Our Asia Trip
by Ali and Retta Aghbar
We completed a 5‐week trip to the Philippines, Singapore, and Batam, Indonesia in Nov./Dec. 2012. We would like to share picture of a drawing we saw in Singapore. We were struck by how the young artist had captured the relationship between peace and love.

The presence of so many Meeting members at Leonora Cayard’s Memorial was such a blessing.
Friends were there whom I haven’t seen at Meeting for ages. Leonora would have been so delighted. She was such a faithful attender herself. Thank you all for coming.
