Farewell to the model farmers

There was a special dinner to bid farewell to the 6 model farmers: Brilliant Khoza, Mkhululi Ncube, Tawanda Moyo, Mqondisi Moyo, Simangaliso Ndlovu and Sithabiso Thsuma. The evening started off with a bit of humour after the dinner and with a song by the Union Brothers. Two of the model farmers gave testimony of their time at Ebenezer and encouraged those remaining to give it what they got and not be sidetracked.

I really enjoyed listening to the remaining apprentices publically honour the 6 that were leaving. It was beautiful. The 6 have been at Ebenezer from August 2007 and have done extremely well. Seeing the change in their lives from 2007 until now is wonderful. They are more confident, well trained and equipped in business, agriculture and spiritual, they have given their lives to the Lord and are ready to go out and teach others in another community. In one sense it was quite sad and touching saying goodbye and praying for the model farmers but in another it was just so momentous seeing young people rearing to go and start a new life for themselves and impact a new community.

The two girls Simangaliso Ndlovu and Sithabiso Thsuma capped the evening by making biscuits for everyone. Thanks so much to Marlene Poe for the discipleship of these girls and for the many biscuit recipes she left behind.

It was a good evening!
