A few weeks ago we had a team pouring the slab for our new classroom. It's incredible that we have people from all over the world gathering at uVillage to carry out the vision of our Bring Down the Wall project.

"The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts." -C.S. Lewis

“Even the wildest dreams have to start somewhere. Allow yourself the time and space to let your mind wander and your imagination fly.”

“Your ordinary acts of love and hope point to the extraordinary promise that every human life is of inestimable value.”
- Desmond Tutu

A huge thank you to YWAM Orlando for sending this awesome team to work with us for a few weeks!

These guys got to lead some really foundational projects that are happening at TTH. A couple highlights included teaching the first of many mini DTS's that focus on discipling and empowering our local youth, and also finishing the foundation and the slab for our new uVillage Classroom.

Thank you guys for investing your time, energy, and labor. We'd take you back any day!

The Schelldorfer Family, from Switzerland, spent 4 months working alongside us. We're grateful for all of their investment. It was really special to have the whole family helping out! Being here for so long allowed them to work in nearly every project and do some much-needed background work. Besides helping build a house, leading tea times, baking Swiss bread, and helping at the After School Programs, they also invested a lot at the uVillage Campus. They cooked and served food for our short-term teams, did a lot of important electrical wiring, sewed some gorgeous couch cushions, and helped in both our hospitality and base investment department. Besides all of that, it was fun to have 3 kids running around our property and bringing a light-hearted spirit. They brought their entire selves to the table.

Thank you for serving out of your strengths and working with your whole heart! We miss you guys!

Today is National Women's Day! We could not run our After School Programs without the dedication and hard work of our ladies. Thank you for all the hard work you put into caring for your communities. We love you! #nationalwomensday #tenthousandhomes

A few weeks ago YWAM Bridges of Life from France sent a team to volunteer with us. Here's a look back at some of the projects they oversaw while they were here. A huge thank you to this team for taking initiative and helping us with some foundational first steps in some projects around our base!

This week uVillage has been running a 4-day Discipleship Training School camp, facilitated by the @YWAMOrlando team. This camp was geared towards passionate young South Africans. Some in our area may not be able to commit to a full 5-month discipleship school, but we still want to give them an opportunity to learn, grow, and be leaders within their areas of influence. There have been 12 students from nearby townships in attendance. In the morning they have a class time, followed by an afternoon outreach where they invest in their communities through helping at the After School Programs.
