When we think of missionary in this context we often, maybe usually think of English men and women bringing the gospel to Maori. But like Paul who had inside knowledge (He grew up in the Greek world and Luke reports he had some knowledge of Greek philosophical thinking) European missionaries in this country had inside help – Maori who either took the gospel home with them when released from slavery up near Kerikeri, or who worked with the misisonaires. Today we will look at two: Ihaia Te Ahu, Missionary and Priest in Te Arawa who we remember on May 13; and Piripi Taumata-a-kura Missionary in Ngati Porou who we remember on May 15.
