|I was due to return to the mission on January 12th
but just a few days before I was due to leave,
my 93 year old aunt was rushed into hospital and was
not expected cancelled my flight, and went to stay in
Devon with my cousin for a month, spending every day
with my aunt at the hospital...
Well God is good, and they certainly made that
generation to last... Auntie made a full recovery and is
now at home safe and sound....
But as I have said over and over again everything is for
a purpose, and I'm very sad to say that two weeks after
I returned from Devon my mother was taken ill,
and sadly on the 9th March she passed away....
Eternal rest grant unto her Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon her,
may her soul and the souls of the faithful departed rest

the meeting and thank them for
all their input.

We cannot allow this to happen
to the children again!
Over the next few months we will
be staging several fund-raising

So if you just happen to have a
spare few thousand lying around
