Thanks everyone!

thanks so much for the kind words of encouragement!
wednesday went well. we fed over 150 kids. we decided to
give out as many meal tickets just in case the word got out.
we haven't had to turn away any kids yet, but it's not
something we look forward to.... the mom's are working
hard but appreciate the work.

over 200 kids fed on monday...

hey all, thanks to the help from 5 women in the township,
we fed over 200 kids on monday in a small church in
Khayamandi. many of the kids got to take home some
leftovers as well. sorry for the crude video, but we are
doing it again on wednesday and thursday so i will
try to give you more video then. the need here is
great. all the kids were awesome and really happy. thanks
for checking in!

i made it...

in south africa and have everything set up to go. changed my plan
of attack a bit. instead of going into the schools and giving meal
tickets to the teachers to hand out, i have targeted an area in the
township where many of the kids don't go to school mainly
because they can't afford uniforms/shoes. malnutrition is a
much bigger problem in this area as well. i have hired 5 sinlge
women to help me with the task and we are going to serve the
meals in a small church(a big metal shanty). all of the women are
very poor and very excited to make a few extra dollars($14 each).
we are starting on monday night so i will try to have some pictures
and/or video up on tuesday providing i don't run into any technical
difficulties. thanks for following! you are an elite group at this point...
