We had a lovely afternoon with the B-Tales today! It was an emotional rollercoaster as we were reminded of the wonderful things Jesus did before being condemned to death on the cross. The children really felt that there were there with Jesus. Although we were sad, we know that there is a VERY happy ending to come!
