Two weeks ago, we were in Big Bend, Swaziland, exploring our future home, hanging out with preschoolers, getting to know the teachers, and deepening our relationship with Director Di Hampson at the Moriah Centre. Our kids fell in love with their new home and the children that our family will be ministering to.

Today we receive this horrifying email from Di Hampson:

Please pray for the Chauke family.

While swimming in the Usuthu River, [preschooler] Ayanda was taken by a croc. We are not sure of the details yet, but the police divers have been in the river most of the day searching for her body.

[Her mother] Nonhlanhla is one of our teachers. Ayanda was in the Lions class, prreparing to go to Grade 1 next year.

P1240395 Resized

Pleae pray for this family and all those who love Ayanda. I can't even imagine what they are going through right now.
