Mettmenstetten, 4th January 2018. The report of 17-year-old Lena reaches us, who completed her two-week work placement in the Protestant guest house and estate in Swiss Mettmenstetten. The experiences she could make there were extremely various: In the first week she was mainly entrusted with jobs on the farm, for instance. This included helping with farming, gardening, in the farm shop and preparing the guest house and the meals. In the second week she was allowed to participate in preparing and realizing a programme for kids in the context of a mission conference. As the children came partly from Germany, partly from Africa, this was a highly interesting and enriching experience for all participants.
