Progress

I stole this from my teammates blog... Thanks Brent!

(Grading of the Soccer Field)

Ciyanjano (Nyanja word for fellowship), is the name of our ministry center located just outside of town. About 8 months ago, we temporarily closed the property up in an attempt to control some of the monthly costs until we were in a position to start developing the property. Well, the time has come. This week, we have had a team from California visiting. Their project while they are here - start phase 1 development of Ciyanjano.

Action Zambia is a ministry that focuses on equipping local churches for the work to which God has called them to do here in Zambia. We see the ministry center as a key to reaching this vision. After development is completed, the property will be used for a variety of activities such as kids camps, pastor conferences, marriage seminars and possibly even some livlihood projects to help pastors and churches generate income.


Pit Latrine # 1

The team here has been wonderful. They've been hard at work planting trees, digging a pit latrine, tearing down an old insaka, etc... It's neat seeing a team from half way around the world catching onto and supporting the vision that God has given our team here in Zambia.
