End of school

Here in Namibia, the children have 2 long holidays (one month each) and one short (2 weeks).  Otherwise, they are in school all year except for national holidays here and there.  The first long holiday of the year begins the end of April.  It lasts for one month and signifies the end of the first school term.  So, this means that we pick up the children from the 4 secondary schools and bring them back to Zion. For the primary school here at Zion, we lead the end of school devotion, give an encouragement speech and handing out the school reports.  Thanks to the MTC donation, our children are sporting smart looking school sweaters to go with their uniforms.  This is perfect timing as winter and cool mornings are coming.

We are very proud of the children this year.  They did very well in school.  For about 15 of them, it was their first time schooling outside of Zion.  Only one had difficulty but the rest passed with very good grades and were very excited!  Here are just a few. 


Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  Colossians 3:1
