December 24th Senior Missionary Couples Do Another Service Project

The project started the week of December 12th thru 17th: Monday at Home Evening we prepared gift bags for the 74 orphans residing at the Nazarene Children's Home located in the Sweto Slum. On that Saturday some of the Senior Elders worked on replacing the metal roof of their school building. On the following Saturday Christmas Eve, President and Sister Broadbent joined with the six senior couples going back to the slum to enjoy a Christmas Party with the children of the Nazarene Children's Home. The party started with introductions of the school staff and the children of the orphanage to the couple missionaries including dancing and games.

At FHE the 6 couples living at the "Nest" put together over 74 gift bags for the kids

Five of us replaced the rusty leaking metal roof of the school.

Here Sister Nevin is called on to dance with one of the young men during the introductory ceremonies.

Outside of the school the kids really had fun doing sack races.
