This article is an account of the missionary labors of Alma Greenwood in New Zealand. Elder Greenwood relates how he did not find any success in working among the whites in New Zealand, and so eventually, he and his companion, Ira Hinckley, were instructed by the mission president to begin work among the Maoris. In this, he says, they were 'marvelously blessed.' Beginning in section nine, his article focuses on the work among the Maoris, who accepted the Gospel readily. I am somewhat doubtful about this piece because it seems to be of the quasi-historical mission reminiscences genre of many articles in the Juvenile Instructor. These articles, while interesting, usually seem to have no substantive historical contribution. In this piece, however, I included it because it dealt with the beginning of the work among the Maoris, which seemed to make it more significant in my estimation.
