|REPHAT FACILITATES MEETING WITH PASTORS IN MASVINGO|
Rephat was recently invited to Masvingo, in the south of the country) to facilitate and address a meeting of 50 pastors from various churches in the area to initiate discussion in the role of the church in reaching orphaned and vulnerable children, in particular adoption and foster care.
|MICHAEL PROJECT TEAM TRAINING|
Once a month we bring the whole team together for training and equipping. Since July we have been running a course called The Connection, helping our teachers and mothers understand the issues that affect children who have come from 'hard places' and learn how to bring healing and restoration to these hurting children.
|FOSTER SUPPORT GROUPS|
On a monthly basis, ladies from the community come to The Michael Project, referred by social welfare, to receive formula milk and nappies (diapers) for the babies that they are caring for.
|KILIMANJARO CHALLENGE - THEY MADE IT !|
The team from Arundel School recently completed their fundraising challenge for The Michael Project, and made it to Uhuru Peak at the summit of Kilimanjaro. The flag in the summit picture was painted by the children at Shalom prior to the journey… plus The Michael Project flag is on the right.
The team’s mascot was Simba, chosen because the Shalom children’s favourite movie is the Lion King. Each day a different Arundel girl carried him on their back-pack all the way to summit!
|TEAM FROM LANCASTER BIBLE COLLEGE VISITS|
What a fantastic week we’ve just experienced in The Michael Project with the team from Lancaster Bible College. The children were thoroughly spoilt by an amazing programme that included puppet shows, lively songs accompanied by guitar and fun crafts. The ‘experts’ on the team also blessed the mums at Shalom who struggle with issues such as delayed learning and developmental delays with some of the children in their care. Thank you LBC !
