Homestays-Life for 3 days in the Village

This past weekend the participants packed up enough for 3 days and headed out to stay with a Zambian family for a few days. They stayed in their huts, ate their food, and worked in their fields. They got to experience African culture up close! They all seemed to enjoy their stay with their families. Below are some pics. from a couple of their homestays so you can see some of what they did.

The Mullicans are all packed and heading to their homestay.

Several in our group got to help build a storage bin for maize.

Many pounded groundnuts, beans, or maize.
