Independence Day

Life has been busy and...a little complicated lately. I am so thankful that I had a weekend when I could be alone, get some sleep (sleep helps A LOT with perspective), and spend some time being quiet.

October 24th is Zambian Independence Day, and this year marks 51 years of freedom for Zambia. The future is a little clouded right now with the hard economic situation and the upcoming election, but we continue to pray for our country and to be thankful that the door of the gospel is still very much open. To celebrate this national holiday, we have a flag raising ceremony in the morning, then a swimming gala down at the pool, and finally a bonfire at night. I wasn't able to take any pictures of the swimming gala since I was busy getting excited children to their races on time, but here are a few pictures from the day and the bonfire which had to be held on Sunday night because of rain.

Parting Shot: Mango season is around the corner!
