Perth-Andover Elementary School helps PROLASA Orphans


On Friday, January 22, the Perth-Andover, New Brunswick Elementary School presented a cheque to Daniel and Dr. Barry for $1250 to help with the cost for sending a container to Congo.  This money had been raised by the sale of a Christmas CD which was made by the students at the school.

Led by Denise Budrow, the music teacher at Perth-Andover Elementary, the students did an excellent job and on behalf of the PROLASA staff and the children at the Patmos Children’s Village, we would like to thank Denise, the teachers and students of Perth-Andover Elementary for their generous contribution and for all of their efforts.

Part of the presentation programme was a song which was written and sung by two of the students Lily Nadeau and Alie Hanson, and another song sung by the school choir.

Lily and Alie’s song was entitled  “Be Strong”

Be Strong

Don’t be afraid, it’s just me.

I have come to set you free.

It won’t be long ’till you see

How happy you can be baby.


Whoa, Baby be strong

Whoa, I want you to live your life

Whoa, You may not get everything

Whoa, But I want you to know

That you’ll always have the Lord above

Be strong.  Be strong.  Be strong. Be strong.

I’ll lift you up off the ground

And make you believe

That there’s more to life than what you’ve seen

So I’ve come here to set you free.


Baby just be strong!

Thank-you so much for you help Perth-Andover Elementary!
