We arrived in Metsimothlabe yesterday and received a warm welcome from the sisters. In the evening, we attended a special Mass for a Brother who works in Botswana, followed by a dinner. It was truly an international event with at least 9 countries represented.

Today, we began painting a Center for orphans and vulnerable children in the village of Mmopane. Sister Vinaya is the director of the center and she provided great leadership today. The children are referred to the center through the outreach program of the Hospice. We are painting the alphabet, numbers and some pictures to help with their educational efforts. We made great progress today. We are surely grateful that Sister Olive joined us to share her artistic skills.
