Going To Johannesburg

Levi and I leave tomorrow for Johannesburg, South Africa. He will have his oral motor skills evaluated on Monday then on Tuesday, he will be admitted into the hospital to do a hearing test under sedation. After these two tests, I am to sit down with our Personnel Director to discuss how we can get the best care for Levi. Yesterday, I got in touch with a Speech Language Pathologist who has a private practice in Lusaka!! Most of her clients are children and she has been practicing for 14 years. She was very kind and very willing to help us with Levi. We do not know what options we will be given to us for Levi but my heart is definitely leaning toward seeing this SLP every 2 months or so while we work with Levi at home in between his appointments. There could be a wide variety of options, so I pray that the very best one will be found for Levi - no matter what that means for us as a family. Please pray for us next week.
We could do nothing without your prayers.

Please Pray!

We have a Volunteer Team that is scheduled to come to Zambia on June 5th. Since their flight is with British Airways, they are not sure if their flight will be cancelled or rescheduled or what. I know that we all have been planning about a year for this trip. Please pray that their specific flight will not be affected by the British Airways Strike.

Manuscript Theology

We have just learned about something new. It has been coined 'Manuscript Theology' or in other words, copying the Bible. It's very easy. You get a good notebook, a pen and the Bible and start copying the Word of God. So far, I have copied the Book of James and now am copying Ephesians. This is a great way to slow down and really savor each inspired word of the Lord. One of our friends has already copied the whole New Testament.
It's so easy. Why don't YOU try it?

Ki Maliha!

Winter has come here in the Western Province of Zambia. It was 57 degrees this morning when we woke up. That is cold when all your windows are open. Here the kids are bundled up to ward off that morning chill. Yesterday, I actually wore a jacket until about 10:30am.

Camping Out at Sefula Women's Conference

Here are some of the ladies that attended the conference. One church had already left. They studied the book of Ruth for 3 days.
Just a man who went by the church. They use dugout canoes as sleds to transport things. They slide quite easily on the sand.
This is where the meetings were held. We pitched our tent right under this tree.
