Alton Webteam: November 2016
A message from John Scrivens and his family:
Just to pass on our huge "thank you" for your letters, prayers and thoughts.
We have been greatly touched by them all and equally saddened by our inability to join you. It was certainly not in our plans and we, like you, hoped that things can return to normal soon. In the meantime we continue to be touched by God and by others; some we know and some we don't. We hope that your future as people and as followers of Christ lead you all to new experiences. God bless you all for your time and care this year. We have been touched by you all! We hope that we will meet again soon, and have the joy of working with Christ again. Until then,
God bless you all
John. Karen, Ben, Jessica & Matthew Scrivens
