We got TALENT at COZV: Let the April 2012 SHOW BEGIN!

On Saturday evening, April 14, we had our regular talent show and featured all that were bold enough to sign up AND participate.  Before the show began the MC and the music organizer (Travis) set the stage. The show kicked of with the MC announcing and encouraging all that were present to watch to cheer on their brothers and sisters.  Travis had some help during the show and I was a bit jealous, but she sure is cute and I do love her!

Happy Easter from Namibia Africa!

HE is Risen!!! HE is Risen indeed!!

We had a wonderful Easter Celebration at Children of Zion Village.  We started with a spirit filled service of songs, a skit and sermon delivered by Travis.  The skit included Mary (mother of Jesus), Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Peter, John, Angel and Jesus.  They were at the tomb on Easter morning and the grave was empty!  HE IS RISEN!!

After service a nice braii was prepared with the traditional chicken, pap, soup, potatoes and cabbage.

We moved the tables out by the river and had a celebration meal together: Children, staff, volunteers and us.  When the meal was ready, Liseli rang the bell (with some help) for everyone to come.

After lunch the girls were wondering: “Hmmm, so is that the Easter Bunny in that boat?”  So, we passed out some marshmallow Easter Eggs.  Ymmm….  Smiles were everywhere.
