Ko tenei hei whakaaro mo koutou, ko tera i a Karaiti Ihu: Ahakoa hoki i a ia te ahua o te Atua, kihai i meinga e ia te rite ki te Atua hei taonga kapo mai; Engari i mea i a ia ano kia poaha, ka mau ki te ahua o te pononga, ka meinga kia rite ki te tangata; A ka kitea nei tona ahua e rite ana ki to te tangata, ka whakapapaku ia i a ia, ka meinga kia ngohengohe ahakoa ki te mate, ae ra, ki te mate o te ripeka.” (Philippians 2:5-8)

"The orcas came right into the shallows. I was about two metres away from them," Ms Malcolm said.
