Dear Friends in Karori
We have been overwhelmed with your wonderful generosity in the form of clothing, shoes and practical gardening maintenance help.  Taita has been truly blessed and those at St Matthew’s know that when a cry goes out for help God certainly responds!  We pray a blessing on all that you do and may  the care and compassion that you have extended toward your brothers and sisters in other areas return multiplied to you.
Robyn McLay
