April in Lukulu

It is April.  I hear them.  Their noise is almost constant.  The local children are home on school holiday, yet they are mostly alone.  Babysitters are basically nonexistent in this culture although older siblings are usually around somewhere.  It hurts my heart that they are left essentially to themselves during these times – well, really, most of the time.  I pray for them.  Pray that they will grow in the knowledge of the Lord; that they will know the saving grace of Christ Jesus; that they will be safe and healthy; that someone will take an interest in who they are and cultivate their strengths; that they will feel special and loved.  I keep praying…

We have had tons of fun at our annual meeting this year in Tshipise, South Africa.  A great volunteer team from Perryton, TX came to minister to all of us.  They did an incredible job!  We had a great day of picnic and games.  Each of us wore a colored bandana that showed which team we were on.  You can see that Zoe and Levi enjoyed wearing their colors.

The kids got to do VBS with the volunteers.  What a simple pleasure it is to see your children present what they have learned in VBS.

A Bit of Fun...

A bunch of MK's getting ready for an Easter egg hunt here in Johannesburg.  Don't you just love their fancy Easter baskets???

Levi couldn't wait to get into his candy...

5 Years Old Today!

It's the morning of the 5th and Levi turns 5 years old!  He opened his presents this morning, and we are going to an amusement park in just over an hour.  He should have a fun filled day.  We are so grateful for Levi!  More pictures to come later....

The Real Africa

The pictures from my last post were taken at The Lion Park here in Johannesburg, South Africa.  These two beauties were on the side of the road as we drove through Botswana on Saturday.
And we saw these a little while ago while driving through Kafue National Park on our way to Lusaka.  Great wonders of God - all around us!

Look What We Saw Today!
