Well tonight at 9pm we fly from Heathrow and head for Lusaka. We'll be in Lusaka for a couple of days and then on Monday we'll drive 5-6 hours north east to Serenje. I received an email from Leah (who heads up what we're doing in Serenje) on Thursday mentioning what we'll be doing this Sunday:
I have been talking to the second lady Mrs Ireen Kunda, the wife to the Vice President of Zambia about the work the EFZ churches are doing in the Serenje communities with the partnership of Kerith church. The Vice President is one of the members of Parliament for Serenje.
Mrs Kunda is very excited about the partnership Kerith church has extended to serve in Serenje and has therefore invited the Kerith Summer team to tea on Sunday 26th July 2009 at 1500hrs (3pm) at Government House. I am making relevant security preparations for the team to get to the Government House and visit with the second lady.
How exciting is that! What an amazing opportunity.
A quick update on the shoes and coats - they're still in Lusaka awaiting government clearance. Please pray they get through whilst we're out there. We'll have a chat with the 2nd lady on Sunday and see if she can put in a good word!
Thanks for all your support and prayers.
