|Immanuel and I on the road to the well With water.|
Our experience today involved a pump installation project. It started off good, only to be derailed by a nearly dried up well. So we set off on foot not far down the road to another well that had a healthy amount of water in it. Our pump system had a few glitches that needed working out so we had to leave it in the hands of Immanuel, an installer from the area. Our leader on this project was a gentleman that truly blew my mind. Chris, a native Zambian, is beyond well educated with a PhD in agricultural science. He has had the big well paying job, but when the Lord got a hold of his heart, things began to change. He felt the Lord call him into the ministry, but not just any kind, he calls himself an "agricultural missionary" as he preaches the gospel along with teaching villages how to live self-sustained through farming. His heart is so big for his people and it is no doubt the Lord has raised him up to bring true change. Powerful stuff!

Our evenings have been suger coated with such great Zambian food cooked by Katherine, one of the staff here at Kaniki. Delicious is an understatement, and tonight was no exception. We've had a wonderful time working with a few other missionaries down here. Zoe (Mama Z) and Signe (Raindrop) have been a lot of fun to hang out with. Zoe is from England and is a wonderful musician serving with "Kaniki Orphan Project", Signe (Pronounced "Seena") is from Denmark and she is spending a couple of months down here working with Lifeline. Quick shout out for Zoe, she has an album available on iTunes that is going to help support her while she is here in Zambia. If you would take a moment to preview it or potentially buy it, just know its going to help out an amazing work over here, and I endorse it!

Once again I am blown away by our team, we've had a great time with each other! Talk about favor, I believe only one person has gotten sick this whole time and it was only for one day. People are praying and God is blessing!
There is SOOO much more that I know I am leaving out, but I will leave you with this for now.
Mulishani is the greeting here, the proper response is Bweeno, which is super close to bueno, and from all of us here, we are Bweeno!
