Ellie Moran reports on how a group of young Christians from Glasgow will help transform lives in South Africa.
House building with COSY

WHEN my colleague, Karen Wallace, approached me with potential for a trip to South Africa I leapt at the chance.

A few days and two team members later that possibility became a reality. Many of you may have heard or read about the trip that was undertaken by a large group of young people from Glasgow Presbytery last year as part of the ‘Year of Young People’. Next summer I will be joining members of CoSY (Church of Scotland Youth) Glasgow as we embark on our own adventure. We will be travelling to a township near Johannesburg to build a house for a family in need. Amongst other things we will be building, from scratch, a house, running a children’s club for anywhere up to 200 local children and attending a Sunday morning service in a Zulu church.
