He is playing with a homemade car.

The kids at VingerKraal don't have much so they make their toys out of what's available. We saw them flying kites made from trash and rolling tires, too.

Boots' bubbles blow over boisterous boys.

Boots Brizendine from First, Florence brought some huge bubble wands for soap bubbles and they were a hit! The VingerKraal kids would laugh and chase them as long as she would keep waving the wand.

Beautiful feet bringing the gospel in Bela Bela

Afternoon in Bela Bela, going house to house. It's easy to visit lots of folk quickly in SA. 90% unemployment means lots of folks are home during the day.

Two girls in the game circle at VingerKraal

The children are always eager to play. Aren't these two young ladies pretty? They are native Namibians living in SA in a village with an HIV infection rate over 50%. One of these two probably has HIV already. They need to hear the gospel quickly!

Our interpreter in VingerKraal

This young lady was good with English. She is college-educated, but unemployed. But, happy to help us walk around her village telling people of Jesus and praying for their health. What a blessing it is to meet Christians in other parts of the world who serve the Lord with a smile in desperate places.
