"I was really interested in meeting a group that accepted everyone" 
Meet Rosie! She is a recent addition to our CFS family, having joined only 5 weeks ago. 
Rosie has enjoyed meeting new people and engaging in great discussions. After watching a video about CFS online, she felt a strong desire to get involved.

 She is beginning to see how the Bible can be relevant to all aspects of her life.
