Today was a day that we were looking forward to with some anticipation. We were at the South Lilongwe National Park! We started our ride at 6:00 am at first light. The drive started off slow for the first bit, but then we obsrved a couple of giraffes and an elephant or 2. Then the the driver got a call from his colleague that they found some lions. It seemed that our driver took his time stopping to look at some more elephants and a dazzle of zebras. Finally we made our way back to where the lions had been seen. We were surprised to see a pride of lions from less than 50’ eating a freshly killed buffalo. There was 1 male, 4 females, and some cubs. We sat and watched nature up close as they just ignored us.
Later we were able to see many more animals in God's amazing creation. It was a nice way to end our time here. Shortly after our return from our game drive, we began the long journey we will have to get home. We had a 10 hour drive from the National Park to Lusaka. We arrived at our rooms around 9:30pm. The team is doing good, although a few have upset stomachs. Nothing serious at this point.
Please continue to pray for health and safety as we begin the long journey home today and fly out of Lusaka just before 4 pm.
We give thanks for Gods watchful eye on us and his protection through out this trip. We also are grateful for all your support. It means a lot.
