the return of husband and father, Humphreys Munai! In watching the news

still can happen. All of us share in the joy you experience and the
reminder that ‘life is precious’!

our last letter, I announced the coming of Michael Reardon and Patrick
Lane. Patrick was hospitalized and so the tour has been postponed. When
I hear more information I will let you know – hearing the Gospels
proclaimed in one setting is truly a powerful experience you won’t want
to miss. It’s very good for your little ones to also experience (second
grade – 4th graders).

“Life to the Full” – NOW
good is the Good News? Do you find the Gospel the most exciting thing
in your life? Do you think you will find your greatest fulfillment in
religion? Your greatest joy?
Entrance Antiphon calls “all the earth” to “break into song’
worshipping and praising God. Kind of makes you wonder if the good news
has ever gotten through to us. In the Opening Prayer, we ask God to

those who believe in God’s love.
Scripture: Isaiah 62:1-5; John 2;1-12; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11
