Day in and day out in New Zealand, David and I marveled at how the moody South Island clouds would break open and stream “Jesus rays” down on the cities and landscapes below. So when it came time to wake up before sunrise to trek up the mountain and catch the first glimpse of sun overlooking Queenstown, our whole crew was praying for those golden rays of light and God did NOT disappoint!
