The Lakeside Baptist Church

The Lakeside Baptist Church Preschool seems to be a place where people can come and find a little peace, spend some time with themselves. Sometimes, this thing can mean more than we realize: this way, talented people like Jean-Jacques Porret often discover their talent. You can see Porret's works on http://jjporret.com/.
