A week of so back I had the privilege of going to one of the neighboring townships (aka: slums) to visit a Christian daycare run by lovely pastors --David and Fortuna.
This township is called Zandspruit which means Sandspring in Afrikaans.
My tour guide for the morning was Mickie, a Calvary Chapel missionary who has been working with CC Johannesburg for the last two years.

Kids that would otherwise not have a place to go during the day are instead loved on and given a safe place to grow up.
But more than that... they hear about Jesus.
Now that's something I can get excited about!
Below are a number of pictures I took of that day.

|Kids on recess, later they went inside to learn.|
|The kids loved having their picture taken by Mickie!|
|Studying the world outside... This one didn't realize I was watching.|
|The grounds are colorful and interactive for the kids.|
|Inside the older kids classroom after recess. What a hoot!|
|These smiles are going to stop hearts one day.... and soon!|
