A Home Coming

As we prepare to return back to the States this coming Friday, we were able to celebrate another home coming of sorts.  Dailes Zimba, a widow with 3 children, has been working for us ever since we landed in Zambia.  She's been there through thick and thin and has been a great source of encouragement to us as we have sought to serve the Zambian people.

She recently shared with Kerri that she had two wishes for her life that she has now seen fulfilled.  One was that all of her children would finish school.  Her youngest, Milton, is in grade 10 now and is scheduled to finish within the next few years.  The second was that she would have a place to call her own.

As Kerri and I thought of ways that we could help Dailes flourish after we left Zambia, we felt like we needed to also help her with finding her own place.  We truly could not have done this without the generous gifts from some of you.  Thank you for helping us bless this dear friend!

Now that she has moved into her new home, we can turn our attention towards our own home coming. We look forward to seeing many of you after we get back and get settled.  Please continue to pray for us as we transition.  Everyone has been fighting one kind of sickness or another and we need to be healthy to board the plane on Friday.  Pray for health and safety in travel.  See you on the other side!
