Homeless




One of my daughters favourite past times where she lives in South Africa, is to go and visit one of the homeless shelters down on the sea front area of the city. Some time back I posted about how she helped deliver a baby over the telephone when a teenage girl had arrived at the shelter in labour. Last night she took a team of people from her church to go and 'hang out and make friends' with those who have found themselves in this desperate situation. I have never been with her to the shelter but have spoken in the past to a couple of  ladies who have been with her. They told me that my daughter 'comes alive' when she is with these people. Above are photo's taken from last nights visit. Next Thursday she arrives in the UK for 12 days...her regular 6 monthly trip out of SA for visa purposes....I cant wait but really wish she was bringing my Grandsons with her too :(

That'll be the silver lining to bureaucracy, seeing your daughter. I believe at least one of your grandsons has school to go to - no time to be skiving off to be with the Grands! xxx

Your blog always has an 'uplifting' tale. Have a wonderful time with your daughter. xx

What a special young lady you and husband raised. What an unique and caring ministry she is part of. You can see in her face how much she cares about those around her.
