Geoffery and Joy Turpin celebrated the dedication of Emma Turpin, their first born child, with a family gathering on Sunday 3 October 2009. The service was similar to a Jewish Simchat Bat (Celebration of the birth of a girl child) with readings from Psalm 103: 8 to 18 and prayers of blessing with the parents & grand parents participating. The day progressed with tea after the service and then a traditional family braai until everybody was well fed, tired and happy.
