Refilwe

This beautiful girl sang for us at Refilwe. Her voice was amazing!


Dancing for Money

Dancing for Money

These little children danced for money on the side of the road.


Molly

Molly

This is Molly! She was my room-mate on the mission trip. We had so much fun together! I can't even look at her picture without smiling! Do you know how long it takes to walk from the border of Swaziland to Jo'burg? Molly almost got to find out! :-)


Abandoned Baby

Abandoned Baby

I'm holding an abandoned baby at the ABC orphanage.


Smile!

This is Tom Davis, president of Children's HopeChest, with some cuties in Bulembu.


Care Point Kitchen

Care Point Kitchen

This is a go-go stirring "pop" at a care point.


Bubbles!

Bubbles!

It was so funny to see the children light up when Suzanne and Andrea brought out the bubbles at each care point.


Thulwane Carepoint

Thulwane Carepoint

This is Suzanne with a sweet little girl at Thulwane. The children loved to color with crayons. Check out this little girl's tattered clothes-- and to think there are days I stand in front of my full closet thinking "I have nothing to wear."


Ntabamhloshana Carepoint

Ntabamhloshana Carepoint

Aren't they beautiful? This grandmother and mother with a new baby, gladly posed for a picture at Ruby's care point.


School at Beveni

School at Beveni

This teacher, (also the care point go-go), used the scarce resources she had to teach all of these children in this stick and mud hut. She amazed me!


Tyler and Nokwethwu

Tyler and Nokwethwu

Think you're too young to go to Africa? Meet Tyler-- he's 15 and he was a vital part of our mission team. He's holding Nokwethwu, Zinhle's little sister.


Joyce Meyer's Care Point

Joyce Meyer's Care Point

These are some little children at a care point that Joyce Meyer has sponsored. It was a thriving place with a clinic and preschool.


Swazi Beauty Shop

Swazi Beauty Shop

Here I am with the teacher from the Beveni care point. Check out those braids in my hair! Lovely, huh? It's not everyday you get to have your hair braided by little Swazi girls! It was fun, but it did take Tyler and me over 30 minutes to work the matted braids out of my hair!


Ira and Friends

Ira and Friends

Ira works with HopeChest in Colorado. She spent the night at orphan camp while we were in Swaziland and as you can see from those sweet smiles, she made lots of little friends.


Loaded with Kids!

Loaded with Kids!

How many orphans can you fit into one truck? I lost count! These children were headed home after two days of camp. It didn't bother them at all to be cramped in the back of this truck.
