This past Saturday, we had the opportunity to attend the graduation ceremonies of two of our children at MCV. They were graduating from two different preschools at the same time, so we all had to split up so that we could go to both!
At one of the graduations, the children performed in a program of dancing and fun. There was contemporary dancing and some traditional siSwati dancing as well. Dea, our newest full-time missionary, had the honor of being the guest speaker for the event. The kids were pretty tired from all the festivities by the time they went forward to put on their caps and gowns and receive their certificates!
After the program was complete, the entire crowd was served a traditional African meal that the women had been busily cooking up in big pots all during the ceremony.
We at MCV are so proud of our new little graduates. They continue to take steps forward, and we know that God has great plans for each of their lives. We eagerly wait in expectation for what He will do next!
