After a very quiet morning, feeling more or less ill, Pads perked up in the afternoon. He had a nice time with the play therapist again for a while and seemed quite good, in spite of a croaky voice. He's got a little job to do with preparing the conference recordings which meant he was very keen to attend the evening service. Meryl had come back to Wales all the way from New Zealand, partly to attend the conference. She follows his progress closely and children at her church pray regularly for him. She brought a delightful bag full of letters, pictures and gifts from them.
