All I can really say is “Unbelievable”! God is good! This has been one of the most wonderful things that I have experienced. The elephants, baboons, Victoria Falls, leopard, wart hogs, etc… were all great to see and witness. I have to say that bungee jumping was the craziest thing that I have ever done. You have to be a little out of wack when you pay money to jump off a perfectly good bridge. They are moments that I will always treasure, but they truly pale in comparison to what God is doing in the lives of our team and the people of Zambia. God is truly at work. I have heard one of the most wonderful sounds that I have ever heard. When the Zambian children and adults sing, they sing to the Lord and the harmony is amazing. This afternoon before our second activity session the children had song and memory verse competitions. Each church that is involved in the VBS has been practicing for countless hours memorizing chapters in the Bible. Not verses but chapters. They come in the tabernacle (the place where we all meet for teaching) dancing slow in a line sing memory verses. Once they get up on the stage they will recite partial chapters and some full chapters. To see these children truly hide God’s word in their heart was not only inspiring but also convicting.
It is hard to believe that we are this far into our trip. God has allowed me to build some eternal relationship that I will always be thankful for, adults and children. One thing that I know is I have seen joy in the midst of poverty. We think that we come and teach others in foreign lands but if we are honest with ourselves it is really the other way around.
Continue to pray for the work that God is doing in the beautiful land of Zambia. I can assure you that we are all coming back changed and closer to Jesus. Thank you all for you prayers.
In Christ We Win,
