The final New Zealand stop for 40 Days for Life board chair Matt Britton was in Christchurch, where the 40 Days for Life vigil takes place outside another public hospital.

?Connor, a first-time leader, is well supported through the Order of St. John and many other churches,? Matt said.

The Christchurch portion of the trip included a presentation to the pro-life club at the University of Canterbury. One of the club's officers thanked Matt "for coming to visit and for your strong and encouraging words."

?Matt was a great presence here in New Zealand and the vigil has got off to a brilliant start,? said Michael, the Auckland leader. ?Hopefully, this campaign will be a wonderful blessing for many. Thank you to all the team at 40 Days for Life ? what you do is excellent!?
