The Bytesize team led by Paul and Barbara (Aspire Design) worked closely with The Sisters of the Presentation while making “The Furthest Lantern.”

“It gives me great joy to see your initiative of a 70th commemoration film of our Sisters arriving in Taita in January 1951 and their ministry down the years. We Presentation Sisters endorse your initiative and are willing to participate, share our archives and support you in any way possible to bring your project to fruition.”

“Dear Paul, your proposal for a documentary “The Furthest Lantern” about the work of the Presentation Sisters in New Zealand, and specifically in the Hutt Valley, has my full support.  It’s a story of dedication and personal sacrifice which deserves to be told, and I congratulate you on the decision to make the documentary.”
