Our good friend Isaia is a priest in Kraaifontein. He often does good work and leaves regularly to Bloemfontein to sell our stoves and pellets. He went there in September to the Macufe festival.This is a well known festival where a lot of nationalities come together with many performances. He brought a hundred stoves to the festival.
