Lots of Excitement…

  |   Uncategorized   |   1 Comment

There has been lots of great progress and excitement the last couple days! We have completed all the sponsorship updates and letters except for those children who have been absent this week, and the translators, the Mulando family and I had a celebratory dinner at a local restaurant to celebrate the great week!

Another reason for celebration was the arrival of Brady and Liz! They arrived safely, and in fact we are better off now that they’re here. The water and electricity had unexpectedly gone out in the last couple days, but almost as soon as they arrived they both came back on! They have certainly been lucky charms!

Today we are heading the the Slave Tree, where there used to be slave auctions to hear a bit about the history of slavery in Zambia from Teacher Ng’ome. Then we will head to Kantolombo Graveyard and an HIV/AIDS hospice, where we will see firsthand the effects of HIV/AIDS on the population here. It will be an eye-opening day, and Brady, Liz and I are ready to learn.

Well, we are about ready to head out. Talk to you all soon!

    Joann,
    If possible, could you get more info on hospice? I’d love to know more about it. I’m enjoying your posts!
