He went on to say that, “We had a great joyful event today as I baptised a mother and her four young children. What a joy it was when the 10-year-old came up to me after the Baptism and said ‘I feel all new now I am all different’ and he was. It was lovely baptising them and the children were so excited…In the midst of such a desperate situation it was wonderful to have something which was so nice.”
