My lord and I had played in another kingdom for almost ten years. We
moved to your kingdom just recently and I can atest to the shepherding.
If it hadn't been for some wonderful people helping us feel like a part
of this kingdom it might have taken us longer. I too want to be a
shepherd. It is a wonderful program and idea. Count me in. Bye,
Viscountess Kate, aka, Barb Howard.
