Greetings from Zimbabwe! Winter has arrived! Crisp, fresh mornings and hot afternoons before the temp drops to around 9c at night, the children have all returned to school for 2nd term and have settled in wonderfully well.
Isaiah 9:2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.
Greetings from Jabulani, we trust you are all well and enjoying Jesus. We have had a great school holiday month with the children and while it was cold we really had a wonderful time as a family together.
Dear Friends of Jabulani,
Greetings from darkest Africa! Yes it is dark!
We are now surviving on electricity which is only available from 10-30pm til 4am ...it is a very difficult situation to say the least! When there are 13 children with all their assorted school uniforms and daily clothes to wash, dry and then iron it means our fantastic staff are working many hours of the night as well as all of us rising at 5am in the dark to get ready for the day ahead!
Greetings from a cold and getting colder Zimbabwe! The winter has arrived early with cooler mornings and nights and with 12 hour power cuts every day it’s quite challenging to say the least!
Our children are doing very well at school this term, behavior is much better and while not all of the children are academically minded they have done quite well in tests but have room for improvement in some subjects especially Math and Shona language.
Greetings from a hot Harare, the weather shows no sign of abating and it is very tiring and draining most days with high temps and little respite. The children are enjoying swimming and relaxing at weekends as they are very busy with lots of homework every day during the week.
Things have not improved much on the food side of life, the costs continue to escalate weekly and without the help of all our dear Jabulani friends we would be in real trouble but we are trusting God for all we need and He is showing Himself to be always faithful praise God! We continue to import most foodstuffs from South Africa every month and are grateful for those friends who have expressed a desire to help us with our groceries monthly.
Greetings from a stinking hot Harare (35C / 95F). We are hiding in the shade and praying for some wind and respite! The mosquitoes are out in force and we are all being eaten alive! But we are thanking God for His peace, love and joy amongst us and His help in times of trouble, Amen!
