Safari Day!!!! 0 comments

Our Team:

Today was Safari day!! We left Lundazi at 7:30 am after saying goodbye to the people there: the kitchen staff, Dorothy and Christabel, and the project manager Moffat who we have had lots of fun with. We rode in a bigger van to the safari camp, it felt like luxury not having to squeeze ourselves in the tiny van anymore! The road to the safari camp was mostly paved and it was a beautiful drive, going through mountainous areas and seeing more of rural Zambia.

Dec 1 2013 Blog 

Had a restful Sunday today...we went to the English Service once again at CCAP at 8:30 and stayed for a while for the 2nd service which is in Tambuka. Because it was World Aids Day, the sermon was on the stigma which is attached to HIV/AIDS and compared to the old testament leprosy cases. Then the minister talked of Jesus' healing of the lepers and how God has given wisdom to the doctors and health professionals for treatment and education and care for HIV/AIDS patients. God and doctors can work together. We were once again able to participate in the service through scripture reading, prayers, and singing.

Dedication Day 6 comments

Today started out like many of the others this week although we left for work a bit later than normal. We got to the project site without incident, but only worked for the morning because today was the day for the school dedication. We have most of the walls raised to window height for the whole school. Henry only fell down once, and proceeded to pull Philemon down as well. Then the rest of the boys had to tussle around a bit, much to the amusement of the bricklayers.

Well, day nine began at a gas station where we purchased 4 liters of gas, and a trip to the home depot (well....Zambia's version anyway!).  We began our journey out to Molozi where we were introduced to a community school.
