    Hi Bryony

    Poor old you falling in a bush, I hope you are ok now.

    It is natural to think of your family and pets at this sort of time, I hope they are all fine now and well cuddled.

    The liquifaction is an odd looking thing, I am so sorry you have had this awful stuff. I see on the news that there are a lot of volunteers clearing it away.

    Are you back at school now? Please send everyone around you my very best wishes.
    From Ella in Auckland.

    Hello, Bryony!!

    Wow! When I saw this website I was hoping Emmanuel Christian School would be represented and there you were – and Gabby too! Fantastic.

    Just as well Mr G got rid of the bees in the bush. It would have been awful if that was the bush you happened to fall in. Do you know it took two days to clean up all the liquefaction? There was a big pile of it on the road wasn’t there?

    I’m so proud of you. You always put other people first so I’m not surprised you thought first about your pets and family.

    Praise God that you are all safe!

    What songs were you singing. “How great is our God,” was on my mind.

    Much love, hugs and prayers.
