by Budal Family, February 1, 2011
With excitement we have welcomed the Budal family from Norway. They arrived in Jhb on Friday 20th August , purchased a vehicle on Saturday 21st August and drove to Empangeni reaching here at 21h00 that evening. This family of 5 have uprooted from their home and made huge sacrifices simply to come and serve and work at iKhaya, for 10 months. Tormod will be working on Oilrigs on alternate months reuniting with his family back in Empangeni, every 2nd month for some rest. Jenny and her 2 daughters Helga Sofie and Svanhild will be at iKhaya and knitting in with our staff, volunteers and children, helping with the running of our home . Trygve (13) will be starting school this coming Wednesday at Felixton College to continue his education, locally.
This amazing family arrived at iKhaya Likababa on Monday morning to meet the babies and the staff and to get orientated and to see what needs attention. The very next day they arrived at 'work' and in no time at all, repaired a wooden table in the play room, assembled a trampoline, made a list of missing parts and started the huge task of sorting through our store room, in between playing with our little babe who is too young to be at school. Please pop in to meet this wonderful family, and to see the outworking of their hearts through iKhaya and our children.
