The building project that was done at Mphophomeni was a great success and in the space of a week the Destiny Leadership Academy boys were able to level the ground, put up the structure and cement the foundations of the structure. It was a huge learning experience for most of the gents because many of us had never built a church in this sense.
Despite the super early mornings and late evenings, the boys definitely bonded in a way that cannot be described in words and we all got a taste of how challenges can be overcome when we stick together and do everything unto His name.
A few weeks later it was time to lay the concrete slab and so all the boys mustered up the strength we had regained from our short rest to continuously move what felt like 15 tons of cement. We met amazing people like Owen (Lindo) and worked closely with Bongani (Site captain).
All in all, the mighty Mphophomeni experience was great success and did great things for both our team and the Mphophomeni site.
