Inderpal Wig and Preeti Hayre did kirtan while we all sang along. We were reminded by the sangat and committee what a wonderful undertaking we are doing and it all concluded with warm langar that the team was happy to enjoy, and were very happy to learn that the St. John’s Gurdwara would be providing the rest of our meals for the remainder of our duration in St.
