Praise Report from Quizzers
Two teams of RAC quizzers and their leaders and chaperones travelled to Ottawa last weekend for their first quiz meet of the year. It was a fantastic time of fellowship with others. We had a great time quizzing. While our teams may have finished in the bottom half (out of 21 teams), we have many things to be thankful and happy for. A big thank you to those who volunteered to go and supervise the kids. We are grateful for the support of the church and those who prayed for this weekend.
