Day 5 & 6: Sabata rakanaka

Sabbath was beautiful and today has been really relaxing!

Just a heads up – I’ve got a full week ahead of me, so I may not update again until the end of the week.

Here are highlights from my first Sabbath of my trip:

  • We went to church here in Harare. I shared my “mission story” during both Sabbath School & Divine Service 🙂
  • The church members here (in the city/Harare) are very interested in helping the mission to rebuild the school!
  • Later in the day, we returned to church for the afternoon program.
  • I slipped out of the adult program and joined the children in their class outside….and made some new friends 🙂

I’ll tell the story of what happened yesterday through pictures:

This was "Uncle" interviewing me during church. I'm excited by the response here at the church in Harare - before we left church a man told us he wants to donate all the money/resources we need so that there to be Internet at the school we are rebuilding (since there are a few computers we have so far). Later this week I'll visit the school site and upload pictures!
