The fort soon became a shop to sell things to the neighbourhood kids. I don't know what it is, but our kids like making money. Bradley told Brian after he had to give some money back to a friend at school-(Brad hadn't taken the money-it seemed his friend was just being sweet), "Dad I don't know why I want money, but I just love it...Oops we need to work on that one. "For the love of money is a root af all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." 1 Tim 6:10.
Not long ago they made these twirly kites out of paper and string and sold them. And who knows why, but kids came and bought them. They also made telescopes out of empty toilet rolls and those went quickly too. A cardboard gun that shoots elastics, puppets out of paper and toothpicks and a sword made up of a bundle of sticks all taped up, were just some of their wares up for grabs. When next you're in Lilongwe be sure to stop by the "bp shop" for a purchase you'll never forget:)
