Homeward Bound!

Hello Friends!
I hope all is well, and that spring is finally showing signs of arriving for those in the northern hemisphere. Life has continued to be busy here in Zambia. We are just finishing the rainy season and soon the lush green will fade to brown. This newsletter is to update you about my coming travels back to the USA. I have been living in Zambia for just over two years now and the time for my scheduled home leave has arrived. I am really looking forward to seeing as many people as I can while in the states, speaking and updating people on what has happened in the last two years, and taking some time for rest. I will be leaving Zambia in just over a week and after spending a few days in the UK will be arriving back in Ohio on April 8th. I will be scheduling times to speak and visit with those at the churches that are supporting me as well as at least one or two other dates with open houses for everyone to come hear and see what I have been involved in for the past two years. Stay tuned for the dates which I’ll be sending out soon! Then, Lord willing, I will be returning to Zambia for another 2 year term on June 28th. I would love to make as many personal connections as possible while I am home. I’m sure my calendar will be filling up quickly, so please email me back or contact me on my cell (330-310-3702, working once I arrive in the states) to set up a time for us to get together and catch up on life.

I am looking forward to being home and seeing as many of you as possible during that time.

God’s Blessings on you all,

Jonathan

Sometimes swimming seems like a better option then driving!

I had a flight that where I needed to stay 2 days in the bush.  I "suffered" camping at the edge of this waterfall.  :-)
