Pam Martin will show us pictures of her recent trip to China to visit her daughter-in-law's family.
Michael Bailey returns with two more new films based on a 3-week tour of South Africa's Cape Region. We start in the Cape town area: Kirstenbosch Gardens, Table Mountain and the Cape Peninsula, with African penguins, many unique birds and mammals, and much, much more.
Ann Lathrope will tell us about the charity "Rope" — a Christian International Development charity which works to transform the lives of the most marginalised and disadvantaged people in impoverished communities across the world, especially the children.
Our friends John and Janet Hendy will come to bring us up-to-date with the work that they do for the communities in the Ukraine.
