You will recall that, during the summer, we collected hymn books and bibles to send to Sierra Leone, following a request from the Methodist Church in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Several boxes of books, along with cash donations, to contribute to transport costs, are now in Hull awaiting the next container to go to Freetown.
Rev Lansford Penn Timity (South Holderness Methodist Circuit) was delighted and moved by our contributions; he sends thanks and love for our thoughtfulness and generosity. He will be visiting Freetown next month and will tell people about our gifts.
