OTHER EVENTS IN DECEMBER
Rephat's final trip to the Binga area for 2009 was to Siabuwa, where all of the volunteers from both Siabuwa and Nsenga gathered for a year end graduation ceremony and to receive certificates of achievement. Rephat was presented with a live chicken, which travelled back to Harare with him in the landcruiser.
Through Prison Fellowship Zimbabwe, all of the children at the Chikurubi Daycare Centre received a Christmas box from Samaritans Purse, which were filled with lovely toys and sweets. For many, it was the first Christmas present that they had ever received.
The entire Michael Project team, gathered at a Harare restaurant a few days before Christmas for an end of year lunch. Not only were there silly hats and streamers, but a number of (brave) staff produced a skit depicting Dave and Rephat. Needless to say, there was much laughter.
The team from Shalom challenged other members of the Michael Project (headed by Rephat), to a soccer match on Christmas day, in the front garden of the home. The victors were Team Shalom, and a re-match is scheduled for New Year's day.
