Just thought I'd share some photos from our recent trip to Zambia, Namibia and England. Enjoy!
Sunsets were beautiful in Mongu, Zambia.
Evangel Assembly of God Church hosted our Phase 1 Youth Leader Training in Mongu, Zambia.
In Mongu, we averaged about twenty students at each session. This photo was taken as the students gathered on our first night of training.
This was our view one afternoon from Evangel Assembly of God Church in Mongu.
We enjoyed worshipping at the Vineyard Church in Mongu where Doug was privileged to preach and Percy taught. Five of these praise team leaders were in our class!
This young woman gave a stirring testimony to God's faithfulness during worship at the Vineyard Church. She had just been accepted into nursing school after many attempts over several years. Her song of praise was beautiful!
These joyful kids were playing outside during worship!
Pastor Yuyi Mundia of the Mongu Vineyard Church has a deep passion for youth. He was one of our students and is our liaison in Mongu.
This gentleman was listening intently to Percy's training on Biblical worship.
We ended our Mongu training with a worship celebration for all the youth whose leaders we had trained. Abby preached and it was awesome!
Our Mongu students proudly display their Phase 1 certificates!
From Mongu, we traveled south to Katima Mulilo, Namibia. Our host church was Believers Fellowship, led by Pastor Yumba and his assistant, Pastor Alec. We loved worshipping with them, and Doug was privileged to preach there twice.
Our students were from three churches and four countries, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Nigeria. We met in secondary school classrooms. Pastor Yumba teaches Physics and Chemistry there.
What a privilege and joy it was to teach such highly motivated and committed students!
We had a blackboard (or whiteboard) for every session in Namibia which was a treat.
Our Namibia class joyfully display their Phase 1 certificates!
Our Namibia class gifted us with these awesome outfits as a show of their appreciation. They were created by on of our students, a tailor named Royd.
Cheri Contes and her children, Hannah and Evan, invited us to stop over in wolverhampton, England on our way home. They are fellow missionaries and friends of ours from our home church, Lake Forest. Standing with us is Cheri’s friend, Maame, from Ghana, and a neighborhood friend of Evan’s.
It was our joy to worship with Windmill Church in Wolverhampton, England. We were warmly welcomed and Doug was proivileged to preach there on Sunday morning!
