Dear Family & Friends: We are having so many new and exciting adventures to tell you about. We get up around 5:45am and go as fast as we can until bedtime, learning our new responsibilities and having a peek at this BEAUTIFUL country. We hope in this blog we can express how blessed we are to testify of Jesus Christ and serve Him in this amazing corner of the world! HAERE MAI* to our blog, we're glad you are visiting us!.....(*This means 'WELCOME' in the Maori language)

Melanie and Family


Jared & Melanie Riwai-Couch

Melanie is our DPA in Christchurch.  She and her husband are a wonderful couple and stalwart saints who spend many, many hours in Church service.  We loved the times we were able to spend with their family.  On our last visit, I took these photos.








The FRIEND magazine wanted to do a story on a Maori girl and chose E.  Melanie asked if I would take photos for the article.  These are some of my favorite ones.

 This is her beautiful sister M.


 And her adorable little sister M.  The top photo is a traditional Maori pose meant to intimidate enemies.  (I don't think this cutie has many enemies!)


Here is a picture of Melanie and me.
