CENTRAL OTAGO RECRUITMENT AGENCY
Heading to Africa: Cromwell woman Anita Muir will be heading to Botswana in January, with her husband Daniel
and one-year-old daughter, Esther, to do missionary work for Serving in Mission.
Family on a mission
Three years of aid work in Botswana ahead
By EMMA DAWE
It's a world away from Crom-
well, but the southern African
country of Botswana will soon
be home for Cromwell woman
Anita Muir and her family.
Mrs Muir, her husband Daniel
and one-year-old daughter,
Esther, will be relocating perma-
nently to the Third World
country in January, where the
couple will work for missionary
organisation Serving in Mis-
They will be based in the
country's capital, Gaborone, and
will work alongside Flying
Mission Botswana, the only air
ambulance in the country.
Mr Muir will work as an ICT
administrator and Mrs Muir
was hoping to work with
orphans with AIDS.
Mrs Muir said Botswana was
experiencing the second worst
AIDS epidemic in the world
with more than one in three
people living with the disease.
The couple had experience
living in Third World countries
-- Mr Muir and his family lived
in South America for four years,
while Mrs Muir lived in
Burkina Faso, in west Africa,
with her family when she was
two until she was 14.
They will live in Botswana for
three years before returning
home for six months for a
compulsory break where they
will have medical and health
checks and continue to seek
support from the community.
They will then return and
continue their work.
Mrs Muir said she was excited
about their new life, but also a
bit sad about leaving her family
The couple leave in January and
until then will spend their
weekends visiting churches,
youth groups and other gather-
ings to talk about their move to
Botswana and to seek support
for their work.
All things Scot at anniversary
By JESSICA MADDOCK
Bagpipes, haggis, kilts and all
things Scottish will be on
display when Bannockburn
commemorates the 700th anni-
versary of the battle at its
namesake next year.
The two-day battle -- on June 23
and 24, 1314 -- between the
Scottish and the English was
won by the Scots and is
considered to be one of the most
decisive battles of the First War
of Scottish Independence.
One of the organisers of the
Emmitt, said a five-day festival
was proposed from June 20 to 24,
which coincided with the 2014
Queenstown Winter Festival.
The owner of Cromwell's new
Highlands Motorsport Park,
Tony Quinn, was of Scottish
descent and was keen to support
the festival. It was likely some of
the events would be held at the
park, with others taking place at
Bannockburn, Mr Emmitt said.
Five days of activities had been
proposed, but organisers wanted
to hear community members'
ideas. These could be emailed to
Among the events proposed was
a ''battle'' between Scottish and
English ''soldiers,'' using flour
bombs and paper swords and
carrying flags and banners.
It would be preceded by
traditional Highland games,
including haggis hurling, caber
tossing, stone carrying, mead
sculling and goblet obstacle
racing. The significant influence
Scottish writers and poets have
had on the modern world would
be discussed at a traditional
Scottish high tea, and The
Longest Scottish Table Lunch
was proposed, with a haggis
ceremony, highland dancers
and porridge wrestling.
Two permanent monuments
commemorating the battle were
also being considered -- the
National Trust for Scotland had
developed a logo representing
the battle, where each letter of
the word Bannockburn reflected
an aspect of the fight. Mr
Emmitt said adding the logo to
the existing Heart of the Desert
sign at the Bannockburn Bridge
had been proposed.
There was also a suggestion to
copy a monument at Dunedin's
Signal Hill Lookout, where a
brass plaque on a rock reads
''This stone, hewn from the rock
on which Edinburgh Castle
stands, was given as a centen-
nial memorial token by the
people of Edinburgh to signify
the bond which forever binds
the cities of Edinburgh and
Dunedin. Auld Lang Syne. 3
Mr Emmitt said organisers
hoped to get a rock from
Bannockburn or Stirling Castle
and place it beneath the Heart of
the Desert sign.
