Destination Lukulu, I mean Lusaka...

I cooked all weekend and prepared everything needed for a week in Lukulu. We started off for Lukulu today and ended up in Lusaka. For those of you who know, Lusaka is NOT on the way to Lukulu. Jeff felt that there were some problems with the shocks on the vehicle so we made the difficult decision to pass by the turn off to Lukulu and head on another 5 hours to Lusaka. We were able to get the vehicle in the shop today and it should be ready tomorrow. As it turned out, we had a back shock that was broken. I'm so thankful that the Lord led us onto Lusaka to get it fixed. We hope to leave here on Wednesday and drive straight to Lukulu which should take about 9+ hours. We will stay there to continue working on the house and will head back to Mongu on Monday. While we are there, we may have the opportunity to go to church at the only Baptist church in the area which is actually about 3 hours to the west of the town of Lukulu. So, we go to eat out tonight at the only and very new Mexican food restaurant. We will enjoy eating out tomorrow and then hope to leave on Wednesday. The photo above is pretty typical of the roads around here but this one actually seems to be in very good shape. Our roads in the Western Province have huge potholes - hence, the broken shock. :)

I have been trying to get this picture uploaded for about a week. It really needs no introduction.
