November started with a four day three night retreat all expenses paid for by the Christian Hospital Network out of Tennessee. This was the view from the Dinning Room of Livingstone and the Zambezi River on the Zimbabwe side. It was a wonderful restful time.
We arrived back to Kalomo refreshed only to find a few problems. Our water tank had sprung a leak. Michael repaired it and we are praying.
Then we received a call that the hand pump at House of Faith was broken. A friend from Overland Missions came out and helped add a couple of pipes and put on a new chain. Our problem is the rains are coming slowly and the water table is just to low. We are praying for rain.
Then the just repaired Lorry ran HOT again.....Seems something was damaged. They are still trying to figure out what is happening. We are praying....
We were blessed to be invited to a Pastor's wedding this month. Michael was able to share the Word. We always enjoy seeing people come together for such happy times.
We found out while at the wedding the bride's brother wis Michael's first trainee for maintenance work at Zimba Mission Hospital 20 years ago. It was so good to reconnect.
Well our journey started at the end of the month on Thanksgiving Day from the Victoria Falls train station to Bulawayo Zimbabwe. Michael does this for our School of Ministry MOT MOT program every other month to save money on travel and having to take our vehicle into another country. It was my first time to make the trip and I now understand what my husband really does to share the Word.
It's a 1950 or 1960's train. The journey took us 17 hours that a car would take maybe 6 stopping along the way at each small station to pick up people and goods to be carried into Bulawayo. I have so many stories I can tell about this trip ask me sometime ..... I did finally sleep.
Graduation was wonderful and inspiring. It was so nice to finally meet the people who have attended the two year classes. I am just going to post a few pictures of the event.
We all departed the auditorium for the nearby church where classes had been taught for a wonderfully prepared meal for all who attended.
Sunday Michael was invited to speak at a nearby church where two of his students attend. What a blessed time meeting new friends and praising the Lord together.
