Kanimambo! (Thank you!)

The container just arrived!

Finaly we were able to open the container and to give all those donations to the Casa das Formigas (Ant's House), at Bairro da Liberdade, outside Maputo.

The joy of the children and the staff made us feel happy for the hard work to get this container released.

We must thank those who made this possible, not only sending the donations, but also contributing for the expenses involved.

A special word of gratitude for the official and private entities, from Portugal and Mozambique, which support this project, making it possible:

Portuguese National Television - "Praça da Alegria" talk-show
Maersk Line
ISM - International Sports Ministries
Ministry of Finance - Republic of Mozambique
Central Board of Customs - Mozambique
Maersk – Mozambique
Agal, Despachantes
MIPS – Mozambique Ports
Navemar, Lda

Raquel and Soccer...

She tried to play soccer, but the result was a brand new white boot!

We hope that she will be fine for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Our 14th Aniversary...

Let me tell you this - LOVE IS IN THE AIR!

14 years, actually 5110 days or, if you prefer, 122640 hours building our family! And it is still not done!

For those who take "marriage" and "love" for granted, please watch out and start doing your homework. We know how much it takes to nurture and grow a marriage, and even after 14 years of good and bad days, happy and sad moments, we can happily say: We love one another much more than we did 14 years ago, when we said YES!

My students...

Assessment time at the Leadership Development Center, 20 miles away from the capital city of Maputo.

I'm teaching "Leadership Principles & Christian Ethics", and this was the first assessement of the semester.

Don't worry, they did very well. It seems that the teacher is ok!
