Howzit Durbs !!!!!
We are having such "kak" weather down here in Mammas City !
I am going to do a late night neighbourhood patrol of about 2 hours - Kamikaze Shift Midnight till about 02h00 - always something going down at that time !
Wife and I are already involved in teaching groups of Informal settlement dwellers how to create Veggie Gardens from the minimal of space and resources - absolute fun and its so appreciated.
You see...............so we have this sister from a country north of us who works for us. She is as most of them folk are .....uber-faithful / zealous etc etc
so she is skilled at being a WT Bible and Tract Sales Representative - but she has not been taught basic life skills - - survival skills in her case- Such has how to make a small veggie garden to survive off.
Surely we ought to be FIRST taking care of equipping the 'hood' with such skills????????
But oh no-
And of course she is living away from her family in Malawi in order to earn some money to send back to them - to survive back there,
Now was she stricken with guilt with the WT a week or so ago regarding working in a foreign land and did the brothers not half lay into her ! Wow ! When she spoke to me on the Monday after the study she was so upset - she is only trying to earn something to send back home to keep them alive - hubby was wiped out in a car accident ,
This is absolute borderline existance stuff - She lives in a Shack ie some wood/ corrugated iron / Plastic No Sanitation
And would the local cong [which is very high end financially "dip in" to assist ? "if individuals feel inclined to do so they may but the cong funds are "dedicated funds" [DEDICATED FOR WHAT FUCKING PURPOSE]
