12 June 2010 - Nice sunrise at Gt. Zimbabwe

We, along with Bro and Sis. Flake, went to the orphanage yesterday. It was started by Kathy, from Provo, Utah. They purchased the land (about 28 acres) and have built everything up from scratch. There is still so much to do but they have the basics that they need. They have volunteers that come over from the States, mostly around this time of year, and spend 10 days or so helping out. They were building, repairing and playing with the kids. They were doing a
'winter olympics' activity with the kids and having a great time.

16 June 2010 - Isn't she a cute little orphan

Bronte (our niece visiting from Utah) has some friends

Kathy has done a lot and has a wonderful vision of what she would like to see happen in the future as they can afford it. There are about 25 kids there right now from ages 5 to 15. These kids are so lucky to be there and have their needs met. They have started a school and a wonderful girl named Heather is staying here full time to head it up and teach, along with one other teacher and a part time teacher. They have kids regularly show up and want to come to their school but they have to turn them away as they don't have space for more, so these kids
have to walk about 6 miles to another school.

They have some great looking gardens and two boreholes that supply good drinking water. We were really impressed with what they are doing and what they want to do. We need more people in the world like them. We met Kennedy, the little boy who is in the picture that Liz Lemon painted - The Worth of a Soul. We also met Phillip who represented Christ in the picture. He is Kathy's husband, as of 3 years ago. They offered to get together so we could take a picture of the two of them. I thought that was really nice of them. He is a very nice man and was working hard on building/welding a gate for the property there. We had a good day.

This is the "Worth of a Soul" picture by Liz Lemon Swindle that I (Kim) copied from the internet. I've probably infringed on some copyright law, so don't report me - just wanted to show you the painting she's talking about! She said it's a popular picture in Africa because it was done in Zambia. I asked Mom more about the boy and he lives at the Orphanage.
