Ki a koutou, ki a koutou mā, kia kaha, kia māia, kia manawanui.

You’re going to bring it all back to where our tūpuna were were way back in the 1840s. Heoi anō, ngā mihi nui rawa atu ki a koutou, kia kaha kia māia kia ora.

Tuatahi ki a koutou rā he aha ai? Ana, kua tae mai. Kua tae mai ki konei, ana, ka kite kanohi ki te kanohi. Nā reira kei te mihi atu. Tuarua, ana, mō te kaupapa. He kaupapa rangatira tēnei rā nā reira kia kaha ki a tātou katoa ki te kawe i tēnei kaupapa. Nā reira tēnā tātou. Heoi anō i tēnei wā ka huri o tātou whakaaro ki te runga rawa, kia oti pai tā tātou nei hui mō tēnei wā. Nā reira me inoi tātou.

We have arrived at the conclusion of the day. Thanks to all of you. Firstly, we gathered together to meet each other face to face. Secondly, this is an important kaupapa that all of us need support in. However it is at this stage that we turn our thoughts to the Lord for his help during this hui.
