Greetings From Luanshya!

Good morning from a very cool and sunny Luanshya! Winter in Zambia means “bone-chilling” evening temperatures of 40 degrees and daytime temperatures only up to the mid 70s. When we see photos of ice storms and blizzards in the northern hemisphere in January, we appreciate the winters that we are “forced” to endure here at home.

Winter is also the time of construction and building repairs because it is the dry season – meaning no rain for at least 7 months. We have struggled with a leaking roof at the Christian Resource Centre for several years. Thanks to an extraordinary gift from Calvary Bellflower we were able to not only repair, but replace the entire roof and repair the ruined ceiling inside the building.



Our youngest Zambian son, Andrew Silungwe, just completed his studies in electrical engineering and installed the lights and sound system at cost. Last week we conducted our first leadership seminar. It was great not having bits and pieces of ceiling board falling on tables.

We deeply appreciate your prayers and support in the Lord’s work here in Zambia. We are seeing lives changed, servants prepared and the Kingdom of the Lord increased.

Together in His Service, Patrick & Sherry
