2012 Schools Team Arrive at Hands @Work

Welcome to the 2012 Link 4 Life Project Schools Team Blog.
The 2012 Link 4 Life Schools Team as they left from Great Wyrley High School on Thursday 12 July 2012
After a  long journey via Dubai the Schools team have safely arrived at the Hands@ Work base  in White River South Africa.
There were some delays in sorting out the car hire in Johannesburg, but the journey went well and all the team are safe and well in Sanderson House, which will be their base for the next 9 days,. Andy Evans one of the team leaders sent a text message to tell us that they had arrived and were settling in- about to have the evening meal which had been prepared for them.

Sanderson House
It will take them a day or two to sort out their own internet connection via a mobile phone connection- but when they do we  look forward to reading about their visits and the people they meet.

We will all be thinking of them and praying for them as they visit communities in the Bush Buck Ridge region of Mpumalanga in the NE of South Africa.  Much of their time will be spent alongside care volunteers who visit and support orphaned and vulnerable chiuldren-These are the people who Hands@ Work are supporitng and who we are trying to build strong ties with.

Well done team! We look forward to hearing all about that you see and do.  God Bless you all
