The Swazi team leaders have been able to post more information for us since they are staying, for now, in one of the main cities, Manzini. The team arrived on Friday, had their cookout that night, and then on Saturday they had a scavenger hunt around the small city to start getting acquainted with it and the Swazi culture. Here's what else the team leaders had to share:
"Hello All-

We are jumping into ministry in Manzini! Yesterday [Sunday] our group split up and went to two different churches where everyone enjoyed seeing the African church. It was a great experience and a great way to prepare our hearts and minds for ministry this week.

Today [Monday] we went to the carepoint by our house and played with the children there for hours. It was an amazing experience, and everyone on our team was talking about how much they loved the children. We got to play with them, feed them, and love on them (some of them even fell asleep in our arms!).

Tomorrow [Tuesday] we will be splitting up and doing ministry with the Luke Commission (helping restock their medicial supplies) and working in various medical care facilities and at the care point again. We are very excited to continue our ministry here. Sometime in the near future we will also be moving to Timbutini, but we're waiting until we've had a chance to work here and want to make sure there are enough mattresses out there for our team!

Thank you for your prayers. We have all been encouraged by our time spent with the Swazi people and are praying that God would really move through us here."

Here are some photos from our time in Manzini last year just to give you an idea of some of the things the team sees around them:

After over a year, I've still not been able to find out what this name means. I guess I need to restart my investigating. Or maybe "A" will finally find out while she's there.
