Christmas is always celebrated on 25 December and is the biggest celebration of our year, since we invite all our past residents and those we assist who live outside, to join us. The Rosebank Union Church, Investec and a few other friends provide us with beautiful gifts, while restaurant owner, Anna, provides us with a delicious lunch for 60 people every year. To these kind people: thank you for enabling our Christmas to be such a joyful occasion. The pictures show our young Father Christmas – BK, our 7 year old orphan from Congo – with his assistant, Zeng, giving out the gifts. We were happy to have Comboni Father John Masneschg join us for the occasion.
Michael Jacobus and Innocentia were sent to us by Father Jeremias, Comboni Provincial. And what a blessing. Michael started helping us in December 2014 and we have kept him very busy. He is going to be a very great blessing and asset to our Mercy work. Michael is seen in the photo below with Emmanuel, the designer of our website, to whom we also owe a big debt of gratitude.

Innocentia will be helping our scholars with Zulu and Afrikaans this year. Welcome, Innocentia and Michael and thank you for all that you have done already.
