From the Northern Advocate in Australia comes the story of Jarom Wihongi-Henare, a 17-year-old rugby player from Tikipunga who recently made the leap from amateur club player to the professional Cronulla Sharks in Sydney. In the story he talks a lot about how important his family is to him, and he observes: "Our family would not be as close without our Mormon faith. It is very important to me and has saved me from making a lot of mistakes. I think one of mum's concerns about me going overseas is that I might drift away from my faith. One of the first things I intend doing is to make contact with the church in Sydney." To read the entire story from the Northern Advocate Web site please click here.
