We’re back in Zambia. MJ and I arrived back on Zambian soil, or should I say dust, this past Saturday. It’s good to be back!
We’re back at the tail end of dry season. It is windy and dusty, with no rain in site, until at least the end of October. It‘s good to be back!
We’re back at our office at Trans Africa Theological. The student body does not return until next Monday so the grounds are eerily quiet, but we are reuniting with staff. It’s good to be back!
We’re back on the pothole filled roads. Little has changed in that department. The bad news, I still have to swerve like a drunken man on the road to the college to miss the potholes. The good news is that they have graded the road leading into our house and there is even talk of it being paved. It’s good to be back!
We’re back driving on the left side of the road. In Canada, I kept putting on the wipers instead of the turn signals, now I found myself back in Zambia putting on the wipers instead of the turn signal. Confused? So am I. It’s good to be back!
We’re back battling the internet service and ‘sim’ cards for the phone. As if that is not enough, MJ just called me to say that the sewer is backing up at the house (fortunately outside, not inside). It’s good to be back!
We’re back preparing for the 2012 seminar and conference schedule in Zambia. I will be speaking at a series of pastor’s fellowships across the Copper Belt District as well as in two churches and a Pastor’s conference in Kenya. MJ will be putting the final touches on a micro-enterprise pilot project that was started in June. It’s good to be back!
We’re back writing blogs from Kitwe. There is only one thing left to say, as this blog comes to an end – it’s good to be back!!!
Until next Monday…
Taking risks for Kingdom impact!
