WEEKLY SMILE: A Sunday School teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan. She asked the class, 'If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?' A thoughtful little broke the hushed silence. 'I think I'd throw up.'
WHO IS WHO?: Each month we will have a new person to discover! A few clues and let us guess the person's identity: Sits at the very back, very tall, quiet and smily, looking to continue studies in US. So, who is our person of January? Let us know during the coffee hour.
