Our daughter has been leading her team in South Africa for over a week now, and will soon begin working with students on the various campuses of Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth.
Last week they worked with children from some of the poorest parts of the city, though. Here’s a picture of our daughter and her co-leader. You can see all their training is paying off.
The team also visited an animal sanctuary where she got up close and personal with one of the residents. This cub seems more docile than the kids above.
She and the team of American university students will be overseas for a few more weeks. Their immediate focus is helping establish a campus ministry in Port Elizabeth through CRU. The team is excited to partner with the local students who are ministering to their classmate throughout the school year.
For those wondering about our son, the team he’s leading to Vietnam leaves in about 3 weeks. In the meantime, though, he’s in charge of worship music for the Senior High houseboat trip this week and the third session of the church day camp he’s directing is coming up next week.
How my kids got so industrious can only be explained by their inheritance of their mother’s genes.
