K2 Cluster's 2010 AMTM


Here is just a glimpse of where we are right now. We are at our Annual Missionary Training Meeting in Tshipise, South Africa. We have a team from Bryan, Texas taking care of all 46 missionary kids. We have an actual worship team and have had some wonderful Bible teaching times from Pastor Tim. We leave here on Thursday to head to Johannesburg, South Africa for some R&R and medical appointments for Levi.

We Got It!

We got the contract on the house! This is our new home in Lukulu. Please continue to pray for all aspects of our lives that will be lived out within these walls. Pray for enriching family time. Pray for a lifestyle of ministry. Pray for our neighbors that live around us-that we will become good friends with them and our kids will make new playmates. Pray for our security. Pray that the Lord will continue to open the hearts of the Lozi to be receptive to the Good News. We are so grateful for your prayers. We could never do this without you.

A Day of Sun and Fun

While we are here in Lusaka, one of our missionary kids (Caleb Bowman-2nd from left) had a birthday at the water park, Adventure City. Several of his missionary cousins got to enjoy his day at the park, also. Here they are from left to right: Trent Lewis, Caleb Bowman, Hannah Rodgers, Hadassah, Abby Bowman, Anna Bowman, Zoe and Levi. The kids all had so much fun!

Church in Sefula

This is where we went to church today.  This church is well established but just a month or so ago got their own 'building'.  It was really a wonderful day of worship.  Our Zambian friends worshipped with laughter, smiles and lots of dancing.  In SS, the kids memorized Romans 3:23.  I was in the Kids' Sunday School class and got the first part memorized in Lozi. :)  
Hope you also had a great day of worship!

Our Day Today

Today, we took a trip to Senanga to put a short term missionary friend on the boat to go across the floodplain.  The boat that was supposed to take him was not going to run until he got a full boat which was 17 people.  There was no guarantee that boat was going anywhere today so we went to the Senanga Safari Lodge to wait and decide what to do.  As we were pulling into the lodge, we saw that they give boat rides.  So, thank the Lord, they agreed to take us across the floodplain for a decent price.  So all 7 (driver included) hopped onto a 4 passenger speed boat to cross the mighty Zambezi River.  It was a fun ride.  We all had to wear life jackets that were too big for all of us, especially the kids.  Here are some photos from our day.  
I am learning to try to be prepared as we take trips but I still forget things.  Note to self: bring sunscreen on our next adventure.
