Some were more adventurous than others with their food choices and our youth got to join the live band in a round of “Baby Shark”. On Sunday we...

They arranged for us to go to another church and assist with a gospel film and feeding. On the way there we stopped and saw the second largest display of the 10 Commandments in the world. What a sight! At the church we played games...
