Extracts from this document...


WITNESS TESTIMONY Today I witnessed Blessing read to the children during circle time. She read the story 'five minutes of peace' from the large family series.

They had a lunch of potatoes, green peas and chicken nuggets, with yoghurt and fruit muffins for dessert. ...read more.
