The prospective apprentices played volleyball before the evening session began where the vision of Ebenezer and expectations were shared. On the Saturday morning, they had an early morning run from Shalom Camp Site to Ebenezer Training Centre – approximately 5km run. They enjoyed the tour of Ebenezer which was led by George and Siphilisiwe Mlilo. The prospective apprentices appreciated and were motivated by what they saw on the ground. They seemed to ask lots of questions too.

Stephen Manhanga put up this banner as part of his “Spiritual” display. ‘I Have a Dream’ by Martin Luther king Jr is just apt for the prospective apprentices who come on the Selection Camp having a dream and if selected, they realise they are a step closer to their dream.
It was interesting that quite a few apprentices that attended the Selection Camp this past weekend were from Mablauwuni and Magobeni villages which are real close to Ebenezer. In the past, most apprentices would come from villages that are 4 – 5 hours walk.
