Our TLC Short-term Team Arrives!

The ladies from Twin Lakes Church in Aptos, California came in on a sunny Saturday morning and hit the ground running. After they arrived we went for breakfast and talked about our schedule for the next two week. From there we brought them out to Ciyanjano for a walking tour, lunch and orientation on understanding culture and life in Zambia. Our kids were especially excited to have them over for dinner the first night and couldn't eat their dinner they were so giddy about our guests.

It didn't help calm them down when the ladies broke out awesome Koinonia t-shirts and fruit snacks!

Sunday morning we visited a church pastored by one of our APC graduates in Garden compound. While we were hoping to hear Pastor Mwanza share some APC teaching, Kim & I got were called on and we both did our best to teach a sermon on the spot. Kristy taught a song and Rhonda shared her life verse. Then we joined 'em for tea and biscuits in their home. After that, lunch and shopping at the market.

Today they'll be visiting some homes of the new pastors in our college to meet and have tea with their wives. Should be a good culturally challenging day and a great chance for them to build a relationship with the wives ahead of our conference that starts Thursday. Pray for safety as they travel around the city and for good health as they prepare for the conference.
