Headed to the Village!

 

Hello Friends!

I have been in Zambia for a little over two weeks now, and I’m sure that many of you are wondering what I have been up to!  Well, just for a quick update, I have been getting to know Zambian culture, the city of Lusaka, and the Flying Mission team.  They have asked that I do not spend a lot of my time sending out prayer letters, and corresponding with people back home during this time of transition and orientation, but instead focus on learning about and adjusting to my new home!  So at the end of orientation (about 3 months) I will send out a more detailed description of all that has transpired.  But for now I do want to let you know that things are going well, and I am learning a lot!  Tomorrow, I will be leaving to live in a rural village for two weeks.  This will help me to understand and empathize with how most Zambians live.  I am looking forward to it!!  I have a Zambian host family, and I will just be living life with them for two weeks.  After that time, Lord willing, I will return to Lusaka (the capital city of Zambia) and continue with several more weeks of learning the culture, adapting to the differences, visiting places in the city, and getting details sorted out like finding a vehicle, obtaining a driving license, etc.  Then I will move into the flight orientation phase and transfer my flight licenses, and get adapted to flying here in Zambia with Flying Mission.

Praises For:

  • Safe travels through out my time traveling to Zambia!
  • A warm welcome from the Flying Mission family.
  • The many new things I have learned thus far about Zambia and it’s people!

Prayers For:

  • A healthy, beneficial time in the village.
  • Finding a good vehicle at a reasonable price.
  • Continued focus on God during the transition.
