After the tickets were booked for our 3 month return to the States, Arron and I began an anxious countdown for our departure. Arron and I said our goodbyes to Vuyiswa, Gertrude and all the children on Monday; the day before departure day for us. We had been dreading our goodbye to all the children for quite some time and we were both rather unsure how they would respond. Our hearts were put at ease and filled with joy when we received a goodbye letter from Nokwanda (15), of which I would like to share with all of you.
“From: Gertrude and all Children
To: Lauren and Arron
Hey guys we like to wish you a good trip and God be with you. I like to thank you guys for being kind to us and trustworthy. I would like to thank you again for being friendly and spending time with us. Thank you guys very much and God bless you and I am so happy that we have met people like you guys, people walk the advent road with God.
I would like to say this message to you guys. Prayer thought! Walk in the Light and thou shalt own Thy darkness passed away because that Light hath on thee shone in which is perfect day.
Arrive safe guys and come back home safe. God bless you.”
