Last work day

Hope 3 HANDS Team:

Saturday started off as a normal day of work at Mphamba. It was hot again, but, this being our last day, we only worked until 11:00 am. We took some time to rest and had our farewell service in the afternoon. We had a small group of students and teachers, also workers and our team members.
Some of the highlights was listening to some young girls recite some memory work and some grade 1-3 girls do a reading. We also had a grade six girl thank us in her farewell speech. It was good to have some closing remarks  by the PTA chairperson and Reverend Nehimia. We also had a women's choir come and sing and lead us in a dance.  We said good bye to the group and had the choir come right to the bus and shake hands with team members before we left.
 Had another trip to the barber and seem to have a gained and lost a team member, because nobody recognizes him here!
Dorothy prepared a local delicacy for us to try this evening. Most of the team tried it, but a few could not be convinced!
 Tomorrow we will have church in the guest house and then head to the South Luangwa National Park, before we head home.

Sounds like you've all made some great connections to the people in the community. Praying for your team as you begin your journey back home tomorrow!
