Snapshots of 20/20

 Sorry but all these pictures were taken with the kids.  I only took a few of the adults and they all ended up blurry.  
We visited an elephant orphanage.

 We also took a field trip the crocodile farm and got to hold snakes.

 We taught the kids how to bargain and then they got to go practice at a local market.

The first part of the program was in Lusaka and after a week we shifted to Petauke to do the rural phase.

 We played games

 read books

 visited a rural market and enjoyed a frita and drink

 This baby was named after me!  She is such a doll!

 The girls all fixed up and no where to go!

 Throughout the whole program we are preparing the kids for their homestay which is at the end of the program.  One thing we do with the kids is take them to an actual village for them walk through and visit with people so they can see what it will be like.
They got to practice pumping water.

 They went inside a hut.

 they made friends

 We also visited a farm and got to see huge pigs.

 We were able to hold some baby rabbits

 and some baby chicks.

One family left on Thursday and the rest left today.  It was a good couple of weeks!  We saw God work in and through each of the participants and even these little mk's!

Volunteer team ministers in Zambia

We are so thankful for friends from our home church in NC coming to minister alongside of us for a little over a week.  They went to a compound and played with kids and shared Christ with them.  They walked through the compound sharing the gospel and inviting people to see the Jesus film.  Unfortunately, the equipment did not work that evening so it had to be postponed until later this month.

This parachute was a big hit!

the choir sang a song and this is how they ended it

 This church is right beside the city trash dump.  

 The team also went out a couple of days to a rural area where they had started some churches in years past.  They did hut to hut evangelism and showed the Jesus film.

 Caroline and Hannah have become such good friends over the past couple of years.  

 The team also ministered in a local orphanage(next blog post) one afternoon.  During the morning they went to another compound and visited a school and went out to visit patients who were real sick.  They were also able to give out one BGR bucket.

The team was also able to squeeze in a quick trip to see Victoria Falls and go on a game drive and boat ride in Chobe, Botswana.  They were blessed to see so many amazing animals!  Here are just a few.
