I thought that you might be interested to know that, if the Lord will, we are planning to give a presentation in Hullavington, Wiltshire on Saturday 11 May 2019 at 7pm. Our presentation will aim to give a full update on our work in Ghana as well as an insight into the lives of the children that we support. We have kindly been invited by Mount Zion Christian Church.
The meeting will be in the village hall which is in Hill Hayes Lane (SN14 6EB), and a flyer containing full details is below.
