guess what is on 1st of June?! You’re right, it’s mothers day for Ammish! Ok, maybe you’ve noticed our cheating: Of course most people celebrated on the 12th of May. But for us that is not a reason not to change the date – such an important day has to be well prepared… And that is what we did.
Our event-location for the day – the methodist youth center – was kindly provided by Bishop Paul Verryn. May you be blessed for your support. The hall was perfect to accommodate more than 130 women and our performing kids. Because what would be mother’s day if there were no children to bestow and honor them.
But we started this special day with some warm words and an opening prayer by Pastor Thabiso Motsepe. Mr. Jabulani Sithole, responsible programme director, led through the packed agenda of the event. But first things first, the days motto was:
Join us to celebrate our irreplaceable, wise,powerful,selfless,courageous and strong minded Mothers
And they really got celebrated, that’s for sure. During the last weeks our beneficiaries used their time to rehearse songs and poems and finally gave their best during the performances. To keep spirits high we garnished the agenda with little motivational inputs. Our mothers listened to words from Miss Rebecca Masilo and Mrs Mmarona Motsepe to name only two. After the vote of thanks from Ammishs director Mrs Masishaba Mlotshwa all participants were looking forward to a nice and nourishing lunch.
A big thank you goes to everyone who supported this special day for our beloved mothers. Here we want to mention Dr Kopedi and Dr Molefi who donated face cloths and bath soaps. A special greeting goes to our german friend Andreas who generously donated for fluffy fleece blankets to keep the woman warm during winter!
