Community, a place we are called to shine like a star in the universe! Being of servant character, sharing in each others joy’s and sorrow’s.
The day started, out with breakfast! The regular oatmeal, delicious omelet, and bread with some fixings. Leaving the CCAP guesthouse, for the job site almost on schedule. The trip still long and very bumpy to the school, but we’re starting to learn the area and the worst bumps that we need to prepare for!
For work today, it was very similar as the past few work days. The walls grew higher, as more bricks were laid. We also each had the opportunity to plant our own tree on the school grounds. Each tree a reminder of the team that was here to help build the new classroom block. Pretty neat!
After lunch we went visiting the CCAP Seminary College, as well as a small health clinic. Learning that it takes 3 years of studying to become an ordained minister, and the need for pastor’s right here in Zambia for the growing church. At the clinic, we saw the primitive conditions and the shortage of materials. Learning that if someone would need to see a doctor with a broken bone, they would need to take an 1.5 hr. bumpy ambulance ride to Lundazi. Makes us thankful for the accessibility of our health care back home.
Back at the guesthouse some jumped in the shower, others enjoyed watching and taking part in some volley ball with some of the locals. We enjoyed another delicious supper of many different things, Dorthy truly out doing herself each day.
Ending the evening with our Bible study, we are challenged on the importance of community. The need for encouragement and support from fellow believers. So that we can grow in a closer walk with our Heavenly Father, shining His light through us in the world
