Surafel – Our Sponsored Child In his latest letter Surafel tells us how he celebrated Easter with his family. They ate a traditional chicken dish with soft drinks & chocolates. He was ill last Easter so was pleased to be able to enjoy it this year. He thanks us for the help he gets from our sponsorship and asks us to pray for his health. The full letter can be seen on the notice board in the hall. As letters take a few months to come from his area we can only pray that his family has not been affected by the famine. Thanks to everyone for their support
