Today (March 21, 2013) Namibia turned 23 years for Independence.
At the school earlier in the week, the learners had a wonderful celebration of pledges, singing, dancing and speeches. We gathered outside the small school so everyone could enjoy the fresh air, shade trees and have enough room for dancing and for everyone to be together. The celebration opened with prayer and a devotion by Travis. Enjoy below just a few of the many pictures.
Then on the actual Independence Day we also really had a big party and had a BLAST!!! Everyone helped, even the smallest. Children were cleaning outside to prepare the party area, the staff were cooking and baking and we were all dancing.
Then after giving thanks to our God who provides, our God who loves, our God who forgives, we were invited into a challenge for a fashion show. So, it was the children vs. the staff/parents. Wheeoooo…. we were laughing even after our face hurt!!!! What a show!!!!
Now, Introducing the Zion Children!!!!
Now, introducing the staff and parents!!!!
We ended the fashion show but singing Happy Birthday to Namibia and blowing out the 23 candles.
What a great day of joy, laughter, fun, food and love in AFRICA!!!!!! Happy Birthday Namibia!!!!!!! May God continue to Bless this country, this nation and this world. Thank You Jesus!!!! Amen!
