Lamontville youth at Camp Braambos in Gauteng

17th August 2010

This past weekend we took 12 of the Lamontville youth to Braambos in Gauteng, thanks to the generosity of the Cambridge Ecclessia. Some of the members sponsored a child each and helped toward petrol and tolls. For this we are very thankful! The youth were so excited to go that when I arrived there 30 minutes earlier than the arranged time, they were all waiting with their bags. Every mother was also there to see us off! Even younger siblings had come too! Before we left we had an uBuntu prayer for a safe journey and a spiritually uplifting camp. We arrived with no hassles except for the youngest being sick all over the person next to her. The camp was indeed very uplifting. The youth all sat in at every talk and listened earnestly to every speaker! During free times they interacted with the youth from other parts of the country and when it was time to leave I noticed quite a few meaningful friendships had been made. Most of them didn’t want to leave on Sunday! It was a great weekend and they all seemed to really enjoy themselves!
