The return to Zambia

Hello All,
I have arrived back in Zambia safe and sound and am just about over the jet lag. Just wanted to update you on how my time went in the States and what I am anticipating in my first few months here.

Thank you SO much to everyone who hosted me to speak, or helped out with food or planning for some of my events. I was able to share the story and vision God has given me with 6 churches and so many others through smaller group meetings. God allowed my prayer and support base to broaden and blessed me with many happy reunions and a nice catch-ups with my family and friends.

It feels good to be back in Zambia, to reunite with friends here and to see what has changed in the few months that I was gone. Children have grown, new roads have been paved, and even a new shopping center has opened on our side of town! Progress, though sometimes slow, is happening in Zambia. Our flight schedule has picked up and there are airplanes in the hangar needing maintenance so I am hitting the ground running and anticipate a busy finish to the year here in Zambia.
Again, I just want to send a warm heartfelt thank you to so many of you that made my time back in the USA so great and to all of you who pray for me and support on this journey.

God Bless,

Jonathan

P.S. Praise the Lord I was able to raise the support I needed to continue here and am not currently in need of extra, BUT if you are looking for a good spot to give some money, we are still raising money to buy the second half of our airstrip! Only about $10,000 to go! Click HERE to get more information and give.

 

Prayers for:
– 
My work permit to be found and approved.

– My readjustment into life in Zambia.

– My workload and continued adjustment in overseeing our aircraft maintenance.

Praises for:
– 
A nice time in the USA and good connections with supporters and churches.

– Safe travel for myself and all my bags back to Zambia.
