Meet Edson...OBY's Sponsored Child

At Eastercamp this year, we decided as a youthgroup to sponsor a child. Well the day has finally come... meet Edson. He is 8 years old and lives in Malawi. You can do a google search to find out more about Malawi. His favourite activity is soccer!!

So far those who want to support Edson are:
Amy Hay
Andrew Wilson
Anna Tabak
Chloe Halliday
Jade Rudman
Jasmine Hamilton
Jess Moore
Lydia Stewart
Mark Wilson
Michael Koppes
Mollie McPherson
Nick Sands
Roanna McGowan
Sasha Aitken

If you want to add your name to this list, please comment here or let Amy know. It doesn't cost much to do your bit in helping support Edson... only $2 a month (you can choose to pay more if you want) - give to Randall or Amy on the 1st Wednesday or Sunday of the month.

For those of you who can do maths - we need 6 more people to make the $40 a month.
