News from Double Joy

Attached is the latest newsletter from Double Joy in Kenya.

Also here are two letters from children at Double Joy:

To all at Sheffield Quakers,
Greetings are coming to you with lots of love hoping that you are fine and doing well. We are also fine and doing well here at Double Joy. My name is Andrew Otieno Onyango. I am 14 years old and have 2 brothers, Kevin and Mark and a sister called Phanice.

Notices, 11th December

Children’s play
Next Sunday, the children will present their short Christmas play. There has been a change of plan since the last notice about this and the play will now take place upstairs, in Room 1, after Meeting. There will be time to get a hot drink and a mince pie before settling down to enjoy the entertainment. Afterwards the festivities will continue with some Sheffield carols led by David and Alan.
Please bring mince pies, or other festive fare to share, and take these upstairs before Meeting.
