JULY 2019 UPDATE
Extreme Home Makeover: South Africa Edition
Two homes were in need of repair. One of the homes had leaks, cracks, and holes in places that didn’t belong. The other home had too many mouths to feed and too little income to make ends meet. One house needed an experienced worker to do some fixing, while the other needed an educational opportunity to increase family revenue.
Two interns, both retirees, brought their life experience and skill sets to Mafikeng. Below is the fully illustrated story of the impact they made in the two homes mentioned above.
Above: The bathroom you see was done last after Mmolotsi observed and learned from Greg in the first two bathrooms. This third bathroom Mmolotsi completed almost entirely on his own! He did an especially nice job on the shower which required lots of cuts and detail!
As a result of the education and training Mmolotsi received from Greg and Lane he was able to get additional work with a contractor laying tile! Johanas couldn’t be more proud of his son and he’s very grateful for the income Mmolotsi is now contributing to their household.
It’s through community members like you and the Boeh’s that Orchard: Africa is able to have a functioning home for missions in which we can continually educate others on how to better care for their households.
