The primary school children have been busy knitting and sewing for a while, and finally theyhave finished off their projects. We love their creative ideas and bright colours!
Our Sewing Girls
Some of our older girls have also started taking professional sewing courses, so that they can potentially start their own seamstress businesses someday. They have received their own sewing machines. See them model their graduation dresses that they designed and sewed themselves!
Image has gone off to study for her bachelors degree in psychology and Christian counselling at the Swaziland College of Theology. She initially applied only to do a diploma, but they phone and insisted that she had the potential to do more! She was also awarded a scholarship to study in Cyprus. We hope God will continue to guide her in her steps.
Doors have really opened for Sibusiso - he received a 50% scholarship to go to Cyprus to study, and he was also accepted at Eswatini University for Geo-Informatics. However, he decided to do his 4-year degree in Medical Laboratory Science at the Christian University. He will now be staying in Mbabane, and he has received a laptop to help him with his studies.
Together with a team of students from Potchefstroom, we paid a visit to Mlambo primary school. Among other things, the team also took some of the kiddies to the Meyer's farm to collect peacan nuts, and prayed over the foundations of the new building site. Some of the men were also able to supplement the Pasture Valley soccer team in a match against Tfokotani. In good character, PV graciously allowed the other team to win (again). Maybe next time we'll make it! Nick and Cornelia also visited with their families and were a big help on the farm.
Trip to the Airport
Some of the Pasture Valley home-school children went on an educational trip to King Mswati the III Airport to pick up the Nobel family who stayed and volunteered at Pasture Valley for a short while.
