Yesterday we finished painting the alphabet, pictures, etc on the walls of the Mmopane Center. Monica and Millard also trimmed a thorn tree in the yard. We were proud of how everything looked when we finished. We were surprised today with a performance of a tribal dance by the children of the Center. The students of this Center are known in the area for their dancing and we watched in amazement.
Tonight, we enjoyed an Indian meal prepared by the sisters here and then played Jenga to finish out the night. A great time!
Today, we toured the Hospice and Millard is building supports for a trellis. This afternoon, Sister Pat and Tootsie are driving here for a visit – we’ve missed them so it will be a treat to see them again. Sister Nalini is helping to lead an all-day workshop for youth in a nearby village.
We stand in admiration of the work of the Sisters in each place we’ve visited. The spirit of Mother Catherine is so evident. The deep faith and generous hearts of the Sisters shine through in their interactions. What we have given is so small compared to what we have received. Our hope is that our presence here is a sign of our great love and support of what they do every single day.
Our time here is quickly drawing to a close. We are soaking up every minute and remain so grateful for all of this!
