Live From Africa..
810-686-6571 x231!!!! That the proper extension number to call forr team daily team updates.
WE are in Swaziland! Our second half of our team arrived on Saturday safely. Words cannot describe what I have experienced thus far. For example...a young mother came to us at Manzini (city in swaziland where our church is located.) She is dying of AIDS and her husband has already died...and so has all of her extended family. She has twin three year old daughters that have no where to go when she dies. She asked us to takje her children.
This is one ofmany stories..I would be here all day. Anyways, everything is going quite well. In fact, we have been quite productive, even short a few people for a day. WE have been amazingly accepted and loved by the Swazi people. HEre are 2 pictures.
THe church that we helped build was dedicated on Sunday with 4 different nations represented. Many dignitaries including Bishops from South Africa and Mozambique. We also painted the church and did fencing. Also we played with the children of Africa. They taught us traditional dance and music from their country.
Watch for updates at my blogsite and NBC25 on Monday (july 16th) night at 6 and Friday night. Love you all.
