Just a quickie today as we’ve slowed the pace down a bit – phew!
Went to RUSH ladies this morning – the hall that used to be the pub was full of women – and even a few men! The leaders gave several talks (!) which seemed to focus on ‘stop complaining that you didn’t get a gift on Saturday and be grateful for what you have’!! It was put slightly better than that but that was the gist! Everyone gets something at some point but they have to wait their turn.
They were encouraged to share the little they have with each other in order to build community. Many of them stood up and prayed, and nearly all of them started by thanking God that He had given them another day…………made me think how often I thank God for just waking up? Every day to them is a blessing as they see so many people around them ill or dying.
Saw in more detail how the Tailoring, Carpentry and IT courses are run. IT is the most hit-and-miss of them all as the power isn’t that reliable, but they manage, without complaining.
Got dropped off at the Golf Hotel for a swim but as soon as we put our costumes on the storm started – typical! All we could do was sit under the shelter ’til the rain stopped and have a Tusker (beer) – boy did that go down well!!!
Think the plan for tonight is to sit and chat about how to proceed with child sponsorship…..and with that actually start looking at the specific children that need the most help ie. total orphans who have no family at all to support them. Then tomorrow we are going to the school to see more of how it operates day-to-day and how they care for all the children there. After that – who knows??!!
Re the shower – managed to have a freezing cold shower at the Golf Hotel but walking back in to town I have ‘flip-flopped’ all the mud straight back up my legs!
I have also now had to imagine the rats not as squirrels but as Disney characters having a party – there must be an open-house/party going on up there!!! Semi works for me?!
Byeeeee again xxxx
