While Roger, Mary and Annie have been living it up in the sunshine on the Isle of Wight, Helen has been busy back in Birmingham. She has been doing some work with the children at Saltley Methodist Church for the past few months, and this week it has culminated in a holiday club.
It is a very poor area of Birmingham, so it is wonderful to see the kids coming and enjoying themselves. A major part of the holiday club has been learning some songs for a special Holy Saturday presentation. The children are being really good and enthusiastic about the music, which is impressive because quite a lot of it is a bit sombre. One of the members of the CMM choir, a lady called Jan, has been one of the helpers for the week. This afternoon she is leading a craft session which involves icing cakes - could be messy!
Do pray that as the children learn about Holy Week and Easter they would get to know Jesus more.
