  1. Bible says that when we confess our wrongs (I John 1:9), believe that He died to save us, as well as ask Him to transform us by
    His power, He really makes His house in our hearts and also offers us brand-new life and also a new outlook (2 Corinthians 5:17).

    What a great way to spend a Saturday…young and old working together for the purpose of raising money for the British Red Cross Ebola Appeal.
    As well as achieving/exceeding the target for this Charity, these folks involved obviously had a happy, healthy day.
    VERY many thanks to all donated to such a worthy cause.
    It is a sure way of showing our support and thanks for the many selfless people that are putting their health at risk to treat and ease the suffering of those affected by this terrible disease.
