Today is day 9 of the mission. We all met around 7 to take a "power walk" and enjoy the fresh air. Leonard filled us in on some of the history of kasama and we spoke with some grounds men working on the original provincial office's home to prepare it for the centennial festival.
We the returned to our hotel to have breakfast and to change Into chitangas for the church service . We attended the Evangelical Church in Zambia. About a 15 min drive from the hotel. The worship team was so full of energy and amazing voices! Even in their own native language it was very apparent they were worshiping Jesus. After the worship singing Leonard read scripture and the message was on Jonah and how we all have a bit of Jonah in us. The pastor's take home points were:
1) God is a God of all flesh , all tribes and nations
2) God is a God of second chances
3) He always sends a warning before destruction because His desire is for all to repent and show humility and be obedient.
4) We are called to be humble, responsible and committed to what God is calling us to do.
I then had a brief opportunity to share what TPM had been doing in their country and the appreciation we felt for the hospitality of everyone. We were offered cookies and soda pop and then set up for our clinics. Marge and Michele did eye glass readers for many people in need, Amy did BP screening and Sara did some nutrition counseling. Linda and I ran the first aid clinic and lots of children came to be seen and hang out with us!! Lots of fun and they really enjoyed looking at our pictures and singing songs. Then we were off to market to see, and smell the sites.All in all a great day!
Tomorrow Tiny People Matter board our Tiny little plane to head back to Ndola for the nite.
