Yesterday (10 October 2008), Minister Lawrance Evans, accompanied by some of our adult volunteer tutors, took some of the children in the tutorial program to sell our official publication, the Black Koptic Press Release. We walked one block over to South Avenue and Alexander Street, which is a busy intersection. The childen overall were very enthusiastic and sold quite a few newsletters. Minister Evans was pleased of the young people's efforts and noted that the children need to learn how to sell.
