(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.
