If you have ever visited Walvis Bay on the Namibian coast, you know that it is surrounded by dunes and desert. Although these are the coastal town's most beautiful attractions, locals are all too aware of the struggle that arises when sandstorms start blowing sand all over.
Members of the Narraville congregation have become used to the church yard being a barren piece of earth with dust blowing into the building. However, this changed last week when the Rector and his helpers established a beautiful rock garden to cover up the sandy yard.
After toiling for hours, the dust turned into decorative gravel and succulent plants; and the rock garden became a joyful reality.
Said the Rector, Priest Stanley Norris: "The maintenance project actually still forms part of the church's clean up campaign, which started in March. The added benefit is that the rock garden will also save municipal charges, a part of creating a beautiful environment for our members and visitors."
