2017 South Africa October, Day 5

This morning we returned to the Place of Safety property to paint another classroom and buildings, continue computer training for staff and teachers, and do final work on the crosses prior to decoration by the children. The crosses, with children’s names, will return to COR for “adoption” at Christmas, in aid of this mission.

Although many steps lie ahead to bring this property to its potential—final zoning approval, development of a fish farm, chicken operation, and tunnel gardens—the vision seems clear, the need is great, and the will is strong. It was a blessing that COR was able to assist Ditshego in the acquisition of this property when it became available. It is hard to imagine another location that could better complement the operation of the preschool at Mooiplaas.
