Day 2 of our trip

Drayton 2014 HANDS Team:

The second day of our trip dawned bright and (not so) early. We walked to the town to exchange some of our dollars to Kwach's, the Zambian currency. Rosa the bus, accompanied by her driver, picked us up for the trip to the Mwasa Day High School for the (usually) 30 minute trip. We were driving along quite nicely, enjoying the sight's, wen  we were startled by a loud BANG. Poor Rosa had blown a tire. There we were, on a dirt road, in Africa, with a very flat tire. Thankfully, Philemon, our guide from CCAP called for help. We decided to start walking the 7 km journey to the school and made it part way when a mini-van driven by the people Philemon called picked some of us up and drove us the rest of the way. God can make something good out of every situation, because if we hadn't had the flat tire, we would have missed the mill grinding corn into flour for one of the Zambian staple food's, Nshima (see "Recipes From Abroad" on EduDeo's Pinterest page). Soon, we were all arrived at Mwase Day High School, and experiencing a wonderful welcoming ceremony by the school, it's board and the community. It was humbling to have all of these wonderfull people thanking us in such an awesome way. They truly sang and danced with their entire being & soul.

I love it that God arranged a flat tire; what a great way to not only see the making of flour but to experience the random chaos of life in Zambia :)
