June 16th was the holiday "The Day of the African Child" and we had a wonderful time celebrating here at the mission and at school. All school staff and students, as well as all mission staff were encouraged to wear ethnic African clothing and I LOVED seeing all the beautiful, colorful outfits! We had a fantastic presentation with the whole school where students read poetry, sang songs, saw performances from the group, "Face the Nation", and listened to an 87 year old man share with history with them and charge them to make a change in Africa. A wonderful time was had by all and the day was made just a bit more special when the Botswana news reporters showed up! We were all ecstatic to see our little school make the national news here in Botswana on Tuesday night. What a wonderful experience for us all!

Here are some pictures from the day and the rest of them can be found here.
