So, the great part thing about my mission trip is that since I’m here for 3-weeks, sometimes I get a little bit of time to just relax! I video-chatted with my nephew back home in the states today, and I had some time to catch up on writing notes about all that I have seen and learned.
The mission still remains! And you can still donate to help:
1. Help rebuild a school (Whata Secondary School) in rural eastern Zimbabwe
2. Dig a borehole (well for water) close to this school
3. Aid several specific ADRA Zimbabwe programs that were in need of funding
Next week, we’ll be really intensely working on goals # 1 & 2! You can read my last blog to learn more about goal #3.
A Visit From An Old Friend
Cora and I met in college, back at Andrews. Back then, she and I just talked about coming to Zimbabwe, like it was a dream. She is an American-born-Zimbabwe, and I am a Zimbabwean-born-American. We also both happen to be teachers! So we bonded pretty quickly, and I find that she and I both understand the two distinctly different worlds/cultures that we both find ourselves caught between!
Anyway, today, I woke up not feeling great, so I decided to stay in bed a little bit longer.
I decided to text Cora, since (by another wonderful miracle of timing) she also happens to be in Zimbabwe, visiting her family.
She and I had a lovely day catching up together!
Sometimes, it’s just nice to see a familiar face in a different place, you know what I mean? 🙂
Now, I have a lot to look forward to this weekend and next week.
The borehole will be drilled – – next week! I’m just so so SO excited that we have enough money to do at least that before I leave.
We will repair as much of the Secondary School as possible, but at the very least, the community around the school will be blessed with a reliable source of clean water.
If you still want to donate, you can still give by clicking here 🙂
Also, prayers are always accepted and appreciated 😉
Pray for the mission, for the community, and for the kids at the school.
