Family News!
After a year of waiting, hoping and praying, Concilia's children - Panashe and Wadzanai - have finally arrived from Zimbabwe.  What excitement! ... and we share their joy.  Last year, many of us also shared in contributing towards the cost of their airfares ... and at that time $1650 was raised.

But travel is not cheap and the total cost of the airfares has worked out at $3610 - so we are just half way there!  It would be fantastic if we could now help with the other half ... and further gifts for this would be gratefully received.

You are invited to hand any donations to Lesley or place in a marked envelope in the offering plate ... and watch for Concilia's smile!!

The children were able to bring very little with them, so gifts of books, games, toys or clothing would also be welcomed.  Maybe you have some of these items at home, which your family has outgrown ... and could pass them on.  God bless you for your generosity.

The children are attending the Tasman Bible school and fees for this are $11.00 per child per week.  If anyone wishes to help in this area for a week, or month or longer, please contact Michelle D. xxx xxxx or Lesley xxx xxxx.

Meat Available
We have had a Cattle Beast donated and Albert has arranged for it to be professionally killed and packed into small quantities.  Most of this will be used for the food bank but some Prime cuts will be available for people to purchase where the money will also go to the food bank to purchase other items.  See Albert.
