2016 Mission Trip to Otara

Mission Trip to OtaraOn the weekend of the 23th November 2016, 9 Year 9 and 3 Year 10 students accompanied by Mrs Zelda de la Guerre, her husband, Manie, Andrew and Margaret Marriot from Missionary Ventures, went to the Otara AOG church on a local mission trip. This is the second year KingsWay students had the opportunity to reach out to the South Auckland community and to share many God moments with our Samoan brothers and sisters.
We spent quality time together getting to know each other and learning more about our cultural differences and customs.
On Saturday afternoon, we had an outreach in a nearby park, did some cleaning up and face painting and also sang with the youth group at the playground and night market.
The Otara AOG church treated us like royalty. What was wonderful was how they mentored our students and were awesome role-models.
On Sunday morning we attended the church service and presented our item as well as a love gift to the church. We connected well with them that it was hard for our students and some of our Samoan friends to part ways on Sunday. We hope to repeat this trip next year.
