Traditional Dances

We went to Mbonisweni a couple of weeks ago and none of the kids were there! They said it was because there were traditional dances going on. We heard them nearby so we went to watch them. As we were walking back, they told us why they were doing the dances. You see, they hold circumcision camps for the teenage boys and girls. From what I understand, they don’t have a choice. They have to go. They take them away for a few months. I don’t know all that they do but they do circumcise them. We’ve known kids who are forced to go against their will. I guess after their time away they come back and do this traditional dance throughout the community. Please pray for these kids. Thinking of girls getting circumcised horrifies me and circumcising teenage boys with the same knife horrifies me also. Another way AIDS is getting spread…
