Welcome to the new blog for the New Zealand Auckland Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!
This week begins our first Zone Conferences since President Porter was called to the New Zealand Auckland Mission! We are very excited, we have a mission of wonderfully dedicated, hard working, faithful Elders and Sisters who have come from all over the world to share the truths of the restored gospel to their brothers and sisters in New Zealand.

What a fun way to share your mission with us. Even those of us who live in remote parts of the world--i.e. Monticello, Utah. We love the Porters!

Thank you so much for starting a blog for the New Zealand Auckland Mission, what a gift to hear from you Sister Porter! I will be checking weekly to see updates!

You must have read my mind when you decided to do this. I have so been wishing for some way to correspond with our son's mission mom and hear about some of their experiences from her perspective. Now we'll be able to do just that!

Thank you so much. My son, Elder Trent Jones, has 18 months to go and I look forward to sharing this time with you in addition to the wonderful friends I've made on the missionary mom's website.

Thank you so much! I was excited to learn of this site. My son is Elder Shane Gramlich and he absolutely loves both you and President. I look forward to the updates from New Zealand. Our family has been overwhelmed with all the blessings and miracles Elder Gramlich has been blessed to have. Please send our love to him. Shirley Gramliich

As my husband and I contemplate submitting papers to serve as Senior Missionaries (ages 61 & 58), we can't help but think about the possibility to request a particular mission as our preference. Knowing there are needs all over the world for senior missionaries, it seems a bit awkward to think that specifying a particular mission would be the direction we would want to go. The truth is, we both would love to serve in the New Zealand Auckland Mission. We will be submitting papers as early as November, but won't be ready to serve until August 2011. Just know that we are seriously thinking this as a possibility. Would love to hear from you.
