day nine: mandela park
One of the days we spent in Cape Town we visited a subdivision in the suburbs called Mandela Park. We visited a church there and talked with Phumezo, the pastor, about what his vision is for this area where crime is rampant, HIV/AIDS is affecting a majority of the community, and most all of the kids there are considered vulnerable and at-risk because of broken families and violence. It was an extremely humbling experience, while also extremely encouraging. Phumezo's vision for the community is one of a true servant. More about this neighborhood in coming posts. I wanted to include these pictures of Phumezo's church, below, although there aren't many.
