This afternoon we...

Reflections by the 3 Amigos

Alan: Today was a day of reflection. I think it finally got to us all that camp was over and the kids are gone.  A few of us have started communicating with the kids via whatsapp already. It is encouraging to know that we can continue to stay in contact and encourage them in their faith...
