While in New Zealand, we did many activities and experienced the beauty and wonder of this wonderful place. We spent the first few days in Auckland. We all had really bad jet lag from the ten and half hour flight from Hong Kong.

Later in the week we went to Rotura, where we ended up staying with some host famlies. In Rotura we went bungie jumping, Zorbing, Ludging and also saw a traditional Moari Village. Our time in New Zealand was a lot of fun.
The people at North Shore Church and Rotura Church were great hosts and treated us like one of their own.

As I stated above, New Zealand tested the limits of all of us and made us stronger for facing some of our fears.
