Zambian Children

Yesterday when I went to Chainda II Baptist church there weren't any women there at first. While I sat in the church all alone waiting, a group of children came up. There were 14 children in all ranging from 3-11. They sang many songs for me and then I taught them some songs. They really liked Father Abraham and Zacchaeus because of the motions that you use. I also taught them Miss Mary Mack and then they taught me some of their little songs where they clap their hands too. Two women ended up coming but we decided to just wait until next week to do the lesson when more women could be there. I ended up staying for 1 1/2 hours just playing with the kids. It was a lot of fun!

This video is of the kids singing their "ABC's" like they do in Zambia. The tune is quite different than what we sing in America.

I emailed you about Zambia. These pictures remind me of the schools I visited, esp. in the "harbor" district of Lusaka.
