The last few days have been very eventful.
On Monday night Matt had the opportunity to play with a local basketball team. He had a great time and was recruited to go with the team to Mozambique on Saturday for a tournament. He is really excited to go.
On Tuesday we went to Joy Preschool, which is run by Precious Langa. It was a lot of fun!! We were able to listen to the kids sing for us and recite a Bible verse, I taught them a new song, Matt taught them a new game and we finished our morning by making puppets out of paper bags. The kids enjoyed this a lot!! Mrs Langa told the kids that they must go home and tell a story to their family with their puppet.
Tuesday afternoon we headed out to Enaleni to write letters and colour pictures with the kids for each one of their sponsors at Riverwood. I thought it was so neat to see the children make their craft for people I know at church!! I was able to see the work they put into each stroke of the crayon!! The preschool children coloured a picture and the older children wrote a message saying, “Thank you for your support and prayers. We love you!”. This was such a great time spent with the kids at Enaleni! We also bought them a new soccer ball with pictures of flags for each country that played in the World Cup. They were pumped when they saw this ball and they all wanted to see the pictures of each flag.
Today we are going to Bhobhokazi to make the pictures and letters with the kids there.
We are waiting on the school shoes to come in still from Cape Town but when we get them we’re going to hand them out along with new crocs to each of the preschool kids.
Construction on the church continues. There is now stage and the glass will be put in the windows soon!!
Thats all for now!
