WMC: February 2017
It was great to meet up again in January and catch up about the holidays.
This was our last YMOSES with Zack and Jordan before they head off on their adventure with Latin Link so it was good to hear a bit more about their trip and wish them well and thank them and Ken and Gloria for offering us such warm hospitality over the last 6 years.

Our next get-together will be at the Worths' home on March 12 at 7:15 pm.
If you are at secondary school and would like to come along and try our faith-based discussion group you would be more than welcome. Please give me a ring — Jane Kent (765421)
