Thank you for all your prayers and support whilst we were away. We had an amazing trip. The team were brilliant and it was great seeing God use everyone in different ways. It was so good to see Leah and Alex again. Leah works for EFZ and is heading up what we're doing in Serenje. She is based in Lusaka, the capital, but travelled up to Serenje with us. Alex is our Project Officer based in Serenje. They are two of the most incredible people I've ever met. Their commitment and love for the people of Serenje is inspiring.
It's always encouraging to see the amazing work that is being done by EFZ and the pastors on the ground. However the community visits to individual homes revealed the extent of poverty and how much more still needs to be done. Please pray for Leah, Alex and the pastors, as they face overwhelming need.
We didn't distribute the shoes and coats while we there. We felt that it was best that the pastors did this and they are going to email us some photos.
Over the coming weeks and months we'll keep you updated with more stories and photos of what's happening in Serenje.
Special thanks to Jacqui Webber-Gant for updating the blog while we were in Serenje!
