Today is Saturday, June 27th. It has been a long but good week here since we arrived on Wednesday. We settled in just in time to pack everything for the Rescue Units. Today we are heading out to the first Rescue Unit which is about three hours away. Some of the team have had colds and sniffles from adjusting to the cold here as opposed to Boot Camp, but we are healthy otherwise. We are staying warm, we made a trip to town to get blankets and “head socks” for the team, and we got a lot of food that we are taking with us for our three weeks away from the base here. We have very much enjoyed spending time with the staff families and students here, and also sitting in on their evening devotions. When the students began singing their worship songs, we just couldn’t stand still and we couldn’t hold back the tears. What a phenomenal joyful noise unto the Lord it was. We are blessed more and more in different ways here every day.
We are heading out here pretty soon, and TK is bringing his computer so that we will be able to send reports, and he said we will try to get network out there. If we are unable to get it, he said we will make trips into town.
Once again, we are so so thankful for the Petersens and how helpful and understanding and wise they are for us as leaders and for the team as a whole. We feel blessed to be a part of this team and to be chosen to serve the Lord here in Zambia.
Blessings to you all as second Boot Camp starts!
