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”
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!
