Christmas in Metsimotlhabe

Posted by Spalding Hurst

December 21, 2017

Metsimotlhabe faith group of Sisters and Associates reached out to the poor with Christmas gifts:

The faith group of SCNs and Associates of Metsimotlhabe reached out to the less privileged families in their community giving them the joy of celebrating Christmas. They gifted food hampers to four poor families. Each member of this faith group contributed P. 10/- every month throughout the year towards a fund to purchase food hampers for poor families during Christmas.

Metsimotlhabe faith group of SCNs and Associates gathered on Sunday the 16th of December for faith sharing and Christmas celebration. During a very creative prayer ritual, each one shared the greatest blessing they experienced during the year 2017 and a blessing they desire during 2018. They also sang Christmas carol and exchanged Christmas gifts. This was followed by a delicious meal of variety of dishes from different cultures – Botswana, Kenya and India.
