    I did get all those names. My sister's brother-in-law is Neville Bartle from NZ who was missionary to Papua New Guinea for many years and did a great deal of work with the Pidgin translation of the bible there.

    Interhouse Haka competition at my daughters school last year. (yes the school houses are named after missionaries)


    And a haka to farewell the Bethlehem College Year 13 students last year
    But but but... isn't that "cultural appropriation?"

    If white people went around doing Native American dances over here, the liberals would have a field day.

    Actually, your part of the world is most certainly on our bucket list. On our last international, we were actually headed for the UK, and last minute changed to Israel.

    I'd love to do Scotland/Ireland in particular, and your part of the world as well.

    Do you think you can arrange a meeting with Xena while I'm there?
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    ....if she's not protesting with Greenpeace.... but can more easily arrange a meeting with Phil Rudd ...... just need to ask him if he minds me drooling over his McLaren when he's next visiting the neighbours.
