Lessons from South Africa: Get Up and Do the Work!

Welcome to my series all about our recent family trip to South Africa in July. I’m recounting some of our favorite experiences, lessons we learned, travel tips, and some of the most memorable stories and takeaways. To read all of the posts in this series, click here.

One of my favorite places to visit on our trip to South Africa was the Angels of Grace Day Care Centre. We hadn’t been there before and it was this adorable centre run by a beautiful woman named, Sinah.

They warned us before we went in that some of the little kids would likely cry because they aren’t used to seeing white people. But while there were definitely some kids who cried, others were so happy and willing to let us hold them!

I loved watching my kids get to love on these precious kiddos.

My heart just melted seeing my girls connect with these babies and toddlers!

The buildings are so well kept up and you could tell that the workers truly loved the kids and the kids had such a connection with them.

had recently hosted a work day with people from local churches and they had painted the buildings in these bright colors and fun designs!

These are their current toilets. Sinah is making the bricks and they are slowly building a new bathroom for the kids.

Sinah was such an inspiring woman. Not only does she love on these kids so well, she also keeps her centre in tip-top shape and made all of the bricks for all of the buildings herself!

Here she is showing us the new bathrooms being built — with the bricks she made.

As I saw her energy and zest for life and how she makes the most of everything, even though she has very little financial resources, I was intrigued why she would be so motivated to run this centre, keep it so immaculate, work so hard to make a difference in this poor community, make bricks, and oversee building projects.

So I asked her something like, “What motivates you? Why are you doing this?”

She looked at me and matter of factly said, “There’s work to be done so I get up and do the work.”

Ya’ll, we need more people like Sinah in this world.

People who don’t sit around and wait for things to be handed to them.

People who don’t complain about how hard their life is or how unfair it is or how little they have.

People who seize the opportunity — no matter how little — in front of them and run with it.

People who are willing to put in the hard, hard work to make a difference.

My life will forever be impacted as a result of meeting Sinah. And I’m so grateful that we can have a little part in coming alongside and supporting her through .
