Closing Ceremony

Vineland Free Reformed HANDS Team:

 Hey, it is our last night in the Lundazi guest house and we are all excited about going to church tomorrow and the safari on Monday!  

This morning one last time,we piled into the trucks and rode to the secondary school to do some parging on the brick walls that the group made.  For most of us it was great to see some nice smooth sections.  

Again we had  the delicious traditional lunch of fried chicken, noodles, tomato sauce, nshima  and cabbage, all cooked over two small fires! Our cooks were amazing!! 

As with all projects that come to the end, we needed a group photo in front of the dormitory wall.  Rachel graced us with making a beautiful sign on the wall -- Vineland Hands 2019.  The closing ceremony contained lots of speeches. The school community expressed their thanks many times for our efforts to help build a dormitory and the hope they had for making an environment where the teenage girls would be safe. They urged us to remember that we all serve the same God, through Jesus Christ no matter where we are in His world. The chairman of the board encouraged to leave the bad things about Zambia in Zambia and spread the good things we experienced at home and around the world.

Only a few more blog stories to share!  This one is from Diana

It's remarkable how much was accomplished during your time in Zambia. Enough to leave your signature behind on the walls and forever in their hearts! Well done good and faithful servants!! Enjoy the safari :-) .
