We arranged to hold it in the Mayor's conference hall. As expected we needed flexibility, a sense of humor and adaptability. First example...Leonard said, "Melissa you need to write the Mayor's speech." This was on the way in the van to the graduation!!! Karen and I put our heads together and wrote the BEST SPEECH EVER! And guess what??? They broadcasted it on Zambia National News. No kidding!!!
The graduation was amazing and such a day of celebration for everyone. Matt took pictures of every person receiving their certificate and shaking the Deputy Mayor’s hand. We printed the pictures during the ceremony and gave each graduate a picture, certificate and brand new stethoscope!
Thank you for your prayers,
Melissa and Team Africa
