We finished painting the church in Tswaaneng village today.
Each place we visit leaves us with new insights that broaden our understanding of the world. One of the many lessons learned these two days is how precious water is. When we arrived at the church, we learned that the water had been shut off to the property and the water vats were empty. An elderly woman brought two 5 gallon buckets of water for our use, and we know that she was sharing a valuable resource with us. We saw donkey carts with jugs and buckets on the wagons, lined up at the water station on the way to the village. For the people in this village, water is extremely precious. This experience makes us think about the ways we use water.
Tomorrow we leave for Metsimothlabe where we will visit with the Sisters and paint a day care in the village of Mmopane. Thanks for sharing in our journey in this way and for your prayers for our continued safe travels.
