Chamba Valley Baptist Church Kids' Ministry

Every Wednesday, the kids and I drive about 30 minutes to Chamba Valley Baptist Church.  This area is technically still in Lusaka but amazingly, far enough down a dirt road that it very much reminds me of Lukulu.  There is no industrialization out here.  
The kids have one of their summer breaks for the month of August, so this crowd of kids is far less than we have been having.  The kids go to school in shifts because there are more kids than rooms at the school.  So most of these kids were the younger group.  
I love working with these children and am so blessed to have the chance to be a small part of their lives.  Life has changed so much for us since moving to Lusaka - in most every way.  I have a different ministry here in Lusaka but am so grateful that the Lord has given me a bit of Lukulu back in the beautiful faces of these children.  Thank you, Lord!

I found your blog through Stacy's at 29 Lincoln Ave... I was so excited to see she quoted you from Lusaka. I had to find your blog... I'm a MK that spent 10 years in Lusaka!!! I loved looking at the sweet pictures you have posted. We would have church conferences at Lake Kariba, so it was a nice trip down memory lane. I'm sure things have changed so much since 1997 & yet still are so much the same. I will be adding your family to my prayer board & will subscribe to your blog.
