We have arrived!
We blessed our staff with a “Thank You” meal from Hungry Lion.
Belated Happy Birthdays!
Since we have been gone for over a year, we have failed to celebrate birthdays for our staff. So, we made up for it with a group birthday party…and in true Zambian tradition (where the victim is doused with water on their birthday), we made sure we celebrated in Zambian style.
Karen was not exempt since her birthday was celebrated as we arrived in Zambia. She knew what was coming and expected the worst!
Bible Studies in Mukuni, Mukalahani and Maloni are still going strong – it is amazing how much they have grown!
The Good News Club
The GNC took a month off for a break in school. They started back just as we left off. We now have to teach in 2 sessions on Saturday as they are still observing social distancing. The numbers are still strong and they have grown spiritually over the past year. Our staff does such a great job directing this operation.
Karen’s heart is just too big! She has started working with the Zambian Down Syndrome children.
It is not getting any better – leaving family behind…
In 2008 it was just Karen and myself and our 5 children. Today there are 4 additional spouses and 7 grandchildren. Leaving them behind is getting so much more difficult. Children, grandchildren and aging close friends and family causes much heartache…as we fly off to another country. Prayers are requested!
