VIDEO: New Exhibit Tells Story of New Zealand's Hamilton Temple and the 'Labour Missionaries'

Stories, photos and videos celebrate the volunteers who built a temple and a school over 60 years ago

Last month, a new exhibit at the Matthew Cowley Pacific Church History Centre adjacent to the Hamilton New Zealand Temple opened with a special event.

The exhibit is called “Sacrifice and Consecration: The Lord Builds a People for the Temple," and it tells the story of labour missionaries who answered the call of their prophet, and came to Temple View to serve God and build something special.

Elder Kazuhiko Yamashita of the Pacific Area Presidency and his wife Tazuko welcomed guests at the opening events. Many labour missionaries and their families attended as well as youth groups from congregations in the region.
