Four Photos and Stories About What We Did in January


New Members
Sixteen people joined Noroton Presbyterian Church, and enjoyed a wonderful dinner with their new church family. The pastors and several elders spoke about the many programs at NPC, and urged the new members to pray about how they might contribute to the life of the church.

NPC Women's Retreat
Sixty-seven women spent a weekend on retreat in the woods near Ivoryton. Guest Speaker, Susan Skillen, suggested that everyone slow down to let God catch up since “He is a three mile an hour God”.

Wearing the Cross
There’s a tradition at the NPC Women’s Retreat of three women wearing a cross for a year, and then passing it on to three other women. One evening the three cross wearers gave their testimonies of how God had worked in their lives.

Dinner with Evalyn
We attended several gatherings with our Kenyan friend, Evalyn Wakhusama, who is the founder and director of Nambale Magnet School. She is very grateful for the bore hole that was drilled there recently, and for the gray water and bio-digester systems, all of which are being funded by Rotary Clubs in Connecticut.
