New Zealand Herald Features Jonah Lomu and His Faith

Auckland, New Zealand — 

“All Black great Jonah Lomu has become a Mormon — but don't expect to see him don a suit and ride a bike going door-to-door spreading the gospel,” according to a report in The New Zealand Herald.

The article continues: “Lomu, 37, who is fighting rejection of a transplanted kidney, was baptised into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Wellington this year, the Church has confirmed.”

“Since then he and wife Nadene Lomu have addressed congregations at "come and see" or "fireside" gatherings at a Mormon church in Mangere.”

Read the full article in The New Zealand Herald.
