Dan’s story

I can always remember wondering about why we were here, how we were here, was there more to life, what was the purpose of life and why was planet earth perfect enough to be part of a wonderful ecosystem that could support life? Some quite deep philosophical questions for a 10 year old!

Tricia’s story

I was brought up virtually as an only child. My mother died when I was 3. My brother, who was nine at the time, and I were adopted by a couple in their 40s who had no children of their own. They couldn’t cope with a nine-year-old boy so my brother was sent off to boarding school.

Hannah’s story

I didn’t grow up in a Christian family and religion and God were not things that interested me. When I was younger I also had quite negative preconceptions about church, as I thought it was based on a made up set of beliefs which encouraged intolerance, rituals, restrictions and was really boring too! However, that was before the true gospel was explained to me properly.

May’s story

I was born in a small town in south east China, and I have two younger brothers. My parents love us very much, they worked very hard to save money to support us to go to school, and always left the best food for us.
