Locals on mission for Swaziland children

Poverty poor ... but still a land of celebration for life, song and dance. People live in sod and tin huts not too far from elephants, warthogs and giraffes. Some larger cities have shopping similar to Rapid City, but outlying areas have rows of tin and open barter shops. The poor are poverty poor.

LeeAnn Knutson, Marlene Urban and Curt Arthur worked in a school in Swaziland, southern Africa, as part of a mission trip from August 16 through 26.

Urban said, "Traveling to Swaziland to meet my sponsored child, play with all the children and work at the projects was a tremendous privilege. The need is so great." Children are sponsored by individuals, families and groups through the Mission of Mercy organization.

"We worked in a school, a care point, where kids as young as five carried younger siblings on their backs most of the day," said Knutson.
