6. Goodness – 7. Faithfulness – 8. Gentleness – 9. Self Control
On September 3rd during the “Family Time” Revd. James Church likened an empty glass to our lives. One of the children helped him to fill a glass with cordial and fruit. This represented the Love which God bestows on us all. Later Casey enjoyed drinking the juice and pears!
