Today was our last full day of work! The majority of the work was parging. We finished the second and almost completed the third room. We also took down the forms and straightened nails. It was a good cool morning but as the day went on so did heat. We’ve had a lot of help from the community and it’s been really good working together. Towards the end of the day Collins had planned a fun activity for us called the Zambian Express! We had to follow a map into a local village and successfully complete a number of tasks. These tasks included carrying buckets of water on our heads, harvesting tobacco leaves, doing a local dance and riding an ox cart back to the school. It was fun being able to interact with the villagers and getting a glimpse of their daily lives. We were all winners and rewarded with cookies after supper. Again we finished the evening with a great meal, devotions and a refreshing amount of rain.
Please pray for safety as we finish up the last bit of work we have to do and for the workers who will be finishing the school. Keep the community in your prayers as they face their daily challenges.
Pray for safe travels tomorrow as we head out in the afternoon to the game park.
