The Open the Book Team went into Shustoke School this morning to present the story of Jesus calling His special friends. The fishermen were joined by Edward and George from Year 4, who expertly rowed their boat to the shore with the miraculous catch of dazzling fish. Leaving their boats, Peter, James and John all followed Jesus to become fishers of men instead of fishermen.

We made £82 at this month’s coffee morning for UK Blind Veterans.
