Update-September 23, 2010

Last weekend David and I attended the Zambia Mission Board meeting in Searcy. We were delighted to see many friends and co-workers--some of whom we had never seen on American soil. The board meeting was encouraging as we heard reports of the summer medical mission and made plans for the future.

This week I am frantically getting ready for my trip to Zambia. I leave next Monday, September 27, and will be gone for three weeks. I have several areas I hope to work on during my stay at Namwianga:

  • I will be going out with Rodgers Namuswa to train Sunday School teachers. We will return to do a refresher course at some of the places we first visited in 2006.
  • I will be visiting the Mission schools to interview students for sponsorship for next year. I also hope to do some teacher training in the schools.
  • I’ll be working with Rajiv, the assistant sponsorship coordinator, and others on the sponsorship committee to do some planning for 2011.
  • I am going with the Harding in Zambia group on their trip to Mumena. David and I led that trip last year, and I’m thrilled that I get to be a part of it again this year.
  • And then of course I’ll get to spend some time with Jason and George, the students at GBCC, and other friends and co-workers.

I would appreciate your prayers for safe travel and wisdom. I’ll try to post several times during my stay if the internet cooperates.
