Happy New Month of JULY

Hello... Welcome to the month of July, the beginning of the second half of the year!!!

We thank God Almighty for His goodness and mercies upon us and for making us to see this beautiful day, month, year and time.

It's the summer period proper and a time to travel, holiday and blend with friends and family but unfortunately, countries around the world are still battling with the novel coronavirus. We wish you good health during this trying period and always. Please observe social distancing and wear a mask always.

How was the month of June? We hope it's been a wonderful year so far. Our prayer for you is that the final six months of the year will be better.

As usual, we would like you to know that every month is not just a period of time in your calendar – it’s a period of your life. So don’t neglect it, make the most of it by staying strong and be positive.

We urge you to open your mind to new possibilities.

We also want to use this opportunity to wish all those who will be celebrating their birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, weddings, dedication, etc, this month, a happy cerebration.

Remember to stay out of trouble, be law abiding citizens and be careful in your dealings.

HAPPY NEW MONTH OF JULY.
