Off to Zambia


Greg (my hubby) and a friend are taking off for Zambia on Sunday evening. Flight leaves Monday morning--they are looking forward to that L-O-N-G flight. :) While there, they will be checking on some projects, doing some admin stuff but most importantly, building relationships.

I must admit that I wish that I was going with them. Amazing place and people.

Greg on his first trip to Zambia with Lucy...She was upset about not getting to go on a field trip that the group sponsored. This trip to Zambia was what inspired him to adopt.

We emailed and asked the village school (this is a squatter's village just outside of Lusaka) what they would like for the guys to try to bring. I am always humbled by their answers....reading books for the children (I'm a homeschooler...guess how many extras I have laying around!) crayons, pencils, teaching aids, Bibles, balls, science equipment (those of you who know me well, know that request touched my heart!)

The basic every day needs of a school that I have extras of floating around. I walked around my house today going "I don't need this, or this, or this" My kids walked in their room and began pulling out extras. Rachel said "I have lots of books that I don't need."

We were talking at dinner after Ab finished praying his very long heartfelt prayer. He told us "When I woke up when I first came home (he had fallen asleep and I carried him to my bed and slept with him) I woke up and thought I was in castle." I usually don't look at my home and see a castle.

It IS all in the eye of the beholder isn't? Tonight, I see a castle.

  1. WOW....a castle- so true for all of us. Praying for him and the missions to be done, and for you as you stay at home too!
