You shall be my Witness

Yesterday , myself and a few other girls took part in our first 'You shall be my witness' leader programme. You shall be my witness is a programme for sixth class students making their confirmation.Myself and Lauren Mc were placed in the local boys school to help the leaders to co -ordinate the boys. Yesterday was our first day which was okay for the start ! Next week we are going to be taking a separate group to talk to and help the boy which i hope will be more interesting!We also all took place in this programme so its good to see it from a different perspective! Ill update you about how i get on next week :) -Laura
