Africa Hot - Hotter than ever

Hope 2 - Kyndra's Hearts for Zambia HANDS Team:

The team got up at 7:00 and had breakfast at 7:30. We left for Hoya school at 8:15 and it took a little longer to get there since one of the springs on the vehicle came off. It was a long and bumpy ride and we had to go fairly slowly. Once we got there they took the vehicle away to get fixed.

We had similar jobs as yesterday – lots of mortar mixing and brick laying. It was a very hot day, reaching 37 degrees. After lunch we worked for a couple more hours and then left a little early to go visit Kambia day school to look at the new lab. The school is opening in January and has taken 3 HANDS teams and 3 years to complete. The labs have 18 sinks in each classroom, and there were 2 classrooms.

When we got back to the guest house a few took a quick shower before heading to the local market. We spent about half an hour there among all of the dried fish and clothing. A couple girls bought skirts and one bought some rope that is going to be used to make a swing.

After the market a couple people joined in on the local volleyball game but it gets dark so early here (around 6:30) so it was difficult to see. We all then had supper together – with beef and potatoes which reminded us of home.

Evening devotions were next and then Pastor Nehemiah gave us a brief explanation about what CCAP (Central Church of Africa Presbyteria) is. It was another busy day, but we are looking forward to tomorrow’s excursion and work!

Thanks for your time of service and being a blessing to the Hoya community and the CCAP staff. Take it easy in the heat. Zambia is a wonderful place and I hope that you are able to experience the incredible things God is doing there to further His Kingdom.

I enjoy reading these blogs! There very interesting and it's neat to read about what's going on in Zambia. It does seem very hot there though.
