WARMING HEARTS IN CHRISTCHURCH

Thursday, July 28, 2011



CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand - Visiting members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Sheri Dew, Virginia Pearce and Hillary Weeks warmed Christchurch women's hearts with music and the spoken word last night at a special meeting to celebrate women of faith.

Sheri Dew, a former member of the Church's General Relief Society Presidency and Virginia Pearce, a former presidency member of the Church's Young Women Organization, paid tribute to the courage and resilience of Christchurch women who have endured numerous earthquakes and aftershocks since September 2010.
Both women shared stories of compassion and courage which connected well with the 160 women in attendance at the Latter-day Saints' Cashmere Chapel in suburban Christchurch.
The audience were visibly moved by two musical items performed by accomplished singer/songwriter Hillary Weeks.

Included in the audience were Member of Parliament Rahui Katene and representatives from the Christchurch Interfaith Council Dianne Downward, Melanie Riwai-Couch, and Sister Bertha Hurley.
