It is Thursday afternoon in
We arrived in
Our first stop this morning was Thembeni, which is sponsored by our friends at
It was critical that the team was able to see these progressive locations first as our next visit was to Ludlati. Ludlati is a field in a remote area serviced by roads that run through dry creeks. It was started approximately one year ago by a compassionate mother serving children from her home. It quickly outgrew her capacity and she has secured a large field that I would estimate at approximately 30 acres from the local chief. A large tree in the field is currently the only protection from the elements and marks the spot for a daily fire started in bush wood collected by the group of 4 women who assist her. There were no children in the field when we arrived but as soon as smoke from the fire became evident they walked through the thick covering of trees and bushes. In no time nearly 30 children arrived. They shared that there are a number of children 3 and below that walk up to 2 miles each day to come to the feeding. The most important element is in place, a Christ follower who wants to serve the children of her community and it is going to be another success story, I feel certain.
In all, we will visit 5 new targeted Carepoint locations and I am confident that this vision team will not rest until we are able to develop the base of support needed to have each of them sponsored. A number of these will be ‘Connect Communities’ which will provide YOU the opportunity to become a part of the solution. Be back in touch soon.
God is Good!
