From 1973-1988 I was mentored by Captain Whironui Tibble MC & Bar, Padre Wi Te Tau Huata MC, and Major Aussie Te Okanga Huata MC. They were my three Papa who instilled within my soul the vision going forward into the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
The vision was to prepare the Maori Army of young missionaries ie Elders and Sisters from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints under the leadership of Thomas S Monson, Prophet of God, through all the Stakes of Zion in New Zealand and the globe.
I completed the Temple Ordinances for Papa Whiro Tibble through his niece Margaret Wilkinson (Tibble) who prepared the temple ordinance work. Before he died he asked me to complete his temple work at his home in 231 Crawford Road, Kaiti, Gisborne, which was next to my Mum and Dad's home in 235 Crawford Road.
In 1986 at the LDS Polynesian Concert, Town Hall, Hastings was asked by Papa Aussie to do his ordinances when he died. I 1986 a Te Runanganui O Takitimu Hui, Mahia, Aunty Hana Puriri Cotter said to Papa Aussie and I she would do his ordinances because she was serving a Temple Mission at Hamilton New Zealand Temple.
In 2005 at the Te Ohu Kaimoana Maori Fisheries Commission & Ngati Kahungunu Iwi Inc Hui, I visited Aunty Hana Puriri Cotter and asked her if she had completed Papa Aussie's work and she said no but you do it. Then she said to me "I want you to give the Maori Party your support" so now 2017 will roll forth the 1973 vision of my three Papa. Papa Wi's ordinances were completed by his nephew, Brother Nicholson.
Two weeks ago I agreed to assist Toro Waaka to complete the D Company Book.
