So I left Cape Town on an important mission: “Mission Royal”. I would have a great opportunity to “knight” three girls who played a great part in helping our Orphan program in Mozambique.
I came to England to talk about Mozambique and its wonderful and courageous people – but what found in England was just as astonishing. We met the most amazing people here. I remember talking to a group of Sunday school 10-12 year olds. I though of an ice-breaker. Maybe I could start teaching a little Portuguese. Well – to my astonishment 80 % of the class could either speak Spanish, Mandarin, Greek, French and Arabic. I never knew England had such a diverse community!
Daisy Phillips teaching us how to shop in the UK.
The local street band did impress me!
And the flowers in spring time …………..
We were privileged to stay at Bryan and Ruth Phillips as we arrived in the UK. Bryan is heading up the youth at their local church in Gilford, London. I should maybe add that Bryan is a youth like no other and at the young age of 75 knows everything there is to know about PlayStation and interacting with young people.
Bryan and Ruth with Alta. They got up early to get us at the airports on time. We shared some great times together. Ruth helped us by selling birthday cards for Mozambique and its kids.
