Hymn singing at Bashee River
Time!) and we then left for a short 20 minute drive to the river. After hymns and readings, the baptisms took place in a quiet part of the river and we all welcomed with much joy our two new sisters, Nolugisile Gidi and Nomalungisa Tetyana. Arriving back at Candu and after a good time of fellowship we all enjoyed a breaking of bread service, where our two new sisters were given the right hand of fellowship. Eventually we were able to take our leave and start the very long trip back, although the roads are now greatly improved. We were not impressed to read that the N2 in that area is rated as one of the most dangerous in the world but by God’s grace we arrived back home safe and thoroughly uplifted.
The work of meal a day fund is greatly appreciated by all in the village and has made a profound difference to the village which continues to be totally neglected by local authorities. The upkeep of the premises was impressive and even the gardens and some trees had survived last years drought.
Various health problems were addressed and over 10 blood pressures and blood sugars checked! Accommodation is comfortable, albeit rural and the luxury of flowing water and flushing toilets is most appreciated compared to earlier days.
