Youth South Africa - 2018

Hello from Cape Town!

Instead of going to Overcome Heights for their Holiday Club, we had the opportunity to go to Masi for their Holiday Club. The kids at Masi were so energetic and fun to be around. The Holiday Club began with an hour of free time for the kids. Kids were dancing to worship music, playing soccer, and playing a huge game of tag. As free time come to an end, everyone entered the Masi church and the club consisted of scripture memory, worship music, and a game. These kids truly were the most enthusiastic worshippers I have ever seen and the rest of the Brookwood group said the same thing. The kids received a packed lunch, and then left for the day. After picking up lunch at the Living Hope building in Capri, we briefly met with John and Avril Thomas at their house before heading off to Table Mountain. Table Mountain was a great experience even though there was low visibility and the cable car got stuck on our descent. It was a great day and we are so excited for the many more to come!

Youth South Africa - Day 2 - 2018

Hey all of you,

Hope you all aren’t still so depressed we are gone. We have had a windy day full of spending money (maybe too much). We have bartered with street vendors and ate some high quality food. So all in all it’s been a pretty good day. As I am writing this we are sitting on a mountain that should have a view of the ocean but all I see is white since it is foggy. We are making the best out of it by playing two truths and a lie with frans johnson he is really good at this game... and the day is still not over!

Later in the day...

We just ate the our dinner and it turns out it was a 16 course meal. Soooooo I am a tad bit full. The people sang and played music at the end of the meal and obviously I was jamming out with them.

Later in the day...

So as the day has gone on we became more tired so right now we are rapping. I don’t know how that came about I think it was from Kelsey singing so well! Then I layed down a beat about skittles in a cup and the rest is history.  I just wanted to inform you that I have had 3 coffees today. Miss you all!
