Things are changing.

Yesterday (Friday) a team of young people from Merland Rise Church Tadworth and Holy Trinity Redhill arrived in the village. I was amazed that shortly after arriving and after a long and tiring journey the first thing they wanted was a football. I think I can just about remember being that energetic. However by 9:00 pm all were tucked up in bed and fast asleep!

Things on the blog will be changing from here onwards. I will still be reporting on any meetings and visits I have associated with BREAD but also I will be keeping you updated on the teams activities and progress for the next couple of weeks. Also the pictures may be less or non existent as I have lost my technical director, Simon, who has had to return home to work. Hopefully next time he can stay for the whole trip. It does mean also that there won't be anymore of those great 360 shots. 

I'd like to say a warm welcome to any parents of the team members. I hope you enjoy keeping up to date with what your youngsters are up to and are not missing them too much. Do please take a look at the BREAD web site and read a bit more about Berega and the sort of work we are doing here. You can get to it from here:  

Today the team have had a tour around the village and taken in the sights, sounds and smells of Berega village and after a lunch of ugali and meat they have gone to run off all their excess energy by playing games on the airstrip. Don't worry there are no planes due today! Tonight its home cooked pizza, as they don't deliver out this far. Tomorrow the real work starts and I will keep you updated as to what they are doing and how they are progressing.
