Anyas special day
Last Sunday we had a dedication service for Anya in our church in Torquay. A dedication service is a bit different to a Christening service as it is simply our way of saying that this precious little girl is a gift from God, and that we are grateful she has been ‘loaned’ to us for this time and...
