And Another Report From Zimbabwe

11667396_10153003193228457_335060399694288300_nWe are almost done with our time in Zimbabwe and we have fallen in love with the children here and seen the deep need this country has for medical care. Saturday our team traveled to Victoria Falls on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border. We were impressed by its natural beauty and we excited to see a vivid double rainbow over the falls. The train ride to Vic Falls took 18 hours so we decided to take a bus on the way back which only took five. Between these hours of sight-seeing and travel, we enjoyed the tourist town, buying souvenirs and eating “American” food. 

We have almost run out of eye glasses which means we have given out around 900 pairs eyeglasses this trip. Today we went to a primary school that included some deaf and blind students. Hordes of children grabbed our arms and wouldn’t let go. They loved taking photos with us. We did a presentation of puppets and singing. 

We are so excited to see you in two weeks and share our stories with you. God bless 

This has been an amazing opportunity, sharing the gospel and God’s love with the people of Zimbabwe. It’s amazing to see their eyes light up when you give them the right pair of glasses or speak to them in Ndebele. I and everyone else have learned so much more about God and ourselves this past month and are all excited to return and share our experiences with you. -Inkose ilibusese, Jonathon Hughes 

I think the best part of the summer has been getting to know everyone and having all of these life-long relationships that I’ll be able to keep long after Debrief ends.  -Madison Williams
