New Tile at Martha's House in Phokeng

We’ve been working on installing new tile at Martha’s House, the orphan care project in Phokeng where we work with orphaned and vulnerable children.

This little house has been a work in progress over the last 4 years.  As money comes in, or as visiting missions teams come, we are slowly finishing it.  Previously it had a concrete floor that was very difficult to keep clean. 

We laid tile in the kitchen, storeroom, and dining room.  This is a huge improvement to place.

I’m so thankful for a grant from GM South Africa that provided the funds for this, and for the expertise of Matt Meng, a local YWAM missionary who has brought his knowledge and sweat to make this happen.

Matt and Tebogo

Tebogo is a young man who has grown up at Martha’s place over the years.  He is now a student at a local IT college.  We are teaching him how to lay tile, and he’s been a big help to us.

Martha is very excited to have floors that look nice and that will be easier to keep clean.
