WwW under new management
The WwW will be changing management in March. Virginia Cano will be moving shortly to work in The Church of Scotland, within the Church in Society section.
The WwW will be in the capable hands of Erica Bonnar and Lorna Main, our two SoutlTouch Ambassadors. They will be contacting every WwW partner in Scotland very shortly to explain their ideas about the future of WwW and SoulTouch.
We wish them every blessing!

As a result of his visit a committee for India has been set up in St. Andrews. Capt. Thacker interacted with different members of our congregation and informed us of the conditions of children living in the slums of Chennai. he will no doubt provide lots of support to the group of young people that will be travelling to india very shortly.
OVERVIEW OF FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES
Kiambaa Fund Raising stall
runs in Carluke every Sunday.
Kirkton Church in Carluke have been doing a number of fundraising activities on behalf of PCEA Church in Kenya. This is particularly important due to the recent troubles that Kenya has been experiencing. The Friends of Kenya are busy disseminating information about the country in the heart of Scotland.
Here are some of the lovely people who have been involved in fundraising.
Soup and Sweet Lunch
@ Holy Trinity
Holy Trinity`s Harvest Thanksgiving service at the church was a good opportunity to highlight the work of Eliseo and Ronald, in Bolivia. Part of the donations collected were `Jars of Grace` which brought in enough money for our commitment to the end of the year of funds for our Bolivian Project in Oruro.
After the service members of the congregation were invited to a Soup and Sweet lunch with videos to be shown of the activities of WwW with of course the emphasis on the work of Ronald and Eliseo, some 80 plus people turned up, we had plenty of soup, thanks to Mrs Cruickshanks and plenty of sweet thanks to a group of `sweet makers` in the church.
The minister and his family were in good form and with a great deal of children there it was a wonderful family atmosphere.
After the meal Ron Cruishank was approached by a young student girl, Louise, who has recently spent her gap year in Bolivia and some time in Oruro...more on this later.
