It is a rather busy day with lots of little feet and voices (big ones too!) filling the jail. Every Saturday we turn the old prison into a place of worship and enter wholeheartedly into setting people free. It’s a day of singing, praying, and eating. A day where we endeavour to empower the people here in the knowledge that they are of great importance and they can be instruments of change!
Today Martha volunteered to do the greeting and tell a little of her week. Later on, a little girl called MJ read her favorite verse in (John 3vs 16). Following this Hubert presented a short message on this exact verse. The power of love and how we can be thankful to God in the good times and the bad. Some singing, a powerful video, and the mission story wrap it up. A simple prayer follows and now it’s time for lunch preparation.
Lunch preparation and the following lunch are always well looked forward to with the kids being able to enjoy hands on helping. A favorite is a flat bread that almost all the children know how to make. Then lunch (and subsequently dessert) are complete and it’s time for a walk. Or a visit to the beach, depending on the weather.
At the finish, with tired happy children, we drop them all home and look forward to next week…
