Back from the Trip

We just got home a couple of hours ago after nine days on the road.  What an incredible group of college students!  They were wonderful travelers who made the trip a fantastic experience!  There will be many stories for blog fodder in days to come, but here are a few teasers:

I forgot the sleeping bags, so we had to turn around and go back for them the first morning.
The bus had two flat tires within the first 24 hours.

Our original bus developed a major problem on Sunday, so a Namwianga mechanic and the transportation director drove over 16 hours straight to bring us another bus for the return trip.  They then repaired the first bus and drove it back.

We all stayed remarkably healthy the entire trip.

We met some incredible American missionaries, sang with some great Zambian Christians,and  worshiped with some very enthusiastic Congolese refugees. 

We've been up close and personal with a vervet monkey, a 2-ton hippo, and a bunch of chimpanzees.   

Details and photos to come.
