What a day!
Today was filled with a huge array of accomplishments by our fantastic group of volunteers here in South Africa. We started off our morning with a bit more heat than usual, but that never stops us!
As you can tell, we got straight to work and had a blast doing it! Some people may think a great time is spent watching TV or shopping, but we know that nothing builds friendships faster than sweat, laughter and making real changes in the lives of others.
After a delicious lunch of homemade hamburgers by our beautiful chef, Busi, everyone joined up together at the new crèche to finish up the foundation of the soup kitchen and water catchment. By the end of it all we were covered in cement dust and sand! But the kids never seem to care how dirty we are, only that we’re there to play and make big blocks for them to enjoy playing with, which we’re more than happy to do.
After leaving the crèche, we all took a walk out to Honeymoon Bend before dinner, and then after checked out the nightlife with a night drive through the wilderness and out to the beach where the stars were bright as day. A beautiful way to end our last day of hard work in the crèches.
Tomorrow is going to be a fun-filled day with a going-away party with the children at the crèche, so be sure to check back to see how much fun we have!
Peace and blessin’s
