Here's some more glimpses into Swazi life from the viewpoint of AIM missionaries, Marius and Jodi Deetlefs.
For many children in Swaziland, Christmas gifts and a special meal are just something to dream about. For these precious children who are participants at carepoints financially supported by individual, churches, and other groups through Adventures in Missions and Children's HopeChest, gifts and special food were an exciting and greatly appreciated reality.
Above the children are seen lining up for their Christmas feast which included among other things, goat meat stew...a HUGE treat for children who rarely ever get meat.
Each child received a Christmas gift. For the school age children, that gift was a brand new backpack with some school supplies.
How thrilled, proud, and appreciative they were. What an example of joy and gratitude they are to me .
