A Call To Prayer

I would like to remind everyone that there is a prayer meeting at my home every Tuesday morning between 10 and 11:30am.  It is a safe place to open our hearts to the Lord and to seek His will for our lives, our families, our town, our country and beyond.  Please speak to Ann Hindson or Vivien or just turn up when you can.    Vivien Thomas 492086
