We had 58 very, very excited children today. Christmas has come early at Children of Zion Village. The worn, stained, stinky, shredding foam mattresses the children have been sleeping on have been discarded. Thanks to the Kingdom Builders, a generous group of business people in Maryland, a truck arrived in Katima Mulilo today bringing new sturdy mattresses for all of the children's beds. We keep the children busy with school, barn and garden chores, sports games, and other activities. A good night's sleep helps to provide everyone with a good attitude during the day!
On Friday our staff will be treated to a Christmas braii (cookout) with a special meal (including goat) and activities for all to enjoy!
