Naartjie Tree for Tracy
Tracy Singleton, who works with pastors in our leadership training program, had a birthday recently. Ian and Ireen worked hard on home-made cards to deliver to him. With their cards in hand they walked across the lane and knocked at his back door. They were pretty dissapointed to find out that Tracy had left home to run some errands. Andrea reassured them that they could try again later.
Tracy loves working outdoors on his garden and trimming trees, so we thought getting him a tree would be just the perfect B-day gift. The little tree in the picture is a naartjie tree. It produces a soft, loose-skinned South African citrus fruit. The naartjie name is Afrikaans but is also known as a mandarin or tangerine fruit outside of South Africa. Ian and Ireen couldn’t have been more proud about the arrangement. Happy B-day Tracy!
