...while working at our mission station in Swaziland and interacting with the mission station administrator Mrs. Mae Simelane, teachers and 300 plus children who attend the Pre-School and Primary Schools, I witnessed something that I must share with you. These little children are so beautiful and so smart. The teachers are so dedicated. Our children and our school ranked #3 in the entire Nation of Swaziland. Their only request from us here in America is a playground. They never had a playground, they only seen pictures of one. The administrator has sent me pictures of what it will look like. A fence with a gate is badly needed to secure the property and protect the children. Thieves are coming onto the property at night. People are wandering onto the property during the day while the children are present...

The conditions mentioned above with God's pastor's and people would not be tolerated in any fashion here in the United States of America. These are our Christian Brothers and Sisters. They are National Baptist. As you can see by the dates I have mentioned above, I need your help NOW!!!. During our trip to Malawi this coming July, we will again visit the mission station in Swaziland. After two years of talking about this playground equipment, I just can't imagine facing those precious children without the money for that playground. Please help. We are Americans, we are African Americans, we are National Baptist. We can do this working together. It is my prayer that God will put it in your heart to give a generous gift toward these very worthy causes...
