Josh joined by Rosie at the first fund-raiser

Josh Smith rang with an unusual request.  He was about to go on his african adventure to Tanzania but needed bathroom scales to weigh his luggage.

After doing two very successful fundraising events in St. Mary’s church here in the village, Josh is going to be spending a few weeks in Tanzania gaining medical experience with AMECA – a charity which has a medical input into the health needs of rural areas.

The charity he is working with is called AMECA which was started by a mother who lost her medically trained son when he was only 23 years old.  The project grows on in his honour.  Years ago Josh use to attend the Jamie’s Gang club at Burston Chapel.  Pastor Sam talked with Josh on the phone the evening before he left.  Click the arrow to listen.
