The team split into teams again to visit hostels, to continue training, and a host of other roles.
One team spent the morning with the toddlers and babies in the Miriam Centre while another group played with the 8 - 10 year olds. This group donated a soccer ball and spent their time vigorously playing leader ball, tunnel ball and the like much to the delight of the children.
Everyone reported a fantastic time of loving on the kids. All being impacted and touched with messages written on hands, cuddles, time spent sitting on laps. A wonderful experience.
|Easy to love these little ones.|
Our neighbours have been celebrating the new year and a wedding. Here are some shots of the incredibly loud band that marched the streets to announce the wedding. A marquee was erected in the vacant block next door and a street kitchen cooked all afternoon to feed the invited guests. The band with four drummers, trumpets, tuba, and a traditional seven foot long horn marched the lane ways celebrating. Again let me tell you they were LOUD!

A yellow dot is in memory of a deceased loved one. People may choose to wear no Tikka for up to 12 months while in mourning without any questions being asked about not wearing the Tikka.
A red Tikka with a silver marking indicates the wearer has been to the temple, a noble and required act.
A Tikka of red and white tells everyone that you have given to the temple.
Being a Christian in this sort of society means you stand out immediately and makes life a lot more difficult. We acknowledge the committed stance our Christian brothers and sisters make in this land.

Till next time.
