Paul has completed several 8 week training courses with local volunteers –  he now leads a team of ten chaplaincy visitor volunteers at the hospital .                                                       Paul & Jane continue to be involved in Hospital visitation ministry in UK. They lead a monthly “Songs of Praise “ joint churches team around the local hospital .

3) SINGING FOR SWAZILAND – CD’s available
Jane has been asked to make a CD at various times so instead of going away on a mission trip in winter 2012/2013 she decided to make a cd( instead of using the money for the trip). She has recorded a CD of mixed Christian/ secular uplifting songs , assisted by family and friends. CD’s are available to purchase.

4) NURSE TRAINING FOR NOKHUTULA
In order to continue to provide ongoing medical care for the children and community we were thrilled to have arranged a place for Nokhtula, one of the house mothers , to be trained in South Africa. Out of 18 people who went for the three day interview only six were accepted and she was one of the best! The course began in January 2010 and completed in December 2010 .

Progress –
In order for Nokutlua to be trained it was neccesary to have a guarantor and The Homestead Trust made this guarantee. With generous donations from a few pounds to
one very generous couple offering to pay £1000 and an anonymous donation of £1200 all of Nokutula’s fees and expenses of £3000+ were covered.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROUS GIVING!!

WE WOULD LOVE TO SPONSOR OTHER SWAZI’S WHO LONG TO BE TRAINED . COULD YOU COULD HELP???

5) SWAZILAND TEAMS – We last led a team to Swaziland from the UK in November 2010. This was an opportunity to engage in activities such as health care teaching, life skills teaching , practical work in the rural community , craft skill training, feeding programme , youth and children’s centre work.etc. The trip also included a trip to a wildlife area.

FUTURE VISITS ARE PLANNED – INTERESTED?
Do you have medical/teaching skills you could share? Do you have a craft or other skill which you could teach to locals during a trip? Interested contact Jane & Paul.

6) SEEDS FOR SWAZILAND – Seeds transported from UK continue to be used to grow seedlings and plants for local homesteads.
