Today the team packed up, said our goodbyes to all our old and new friends at FCE and began our LONG journey to the western province in a village called Mongu. Shine is our driver and he did an amazing job navigating around goats, trucks, bikes, oxen and the occasional baboon and Impala that would cross in front. We traveled for 14 hours to reach our final destination . Many many giggles and some very dicey potty stops!!!
We have now reached what will be our home for the next 6 days. The village of Mongu is ruled by a King and we will be the first group to bring the program of HBB a to this part of the country . We are excited about being the first to break ground here as a medical/nursing educational team. The province has been somewhat closed to "outsiders" and the King has approved our Coming. We will join in a local church service tomorrow and will be dressed in the village garb. Hoping to send many pics tomorrow!! Keep the thoughts and prayers coming!
My team is working so well together and we have had many blessings along the way!
