Church & Community Team arrive safe and well... 3rd August

Hi Everyone,
A really quick note to say that the church and community team from Great Wyrley, Cheslyn Hay and Rugely have arrived safely at Hands at Work in White River.  Good flight, a bit of a mix up with car hire... and then a 6 hour journey (including breaks) with some wonderful views.  We had a warm welcome from Alicia Ralph, one of the folk who live here at the Hands at Work in Africa base  (called "The Hub") We were so glad to have a lovely evening meal whcih had been cooked for us.

Tomorrow we will be helping with some practical tasks at at community centre in Senzokhule which is about 40 minutes from here.  Painting, fencing (chicken proofing a community garden, and other bits and pieces as well as sharing out and eating sandwiches with some of the orphaned and vulnerable children who are cared for by the local community volunteers.  There may be over 100 children there tomorrow... so we made lots of peanut butter and jam sandwiches tonight... Yum !  or Yuk! depending on how you feel about peanut butter and jam...  I think we might get to like them.

Hope to keep you up to date with more info and news soon,

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

God Bless.... on behalf of all the team.
