Christmas giving in the Villages

We took our boys to 4 villages to give the gift of traditional Mealie Meal (pap).  We are living on the land that is owned by the village and the old Induna (chiefs) appreciate the relationship of knowing what is going on here and knowing the children.  They are also involved in instructing the children in the African way (one that we are still learning each day).  We try to pay our respect by working with them, learning from them and helping them when we are able.  At this Christmas time, this was a small gift of appreciation for their acceptance and friendship.

And, we only got stuck in the mud 2 times!  Praise GOD!!!
