Still Waiting...e.

Not too much going on around here (Mongu, Zambia) for the Lowe Family. We have finished our first year of full time language study and are still waiting to move to Lukulu. Actually, we have been waiting for almost a full month. We have to go to Lusaka on September 5 for a week of Levi's speech therapy and a Upper Zambezi Team meeting, so we are really hoping/praying that we will move very soon after we get back on September 11. This move is not as simple as packing boxes and going. We first have to figure out how to get the furniture that we had made, the washing machine and dryer from Mongu to Lukulu plus all the boxes and suitcases and foot lockers. Then our crates have to come from Lusaka to Lukulu which will take at least 10 hours, part of that will be down some very difficult roads. Then when the crates (700 cubit feet) arrive in Lukulu, we have to figure out how to get them to our house-which I just learned today-has no road to it. The 'road' that we had been using is actually our neighbors' front yards. So, we ask that you might remember us in these next weeks as we try to be patient and prepare for this move in the best way we know how. When we finally do have a 'Move Date' then things will quickly get chaotic and frenetic. Pray that we will keep our hearts in the Word and take our daily nourishment from Him.

Nifty Nine!

Hadassah turned 9 years old last week on July 28. We are so proud of her and she is growing up in so many ways. Please continue to pray for her spiritual discipleship. Pray for her adjustment to Zambia and that she will learn to love Zambia and The Lozi!
