Taking a Break

We are taking a break from our daily routines, being home, and attending school. The first part of Spring Break was extremely low-key with the exception of the three hour wait at the Passport office with all three kiddos.  I had no choice to take them.  We were there b/c it has been five years […]

Sunday in Zambia

Our precious AND handsome Temba at church this morning.  I kept glancing over at him and this is the smile I would receive!  LOVE HIM! I had the privilege of teaching two of these three this week.  The one sitting down was quite the character so I found great joy in hugging him freely this […]
