We were honored to be invited to attend the Mafuta Preschool Graduation. Mafuta is the center that Zion supports with food and a few school supplies, electricity and fire wood. There are many orphans in this village and these ladies volunteer their time each day to cook for the children so they have at least one meal a day. Two of the ladies teach the class of 50. Yes, 50 preschoolers!!!!! All is done outside or in a very small building. The graduation was outside with music, balloons and food. The children marched with their balloons and sat nicely under the big tree in their small plastic chairs.
People young and older attended and gathered to watch the small ones be honored.
Since there were only a few caps and gowns, the children rotated wearing them and it did take some time to get them all changed and through the line. The staff helped to get them dressed and organized. SO CUTE!!!
Travis and Lorna were both called upon to speak. Did we know ahead of time? NO! But you must always go prepared for anything. So, mama Lorna was ask to pray and Papa Travis was called upon for a speech. So we were thankful to God and to the teachers, parents, volunteers and those of you that donate financially to support the efforts at Mafuta. As you can see, it is paying off and the children are happy, healthy and educated.
We Give God the Glory for this place and the supporters and for the ladies that volunteer their time at Mafuta in love of Him and the children.
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63: 3, 4
