Various Activities of Caryl and Michael Stanley
During Michael's and Caryl's travels, their
constant companion has been their display, which has now been in
nine states, including Ohio and Oklahoma.
Every Tuesday morning before school, Michael brings a message to the assembled
students of Mntwan'ungamizizwe High School.
The messages are Bible
based and deal with issues like developing positive relation-ships,
setting goals for yourself, maintaining your spiritual life, AIDS
awareness, and occasionally he is able to add an evangelistic message.
Caryl is facilitating a small group at a Life Skills
camp for 7th Grade pupils from Magog Primary School. One teacher
said that even the naughtiest boys in the class behaved like angels
during the camp.
Michael brought the Sunday morning message for the Life Skills camp for the
7th Grade pupils from Magog Primary School. The students did not

half of the 50 students responded by coming forward at the
teaches Life Skills to the 7th Grade at the Magog Primary School.
At most funerals Michael would never mention AIDS as that would
effectively be an accusation against the family - a serious insult.
But here at the funeral of Bongi Shabalala he could speak openly
about it, because she had admitted publicly that she
was suffering from AIDS. Notice the red ribbon symbol for AIDS on
her coffin. Consequently, Michael could preach about God's answer to the pandemic.
