By 21:00 Saturday night all had arrived at their different places of accommodation and were well settled in. Sunday was the first busy day. The Maycock family handled the Sunday School at Aphiwe and then everyone was off to the KMP meeting.
We continued our fellowship with a great lunch at Bro. Stephen and sister Tracey Blewetts home. Then it was off to Pretoria Central for a meeting with the Congolese Brethren and sisters.
Monday was our first "official" P2P program day. The team met at Aphiwe Community centre for a thorough briefing regarding the program and what objectives and challenges lied ahead. It was really special to also have Dan and Leah (and baby Josiah!) with us for the day.
After the meeting various places in Tembisa was visited for the purpose of assessing the scope opf work that needed to be done at various crèches and welfare facilities. The team also visited the Kiosk BEC at the Birchleig North Shopping Mall.
A late lunch was thoroughly enjoyed by all at 3pm! Last activity for the day was shopping for the feeding scheme for the ladies and repairing of some Jungle gym equipment for the men.
