Good news

Good News!
We just found out our accomodations upon arriving in Lusaka.
We will be staying in a 3 bedroom house that belongs to a relative of Pastor Conrad Mbewe. We drove by the house when we were there in the summer, when Pastor Mbewe was preparing to take us to the airport. We met the woman whose home it was and I remember now her telling us, "anytime" you need to use the home.

What an answer to prayer! Even this morning, I was thinking about how the Lord goes before us. We have felt that much already in being here in London, of how things have been working out.

I have been concerned about where we will be staying when we arrive until we can find a home to rent. I think I mentioned that to several people as well. I was praying this morning for God to go before us into Zambia and be preparing the way for us, and the immediate need of just finding a place to stay in temporarily.
The Lord has answered that prayer!

Even where the home is located is near where Pastor Kalifungwa lives along with 3 other missionary families that we have been in contact with over the past year. One of which we visited this summer.
Even that we saw the house, is a kindness of the Lord to me.


Today we spent the morning sleeping, after being awake some in the middle of the night. I was glad that all except Ian slept most of the morning and were able to get some good rest. Ian was the first one awake and enjoyed spending time talking with Dr. Philips. For those of you that know Ian and know Dr. Philips, we thought that would have been a good match!

We were all awake for some breakfast at noon. We then went over to Pastor Jeremy and Alissa Walkers home to spend the afternoon with them and their 2 little boys.

We are back here again, the kids are down to sleep ( though I still hear them...) and James is studying. He is preaching tomorrow morning and talking about the work in Zambia in the Sunday School hour. In God's Perfect Providence, a Zambian couple and their 3 children attend their church. I am especially eager to have the kids meet their children tomorrow.

Hope you all have a good Lord's Day tomorrow
