What happened on Saturday 8th March, has left us numb, speechless, devastated and sad.  Lets take a moment and say our prayer…  that the MIGHTY one will help ease the pain the families are going through in this trying time.  we hope and pray that they survive this catastrophe, please … please lead them home to the waiting arms of their loved ones,  and if it should be otherwise,  please… please… send us some 'sign', some 'indication', at least something…  so that the waiting families can have a closure to what happened to their loved ones on board. aameen…. _______________________________________________________________ ' Mom, what would you like for your birthday cake ?'  'Mom, what would you like for your birthday presents?
