Monday, 13 February 2017 1:13pm

Lorraine Wong and Zhen Huang were asked by the Otago Museum to help decipher a varied collection of items from New Zealand missionaries in China who were supported by the congregation of Knox Church in Dunedin.

They included written documents that bear witness to the missionaries' attempts to learn the Chinese language; examples of materials used to promote Christianity; and hints about the connections they formed in their new communities.
