Muli Shani from Zambia (a formal hello in Bemba language )
The team departed Dulles airport on Saturday evening. Special thanks to Nick Cargas for being our amazing chauffeur from Linglestown to Dulles .... 5 women plus 11 medical suitcases and 5 personal carry on cases and lots of excitement !!
We met our 6th team member at the airport and after successfully checking in the suitcases with only a few minor weight adjustments we were off to head to security and our gate!
God has once again put together an Amazing team ... small but mighty !!
Our flight took off at 530 pm sat evening and we reached our first destination at 630 pm Sunday ( LONG flight !!)
We had stay over in Johannesburg South Africa for one short nite then off to the airport at 615 am. Boarded our flight to Zambia ... a short and sweet 2 1/2 hour flight! All of our luggage made it safe and sound from US! Thankful and grateful !!
It is now Monday morning around 11 am and we whizzed thru Zambian customs at warp speed! Unheard of!! Thankful and grateful again! Leonard and Rose were waiting to transport us to FCE Kings Highway in Masati . This is our home base until Friday! For me this is like returning to my Zambian home. The people that take care of the team while we are here are some of the most Godly people I have ever met . They have dedicated their lives to serving as Christ served and they radiate God's selfless love. I have been coming To kings highway with my teams for the last 10 years and some of the people who serve here are truly like my brothers and sisters!
We unpacked and ran some practice classes for our team Sara figured out how to make the new portable projector work and the flash drive that Wendy Crane downloaded for us is gonna work perfect! (Thanks Wendy and Reese for all you do for TPM!)
We have felt very welcomed here and will be jumping in tomorrow with full health clinic
For the village school kids and some first aide classes for the staff !
Thanks you for all the thoughts and Prayers!
