Some insights and some dancing!

 Dear all, today was a blessed day. We woke up sharp - 6am start - to all get ready and make it sure for an 8:30am start. We worked strenuously till 10:30 carrying heavy bricks, bricklaying and mixing cement. The adorable Malawian kids assisted us proving yet again how hard working and dedicated to their community they are. 
At 11:00, we looked round the secondary school. It was surprising and enlightening to see how school life is particularly when we went to the notice board and saw all the students results published, displaying if they'd passed or failed. The classrooms, with a capacity of 40 students minimum, made me feel grateful for the small classes I attend at St Saviours but also appreciate the efforts of Joshua to provide educational facilities for the local children. 
We also saw the nearby clinic that provided a maternity ward, HIV testing and malaria testing. It was very inspiring and motivating to see the effort the community put in to care for each other, displaying a community spirit we should all aspire to. 
Finally to end the day, we had another G4g session. The Malawian girls taught us some traditional Malawian dances and chants bringing us closer together. Vicky x ps missing you all my family. Love you guys so much and see you when I come back (mum I'm cooking dinner tonight!).

  16. Hi Zareefa Vegetarian is no problem, it's good at last, you know we eat too much meat/chicken. Are you cooking it, be good experience. We are missing you loads, Rayhan and Kamillah especially.

    Work hard it makes you stronger for the future, hard work always pays off and you will know that achievement is never impossible if you set your minds to it.

    We played monopoly last night, Masood started with a great hand but was first out. Rayhan had awful luck, Imty was floating by and Kamillah seemed like not a care in the world.Lots of usual bantering going on, some tears with you know them! We got to the finals. Kamillah and I was left for the battle and guess what Kamillah won again, its getting to be regular picture!

    Keep posting its good to see and read about all the actions.

    Love you loads
    Mum xx
