Today we had a heartbreaking journey to visit the widows and orphans. Family Homes Movement has an orphanage run by an amazing lady where they live in a tin building with sweltering rooms.
It was the 24th steward union Annual Thanksgiving Service, and featured about 40 stewards; beautifully dressed in white dresses and hats, along with elaborate black fishnet tights.
We went on a rough road to Mayenkheni to check out the work starting on the bakery; beginning to raise the roof and make it safe again. John and his work force were unrelenting in their labour, despite the heat- how do they do it?
Our one focus for today was to bless those involved with Family Homes Movement by providing an opportunity to celebrate our partnership with them.
It was a full day, starting with a trip to finish Henri’s office with his new chair and curtains. It’s humbling to see how excited Henri and Marion are over this upgrade
It’s an experience that has no words; such heartbreaking and heart-warming stories and experiences. There was a chance to pray and chat and sing.
Today we saw the results of the tiling in Henr’s office. He was so delighted, he had a permanent grin on his face.
A huge sense of carnival with trucks, cars and any available vehicle carrying folk who are heading for a huge Christian crusade which is due to start at the stadium.
The heat of the morning was tempered with torrential rain by afternoon. The working party doubled in size with many willing hands trying to get hold of a roller or paint brush.
Today began with some time with the younger children at the school. Teaching a song and the story of the birth of Christ. They loved it all, especially the pencils!
