Kristy's African Adventure
Today's field trip was to Halelinyane. It was awesome to see how the training they received from Growing Nations has given them food security and changed their lives! We got treated to Basotho dancing and a delicious lunch of all home grown food except for the rice and chicken. I was sad to leave my new friends who felt like family.
Kristy has shared "some of the beautiful sights from our hike in the amazing Lesotho Highlands yesterday." See here!
Just finished an 18 km hike in the Highlands of Lesotho - totally amazing waterfall, villages, animals, and scenery. And now off to bed while I can still move. . . Not funny, as my knees are hurting a ton. 169 flights of stairs. Lesotho highlights!
Today we learned how to build a compost pile Lesotho style! A layer of branches, a layer of green leaves and two bags of manure and then you add water and keep building until it is two meters high. Dad would be totally cracking up that we bag manure:). And did I mention we did this in 30 C? I was longing for a snowbank. I hear we got snow at home:)!
We got to bathe in the river again today - it felt so good!
Darcy And Cathey - A Pilgrimage
Each year, for the past 7 years, Darcy and Cathey head to Israel. Initially, it was to experience the sights and sounds of the place Jesus lived - to walk the same roads and stand in the same places as their Lord - and to engage their faith more deeply as they participated in a holy pilgrimage. They quickly fell in love with the people, and have returned each year.
