A time to close...




We have been so busy lately with all of our projects and have recently closed six with six more to follow. Thought we would share a few pictures from a few of them. At Lefara High School- tables, chairs, shelves and books were donated for the library and a borehole was finished so they could actually use the water. Now they have three taps where the kids can drink or wash their hands and poor in the community will be able to grow gardens on school property. Elder R stood to speak to the student body and faculty at the hand-over ceremony and I stood up next to him and put my arm around his waist, so he put his arm around my shoulder and the whole crowd of kids hooted and hollered. The show of affection in public is very rare in their society and so the reaction was understandable.
The Katha Day Care Center received mattresses, tables and chairs and lots of Family Health Supplements. The children were so cute in posing for their pictures on the new mattresses, all saying, "Cheese".
The Onyose Trust is a day care center for mentally challenged young people. Books, tables and chairs, educational games and paint were donated. The missionaries in Windhoek, Namibia helped paint the rooms and also did an underwater mural for the dining room...they didn't feel comfortable about painting the mermaid so the worker that requested it ended up painting her. The missionaries are great and love to serve!!
