How do you get to Bible study?

Well, when there are no cars available, this is how we do it! Bible study is held weekly on our neighbor's farm and often we white mommies can be seen trucking it on four-wheelers to get there. You should see the looks we get from the locals walking along the road - especially with Elise being 9 months pregnant! Fun times in the bush! (unless, of course, it rains!)

5 Years in Zambia!

(If you are receiving this post via email, please GO HERE to view the slideshow)

This post is a long time in coming.  This week officially marked 5 years since we first arrived in Zambia as a family.  A lot has happened over that time: Ellie's Birth, Kerri's Stroke, Birthdays, Thomas's Adoption, Change of Ministry, etc.  There have been many good times and quite a few hard times.  But God is, continues to be and will always be faithful!

Thank you for all of your support, prayers, encouragement, advice, help and love.  Without many of you, we never would have lasted this long.  This slideshow is truly a testimony to HIS and your faithfulness to us in fulfilling His calling.  And to this end we say Thank You!

Table for One

So, on Monday I headed up to Lusaka to meet with the mechanic. The plan was to get our Land Rover, make sure everything was running properly and show it to a few perspective buyers. Well, plans are just that, plans. And plans in Zambia don't usually as smoothly as plans made elsewhere.

Hence, it's now Tuesday evening and I still haven't picked the car up from the mechanic. Kerri and the kids were expecting daddy home tonight, but now it looks like it will be tomorrow. Another opportunity to say TIA (This is Africa).

I do have to say that eating out by yourself is rather boring. Wishing that Kerri was with me right now!
