We asked Tallie, our eldest daughter (8), to write down some of her thoughts about her trip to Swaziland in January, and her thoughts on fundraising and moving to Swaziland. Here are her self-typed thoughts:
It was my pleasure to go to Swaziland, seeing all those children! I particularly enjoyed our visit to Hlane, one of Swaziland’s national animal parks. Strangely, though, we didn’t see any giraffes at all! I wonder why…
Oh, and I also enjoyed going to Noah’s ark (a large children’s home). Playing with African children in a children’s home isn’t something you would do every day!
When we were making a list of fundraising ideas I came up with making handmade cards. My mum and Seren and Anaya also felt that they should join in too. Now we’ve even made an etsy shop to sell them on, that will open next week! Eeeeeeeeeee, I’m so excited that I could burst!
A big thank you to anyone that donates or buys something from our shop, It really helps! I might be a bit nervous about joining a new school in Swaziland, but I’m still ready to go! I’m sure that I will make lots of new friends in Swaziland, but I will miss Swansea and my friends there!
Thanks for any prayers and support!
