THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS
Just want to thank everyone for all your prayers and kindness over the difficult months during Karen’s illness, operation and path to recovery. We have been overwhelmed by the way the Church has supported and looked after us. I’d particularly like to thank the team who made food for us so that Hollie was not solely reliant on my cooking, then equally Karen on her return from hospital. Karen still has to fully recover but the messages from the Consultants are encouraging and positive so we can look to the future with optimism. Your love and support really has made a big difference. Yours In Christ, Alan
