Activities activities activities

On Sunday 16th November Max Church (Director of ADRA ) invited all kids to a Water-Game-Party!
It was great! They played different games and had lot of fun in the pool!

…and we had “chakula kizuri!”…very good lunch!

The Children say “AHSANTE SANA BABA MAX” from ADRA for this wonderful day!

On this weekand we borrowed us the Van from ADRA so we drove on Saturday to a Seven-Days-Adventist Church in Arusha.

The children enjoyed it and it was a big blessing for us! All dressed up!

Our guard Julius cut Thomas hair!...we were all exciting!...especially Evelyn!
In the end, she was really surprised! Now, he looks really good!!!
(I should say…Evelyn told him before…either Thomas looks good or Julius can leave Haviliah! :-)

Once we had a “Pyjamas Party” with house two..…the girls slept in Evelyn `s bed and Thomas slept in the boys room…. We had so much fun! …Sereti, Jessica, Laiti and Diana…they got stickers and nail-varnish…they loved it! girls do… We, Thomas and Evelyn, we couldn’t sleep very well…sometimes the kids snored loud like old grandmothers and grandfathers! Incredible!

On Sunday 9th November we went on Safari with the kids from house 2 to the “Arusha National Park”! Everybody was exciting and happy!

New Directors, first Blog

Hello here are the new Directors, Thomas and Evelyn from Austria and Germany. We are very happy that we are here with the kids. It’s really a wonderfull, nice and blessed place.

but we are realy sad about, that Ned and Emilys left us.. this is the last picture of them
“Don`t play with the water”….. a sentence which we often say to the kids!!..they love to play with water!

…So we had a small “water-battle”! It was so funny and all kids were very happy! Thomas, Evelyn, Ariel and Mariala were the chiefs!

Laughing children is a blessing!
