Farewell And Go Well
We have to admit it was a very sad moment when we had to say goodbye to a family we all dearly love and that has stayed with us for many years. Festus came to us from Rwanda as a single young man as far back as April 2008. We were able to assist him on his 5-year journey to become a fully qualified Netcare nurse. He is working at Netcare Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg, blessed, immediately on qualifying, to have been given a job! During this time, he married a beautiful and excellent young Rwandese woman, Mari Bernard. They now have two delightful little boys, Fido and Raphael. Since both parents now have work, they decided that it was time to give others a chance of the benefits of living at Mercy House, so they decided to move out. Of course, they will always remain a treasured part of our Mercy Family. They have been a great blessing to Mercy House and we will miss them so much, but wish them well.
