Just wanted to let y’all know we made it safely to Ndola today around lunch time.
We pretty much went straight to the school to see the widows program. They had a graduation ceremony where 15 ladies graduated in the hospitality program (cleaning/hotel work)–and the AMAZING news is…ALL 15 now have JOBS!!! There were 30 additional graduates in jewelry making. There were tears, dancing and lots of celebrating. A BIG DEAL for these woman!!! We heard testimonies of where some of the women were before Wiphan–and had a time of singing…and of course more dancing:) (Video to come upon our return for sure…I broke it down with the ladies)
We spent time with some of the kids and then just had dinner with the Wiphan Zambia staff.
THEN…silly ole me–shed a tear (or twenty)–because I miss Richard and my babies SO MUCH!!!
Tomorrow we are having church with the community–and I’m super excited for Monday to get here to see all the children at school. SO ready to see them and give lots of more hugs! We took a gazillon pictures today–hope to download those after church and upload some to share. Still trying to adjust to time change–determined to kick it tonight.
Our team is doing GREAT. It was so fun to watch their faces today as the ladies welcomed them and sang for them. Such a powerful experience…and so fun to watch others experience it for the first time! It is so good to be here…God is all over Wiphan ministry–and I’m just so humbled to be a part of it!
