97 children received books!

The school children’s choir at the ‘Silent Night’ event was 97 strong! I heard that the children were very excited when they learnt they were being given copies of ‘A pennyworth of Peppermints’ and one little girl brought hers to school the next day as her classroom reading book and used it to do her English classwork. Please pray that these little ‘seeds’ will grow and bear fruit in the families where they have been placed. Thank you to everyone who helped to finance this project.


This week we were in South London and left copies of the new Applebrook trilogy with a friend, for him to pass on to his grandchildren. I have just received an email to say he had a preview and just loved reading the books. They brought back many memories of watching trains at Norwood junction in the war, being evacuated himself and he hopes his grandchildren will ask him lots of questions about his experiences!
