Often pictures say more than words. So, here are some pictures that hopefully give a glimpse into our first couple of months in Botswana…along with some words. Please note, if some of the pictures do not have visible captions, click on the picture.
First few days in Botswana and Gaborone
Bontleng: Place of beauty
Nathan & Taryn Dirks hosted us and were gracious guides during our first days in Botswana. They brought us to Bontleng Futsal Park in Gaborone, a park they helped design and build. The park provides numerous recreational opportunities to youth in a safe and sustainable environment. (Click on any of the 6 images below to read captions)
Thamaga Village Stay
Life in Francistown
We moved to Francistown in mid-March. The two pictures below are of the Mennonite-affiliated house where we have been living thus far.
Mother Theresa Resource Centre (MTRC)
We are beginning to get more involved at Mother Theresa Resource Centre. We will start working there consistently/daily as the Fall program gets into full swing later in May. These are some pictures from some visits we took to the feeding program that takes place on Saturdays (no captions).
Meeting with community partners
Bokgani Sporting Club
We were invited to a netball exhibition game recently to see and learn more about the Bokgani Sporting Club. This amazing NGO serves as a local park and positively impacts youth with a netball club and other sporting opportunities throughout the week. It seeks to empower youth and help them reach their full potential.
Thanks for visiting and catching a glimpse into our life right now. Also, thank you for your thoughts and prayers as we continue to transition to life and ministry here in Botswana.
Blessings to all,
Asher and Lindsey
