MY FOUNDATION, MY HOME, MY FUTURE HOPE!
MARCH 2014 UPDATES
Our children have continued attending school and they are doing so well. House mothers, volunteers and other staff have continued to help the children with their homework on a daily basis.
Green valley Farm which is based in Livingstone has faithfully continued to support Kwathu Children’s Home with a variety of vegetables on a weekly basis. For the past 2 months, Kalonga Banana farm has also Been blessing Kwathu Children`s Home with Bananas. In addition Kwathu Children`s Home was as well blessed with Shoes from family Leinhoss in Germany and we had our quarterly shopping which was made possible by Tandeka. We are so grateful for the continued growing support from both the local and International community in caring for these dear children.
Our Kwathu market has continued to grow. All our items are hand made by our Kwathu house mothers, the children and the local community at large. When purchasing an item from our market you will not only be supporting our house mothers and local community members, but also Kwathu Children ‘s Home itself as a small portion of the proceeds go towards further education for our children.
As Kwathu Children’s Home is a Christian faith-based home we have continue to share the word of God with our children through worship and devotions. During this month our focus was on learning about Jesus the Light of the World (Blind Bartimaeus). The text scripture was read from Luke18:35-43 and the memory verse was John 8:12.
Further on, during devotion time the Children also sang some nice praise songs. Our children have also continued to attend church every Sunday which they really enjoy.
Birthdays at Kwathu Children`s Home are always special days filled with so much joy and happy memories. Gertrude turned 12 years old on 11th March .Gertrude`s Birthday was celebrated on 15th March on a Saturday, the Children had so much fun dancing, eating competition and Linto Gertrude`s younger brother helped her cut the cake it was a lovely moment for everyone.
It’s now been a month since David was admitted into Kwathu Children’s Home through the assistance of the Social Welfare. David is a very cheerful you boy and the Children are loving him more each day. We so happy at Kwathu for being part of David`s life and providing him with a place he can call Home.
On the 9th of March we said good bye to Natalie Spronk from South Africa whose gone home for a break, we wish her a wonderful stay!
With the consistent supervision by Mr Agrippa Phiri, the director of Kwathu Children’s Home, work at the building site has continued to progress.
Kwathu local contractors have successfully completed plastering the inside of the building and have now started plastering outside the Building. All this has been made possible by the financial support from Hope builders and Tandeka. A local company selling glass panes pledged to donate and fit glasses in all the windows beginning April.
Please continue praying with us on these requests:
- Funding for a 16 seater Bus (preferably Diesel) that would help us transport our children to and from School, as well as for the use of administration purposes.
- Pray with us for financial support for the remaining stages on the house (Plumbing, Flooring, Painting, Sealing the roof, Doors and glass panes.
- Continue praying for courage faith and understanding that we can accomplish the goals we set for Kwathu and that the Children can live grow and mature in his daily goodness and loving Kindness.
