Published on 4 August 2016 | Admin

The great writer C.S. Lewis once wrote a book on the shape of his early life titled ‘Surprised by Joy’. In this book he shares how he made a radical turn in his life from atheism to Jesus - and how this all happened because JOY surprised him.

Published on 9 February 2016 | Admin

These are some of their answers:

‘I grow.’ (6-years)
‘Sometimes God talks to me or sometimes he doesn’t say anything.’ (10-years)
‘I tell what I am grateful for.’(8-years)
‘Then God listens.’ (7-years)
